Driving 100 MPH or More – VC 22348(b)
Under Vehicle Code Section 22348(b), any “person who drives a vehicle upon a highway at a speed greater than 100 miles per hour is guilty of an infraction…”
This law is very straightforward. If you are driving at a speed of 100 MPH or faster than 100 MPH, you are in violation of VC 22348(b).
You may think that, because driving 100 MPH or faster is a traffic offense, violating VC 22348(b) will result in a small fine. However, that is not true. Driving 100 MPH or faster is one of the most severe traffic offenses you could commit, and it is punished accordingly.
