HUGE California Traffic Tickets Fines Effective 01/06/2011

BE VERY CAREFUL OUT THERE!
THE LOS ANGELES TIMES HAS AN ARTICLE ON THE SUBJECT:
“FLOORING IT ON CAR FINES”.  PASS IT ON TO YOUR FRIENDS AND ACQUAINTANCES!

Please be extremely careful in your driving, and your car registration & insurance matters.  The State of California is broke and they are trying 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 to mess 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 tickets, so it’d better be worth it.

California needs money, so pay close attention to the rules of the road!
