Some people just want to know how to pay a speeding ticket, and be on their merry way. Others are interested in fighting the traffic ticket, or they at least want to evaluate their chances in succeeding if they were to fight the ticket. Just remember: the officer must prove those above elements beyond a reasonable doubt. If there is any reasonable doubt as to one or more of the above elements, then you should be found not guilty.

What Are the Consequences of Being Convicted of VC 22349?

VC 22349 is considered a “moving violation,” which means you will receive a point on your driving record if you’re convicted, or if you plead guilty or no contest to the charge. Because VC 22349 is a moving violation, you are looking at getting a point on your record unless you win at trial or unless you are traffic school eligible. Consequences also include fines of between $300 – $500, depending on whether this is a first offense or not, and also depending on whether or you not you have a failure to appear associated with this ticket.

Getting Help and Answering Further Questions About VC 22349

It usually makes the most sense to hire an attorney in cases where you are not traffic school eligible, because the cost of the attorney is overshadowed by the potential increase in your insurance premium if you get a point on your record.
