House debates traffic fines

Published 02/11/2011, The Jamestown Sun

BISMARCK — A bill that would allow cities to increase traffic fines created lengthy debate Thursday in the House before gaining approval. House Bill 1278 would allow cities to increase their traffic fines by up to double the state fines. Cities would keep the additional revenue. Testimony revealed the biggest issue with current fines is they do not act as a deterrent, said Rep. Brenda Heller, R-Beulah. The bill would allow individual communities to set traffic fines with their local experience, she said.
