    Default Is Speeding an Infraction or a Misdemeanor

    I received a speeding ticket going 72 mph, i remeber reading somewhere saying below 20 miles over the speed limit which was 65mph was an Infraction, however on my ticket it was marked for Misdemeanor. Trying to figure out if the police officer was wrong by giving me a misdemeanor, and if so how i should go about solving this.

    If that is the only offense for which you were cited, then I suspect it is an error as that code section should be an infraction - not a misdemeanor, even if going more than 20 over.
