Bloody Justice - Under The Hood

Inside the industry.

Scott Tsuneishi
Mar 17, 2011

California’s budget deficit is projected to soar to $28 billion over the next year and half, as the state struggles to raise enough revenue. As California’s economy continues to bleed money and spiral out of control, honest, hard-working taxpayers such as you and I feel the effects of the painful recovery process; one example being traffic fines that have skyrocketed 30 percent or more for 2011.

Starting January 6, 2011, if you are pulled over for failing to stop at a red light, be ready to pay $436 in fines. If you get caught passing a school bus with flashing red signals you will be charged $616. Next time you consider illegally parking in the handicapped zone, even for a minute, be prepared to possibly shell out $1,000 in fines. The state of California is not messing around, and is going for blood. California needs money and we cannot afford to mess around with them, so pay close attention to the rules of the road if you don’t want to pay these ridiculous fines!
