After You Pay a Traffic Ticket, Where Your Money Goes

After You Pay a Traffic Ticket, Where Your Money Goes- blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets. 

The Los Angeles Superior Court reported the following in its 2011 annual report.

Did you know that there are nearly 2 million traffic tickets issued in Los Angeles County each year!

The average speeding ticket has a “fine” of $100.00. However that “fine” is just the minimum your ticket will be. The ticket will actually cost much more after assessments and fees are added in. Your $100.00 speeding ticket could cost you $480.00 on average and most of that money goes to the state of California!

This is how your hard earned money ($480.00 fine) is broken down and divided up amongst the city, county, and state.

–          City – about $100.00 (for the traffic fund)

–          State – about $280.00 (for penalty assessments, night court funding, courthouse construction fund, conviction fees, security fees, criminal surcharge fund, DNA ID fund, etc.)

–          County – about $100.00 (general fund, emergency medical services fund, criminal justice construction fund, courthouse construction fund, auto fingerprint ID, Emergency Med Air Transportation.
