Re: California 22349a with Lidar, 67 in a 45
Earlier in your post, you stated "67 in 45" and "acknowledging the posted speed limit of 45mph"... So you're being charged with 67 in 45.
Also, if you were charged with 67 in 65 then your fine would have been $201 or thereabouts... From what I can see, the fine for speeding ~67 in 45 or 22mph over the limit~ should be around $321. Are you sure the $408 you quoted doesn't include the traffic school fee? And have you had any other speeding tickets recently?
What CVC section were you cited for?
I am right 97% of the time... Who cares about the other 4%!
