Speeding Ticket Bail/Fine Shock





V-Max 2 Busa

It's been over 30 years since I've gotten a speeding ticket so I was a bit shocked at the Bail/Fine for my recent speeding ticket.

65 MPH in a 55 Zone = $464.00 Bail/Fine

Deterant or revenue? You be the judge.???

ALL fines, fees, water, taxes, registrations, etc........are going sky high here in Ca. How else are we going to pay for our legislators pissing away our tax money, HUH? This is really becoming the USSR Kalifornia.

Revenue for the state. Deterrent to not stop, although I'd like to add the disclaimer that I wouldn't condone not stopping for a LEO. I do feel that with excessive fines, as describe, the state will push many to run.

Try to fight it with ‘Trial by Declaration’. I believe that’s an option in California and you might win it. If you don’t, I believe that you push the trial date ahead, at the least.

Google it!

That is ironic! Maybe he just saw the Busa and decided to give you a ticket :laugh:

Personally, I have a lot of opinions on tickets, but I won't bore the panel with a novel of a rant.

Hope that it all works out. You've got some beautiful riding spots up that way! :bowdown::beerchug:
