Here at Monks Law Firm, we take pride in helping motorists get out of traffic tickets they felt were wrongfully issued. Law enforcement can easily make mistakes, which is why we are here to help drivers. However, there are times when drivers deserve traffic tickets due to reckless driving.
In the state of California, speeding tickets are being issued more than ever now. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are fewer people on the roads than ever before. So, it seems drivers believe they can drive as fast as they want. So, police officers are cracking down on those speeding and violating traffic laws.
Speeding Tickets More Than 100 mph
LA Times first reported California Highway Patrol stated there had been an 87% increase in speeding tickets over 100 miles per hour. Just a month after the state’s stay-at-home order, the department issued 2,493 speeding tickets for those driving more than 100 mph.
The previous year only had a total of 1,335 tickets, which is a significant increase. One of the motorists issued a ticket was arrested as well. CHP charged him with reckless driving and driving without a license. The offender was going 165 mph on interstate 5 in San Juan Capistrano.
As you can see, traffic tickets are going up as there are fewer drivers on the road. This may be due to the police officers having the ability to focus on fewer drivers at a time than a multitude. Nonetheless, it is never beneficial to drive recklessly.
