I'm a CA licensed driver. I got pulled over in Utah for doing 74 in a 65 zone. According to the officer, he had me on radar for 77 mph, though I don't think I was driving that fast and he never showed me the radar and officer was driving in opposite lane. It was on U.S. Route 89. Weather perfect. Visibility 100%. No cars around. I only had 1 speeding ticket 20 years ago in CA. I have a clean driving record.
The ticket is only $90. But I'm afraid that it will add points to my record in California thus effecting my auto insurance rate.
1. Will this ticket effect my insurance rate in California if I pay the fine (guilty)?
2. I have read online that this will not be reported to CA DMV because it was below 10 mph over the speed limit, this true?
Criminal Defense Attorney
You would need to ask a California attorney as to what the CA DMV will pick up. Likewise you need to ask your insurance agent what will cause an increase in your rates. I would suggest you get an attorney to see about getting you a plea in abeyance in Utah. A plea in abeyance will eventually have the case dismissed.
