Wow!  Traffic Fines are steep!  Ever considered parking in a handicap parking space?  It could cost you $976 for the 1st offense!!    Know someone who does not fully stop at the red signal – $436.  I learned a lot from the grid below.

Now one that I did not know for sure was driving with a headset or earplugs over two ears ($178 fine).   Does driving with 2 bluetooths in your ears count?

I, for one, am happy about the fines for talking on a cell phone without a hands-free device.  In just a little over a year I was plowed into by 2 drivers who were either holding & talking on a cell phone or reaching for it.
