My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: CA
i just received the letter to pay for my ticket speeding ticket. it cost $525!!!! it was for 85mph in a 65mph zone. this happen in west covina, ca. there were no construction zone or anything like that there. is this normal or was there a typo somewhere on the letter? i think $525 for 20mph over is ridiculous.
he marked me down for speeding and wrote down verbal warning for unsafe lane change and following _____ (can't make out what he wrote), but he said i'm only being charged for speeding and the other 2 is just a warning. so i don't get why it cost $525!!! it was not by radar also, he put down approx 85.
any help appreciated since i can't call the court until monday. thanks in advance.
i also haven't gotten a ticket in at least 2 years. and those tickets i went to traffic school already. i'm 25 years old also if that helps.
