The Law Office of Michael Rehm provides representation on all moving violations and misdemeanor traffic tickets in Santa Clara County.  A strong defense is needed more than ever in Santa Clara County since the consequences are particularly harsh, as opposed to the rest of the Bay Area. For example, there is an obscure Vehicle Code statute (Vehicle Code 13200) that allows the court to suspend an individual’s driver’s license if they are convicted of a speeding offense.  They have the discretion to suspend your license:

(1)    Up to 30 days on a first offense

(2)    Up to 60 days on a second offense

(3)    Up to 6 months on a third or more offense.

All that needs to occur for the Court to use this statute and suspend your license is a conviction for a speed related offense.  There is no requirement that you are driving a certain speed over the speed limit.  Most counties do not actually suspend driver’s license for speeding tickets, but Santa Clara County is one of the few that actually does.
