If you have been caught going 80 miles per hour in a 60 mph zone, you can expect to receive a speeding ticket. In most cases, you will typically be issued for violation code 22349.

You will receive the exact fine amount on the courtesy notice.
In California, on arterials whereby the speed limit is lower than the maximum speed limit, which is 55 mph or 65 mph, based on a speed zone study, a lidar, radar, or any other type of suitable electronic speed detection device could be used for enforcing the speed limit.
Nevertheless, to conform with the speed trap rules that are in place in California, the speed zone study needs to have been carried out in adherence to the speed zone study rules that were established and set out in the California MUTCD.
Should the speed zone study not have been valid on the day the speeding ticket was assigned or the speed zone study did not reflect the requirements of the California MUTCD, particularly in reference to the 85th percentile speed, then the court may dismiss a speeding ticket for 22350 vc if you do decide to go ahead and contest it.
It is critical to note that this requirement is not applicable to speed limits on residential streets, i.e. those that are less than 40 feet wide or near school zones where there is a 25 mph speed limit.
The basic speeding law in California means that driving at a speed that is greater than what is considered reasonable or product having due regard for the traffic, visibility, weather, and so on is prohibited. In basic words, you need to make sure that you always drive at a safe speed, yet what is considered safe does depend on the circumstances. For example, on a certain road, it may be safe to drive 55 mph on a sunny and bright day. However, going at this speed could be dangerous if the road is wet and it is dark, meaning you would be in violation of the basic speeding law.

There are a lot of different strategies that could be used to beat the speeding ticket that you have received. However, it does really depend on the sort of speeding ticket that you have been provided with. This is why it makes sense to get in touch with a trusted car speeding lawyer who will be able to assess the situations surrounding your ticket to ensure you get the help and assistance that is needed.
It is important to remember what you said to the police officer when you were issued the ticket. Before a defense can be drafted by your attorney, you do need to remember what you said to the police officer when they pulled you over.
If you said that you were speeding or you admitted you did so without providing any sort of reason or excuse, it could be very hard for you to dispute your speeding ticket. However, this is why it makes sense to at least contact an experienced attorney. They will be able to assess all of the particulars concerning your case and they will provide you with their expert opinion as to whether or not you have a chance of success.
