SUPPOSEDLY this came from a reliable source, but I heard on the news that the hands-free ticket was $20, plus about $80 in court cost. So, any truth? What say you men in blue (or, brown)?

NEW FINES STARTING JULY 1, 2008.......YOU BETTER BE CAREFUL!


New Driving Fines for 2008 for State of California

1. Carpool lane - 1st time $1068.50 starting 7/1/08 (The $271 posted on the highway is old).
Don't do it again because 2nd time is going to be double. 3rd time triple, and 4th time license suspended.

2. Incorrect lane change - $380. Don't cross the lane on solid lines or intersections.

3. Block intersection - $485

4. Driving on the shoulder - $450

5. Cell phone use in the construction zone. - Double fine as of 07/01/08.
Cell phone use must be 'hands free' while driving.

6. Passengers over 18 not in their seatbelts - both passengers and drivers get tickets .

7. Speeders can only drive 3 miles above the limit.

8. DUI = JAIL (Stays on your driving record for 10 years!)

9. As of 07/01/08 cell phone use must be 'hands free' while driving. Ticket is $285. They will be looking for this like crazy - easy money for police department

Even though it's a hoax, there is a point that must be brought up. Every County can set their own bail schedule. LA County has a more expensive bail schedule than Orange County for the same offenses.

But the song remains the same....don't break the law, and no ticket. :D

Breaking news:

Governor Schwartzenegger has declared FJ Cruisers exempt from traffic citations because they're so cool!

(ok, it's a hoax of my own devising - wishful thinking)

I was just about to say! Those are hefty fines. Glad it's a hoax. Not that I do any of those things, but you never know if you ever get forced into the carpool lane or block an intersection.
