I had an awesome present waiting for me when I got home tonight; the bill for that citation all ye moons ago. I’d previously guessed – jokingly, I thought – that it’d be like $170, rather than what I presumed was a more common $40-$60. Well, turns out it’s $410. Plus $5 payment fee. Plus traffic school. Plus $30 for the traffic school.
Funnily enough, it used to be about $170, five or six or more years back, until it was more than doubled overnight in order to raise revenue, so Google tells me.
Kinda pointless really; being pulled over was the deterrent, not the fine.
