Cali_KR Posted January 11, 2011 Report Share Posted January 11, 2011 (edited) HUGE California Traffic Tickets Fines Effective 01/06/2011 Please be extremely careful in your driving and car registration & insurance matters. State of California is broke and they are trying hard to squeeze all of us hard to collect money. Effective immediately, if you do not stop at the red light, be ready to pay $436 in fines or if you pass a school bus with flashing red signals, you will be charged $616.* The state of California is going for blood, so be extra careful in driving, you cannot afford messing with them.* I have been hearing that Highway Patrols are under pressure to issue a lot more tickets than last year with at least 30% increase in fines over 2009, so beware of radar guns, highway and traffic cameras installed everywhere and the tougher enforcement of parking rules. Just for your info, the next time you park in the handicapped zone, even for a minute, you will be looking at almost $ 1000 in parking ticket, so it'd better be worth it. California needs money, so pay close attention to the rules of the road! Traffic Ticket Fines (Effective 01/06/2011) VC 12814.6* * $214* * * Failure to obey license provisions.
