New Driving Fines for 2007

1. Carpool lane - 1st time $1068.50 starting 7/1/07 (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 07/01/07.

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 07/01/07 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.

#2, 6, and 9 are my favorite.

LMAO. And I thought the licensing system here was anal enough.

#6: lol. Passengers finally get tickets.

#7: Great. More accidents caused by people staring at their speedometers. :shifty:

Amazing the difference in the East and West coasts. My last speeding ticket here was $75 for going 15 over.

I don't believe things like these from emails, they are almost always fake. Wait until you hear about it on the news or something.

Agreed, but it does make you wonder at times, is this something that could possibly happen or take effect.

Hoax email purports to share a set of new California traffic laws effective January 1, 2007 (or July 1, 2007 in a later variant)

And # 5 will be true next year because fines are doubled in construction zones but the cell phone (you will be ok if your using an hands free device) law doesnt take place until 2008.
