Various laws govern the speed of drivers on streets, roads and highways. You can be cited for speeding if you exceed posted limits or drive faster than what is considered reasonable and safe for a specific road condition. Driver’s license suspension is fairly common in cases involving high speed violations. You can lose your license if you have two or more speeding convictions within a 12 month period, are found guilty of speeding in excess of 80 mph in a 70 mph zone, or speeding in excess of 75 mph when the posted limit is less than 70 mph. Driving at a high speed can also result in reckless driving
charges and, depending on the circumstances, highway racing and speeding to elude, which carry significant penalties. A guilty verdict in a speeding ticket case can result in:
- DMV points
- Increased insurance rates for 3 years
- License suspension
