Driving Over the Posted Speed Limit In a School Zone

By: Wallin & Klarich

Why You Need An Experienced California Traffic Attorney When Cited For A Traffic Ticket

If you are cited for driving over the posted speed limit, it is imperative that you hire an experienced, aggressive traffic attorney. California Vehicle Code Section 22352 states that when approaching or passing a school building, the speed limit is 25 mph, regardless of the posted speed limit. Typically these tickets are issued during school hours, when school children are going to and from school. However, under certain circumstances law enforcement officers may issue a citation for a violation of CVC 22352 when school is not in session.

A violation of this vehicle code will result in substantial fines and increased insurance premiums. A violation may also result in a suspension of your license if you have accumulated too many points on your record.

Hiring an experienced Los Angeles criminal defense law firm can greatly increase your chances of getting the violation dismissed. Often times law enforcement officers incorrectly interpret and enforce the vehicle code. An aggressive criminal defense attorney can cross-examine the officer at trial to make certain that the alleged violation is in fact a violation. Hiring an attorney is the best way to ensure a favorable result in your case.
