I was curios about how many traffic tickets the police department writes.
Failing to find the counts on the city web site I did find a list of fines for various offenses.
Some interesting ones:
- Animal not confined $95
- Possession of fireworks $174
- Watering on wrong day $145
- Watering on [sic] wrong time $120
- cell phone violation $114.10
- changing lanes–failure to signal $158.10
- cutting through property $143.10
- disregard barricade $143.10
- driving with bright lights $143.10
- following too closely $158.10
- jaywalking $65.00
- straddling lanes $158.10
What’s with the dimes?
