LOL Sounds like a plan to me.

About time they started punishing those that deserve it.

Here we go again. Any excuse to take in more money. Why don't they just take what they want out of our checks every week and get it over with. That would be robbery so what's the difference, this is extortion only with a so called legal cause.

I disagree. This would be justice. Penalizing those that violate the laws is appropriate.
I agree

I have to agree with Taz. If you dont drive recklessly or drunk and cause an accident then you have nothing to fear or worry about. If you are one who regularly drives intoxicated then be afraid, be very afraid.

Fair fee in my opinion. the person who caused the accident due to recklessness or DUI should be the one to pay for the police response. I'd like to see it taken a step further and require reimbursement to the fire dept expenses if they must respond.

Tell
that to the cop or judge who sees an extra $100 for the county. This could encourage cops to ticket more people for that extra 100.

Maybe you all should just hang up the cell phones, pay attention while driving, and obey all the rules of the road! THEN, the roads would be a lot safer AND you wouldn't have to worry about extra fines!

You all act like this is something you're gonna automatically have to pay. You don't pay it unless you f up, so don't f up!

The county needs to spend the tax money on the programs that the tax was levied for in the first place. No new taxes or fees, cut spending and government

Here here "Good Driver". Don't drink and drive, don't text and be wreckless, slow yerass down, don't flee, and you'll have no problem. Throw the book at those who do. I say make it $ 3500.

I'm a member of the local fire department and I see state troopers give reckless driving tickets all the time for any accident. Last year a 18 year old girl ran off the edge of the road and over corrected, ran into the median strip and got stuck - got a reckless driving ticket. Most of the time they give reckless driving to all accidents unless you can prove otherwise.

The 18-year-old girl was probably texting. Reckless!

Thats right. Reck the car. Reckless driving. Then tell your wonderful story to the judge. Good luck getting it droped or reduced when an extra $100 is on the line for the co.

Skip your meds today or are you normally deranged?

Better go back and finish 5th grade as your English is deplorable.

Seriously!

Don't break the law and you don't pay fines. Even a moron can figure that out.
