Turning right on a red light without fully stopping will cost you $500 in California. Parking blocking a wheelchair access curb could get you a $1,100 ticket. Is your license plate paint peeling? Some car owners have been hit with a $1,000 ticket for that.
State officials who set those fees are now acknowledging that the high amounts are threatening the financial stability of lower-income drivers who cant afford to pay those amounts.

Which will include 100% of the one million illegal aliens he gave driver's licenses to.
Anyway it is a violation of the 14th Amendment Equal Protection Clause.
"nor shall any State deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws".
“Turning right on a red light without fully stopping will cost you $500 in California.”
Gee. People do that?
This is one of the items on my list of reasons I don’t plan to set foot in California again for the rest of my life. :\
It is actually called a “California stop.”
Kinda want to see a 14th amendment case challenging squatting and giving free homes away. How can you enforce codes on homeowners and not do a damn thing about the rat infested camp with half a dozen wild dogs running around it? Why does some homeless person jump to the front of the housing subsidy list vs some disabled person who is living on a $920 a month SSI check?
Newsoms budget proposes using $11.5 million in state general fund budget money to backfill the courts in 2020-21 for lost citation revenue
“Parking blocking?” Does anyone use proper grammar anymore?
Well it is a lawless state. It only gets a lot worse from here.
If you are an illegal alien and get a driver’s lic under a false name and buy a car but never transfer the title...you are immune from all traffic laws.
If you get a ticket it goes to the owner on record.
If you get a speeding ticket it goes to a false name
If you get into a traffic accident just walk away.
No wonder so many illegals want to live in California.
Got my first drivers license in California and that’s the only thing that I got dinged for during the driving test. The tester and I had a good laugh about it afterwards.
When does a fine become “excessive” under the 8th amendment?
$1000 for peeling paint on your license plate? Really?
Fines to illegal aliens will be reduced 50%. If you’re a pedophile, deviate or Satan worshiper, fines will be reduced an additional 10%.
No, no Victor Gonzales no live here. I name Victor Garcias.
Further step towards a three-tiered justice system in California.
2. Illegals & Minorities
Let’s rethink this a little. They won’t collect on illegals, they won’t collect on minorities, they won’t collect on welfare recipients, they won’t collect on LGBT activists, they won’t collect on themselves........ I would say if you cut enough fines out it won’t cover that proposed budget that was put in place. So what’s next, cut fines for poorer citizens to 75% off?
They never learn. If you depend upon traffic violation citations to cover a part of the state budget to full fill state needs, what happens if the cops don’t write them because they don’t happen? And if you cut any do you not create a shortfall for your budget? And if you cut them do the existing fines go up to cover the shortfall to stop a deficit? So if they cut the fines to 50%, but are forced to raise the price of the fines up and not single the poorer out of that, do they actually get a discount with the higher requirement and still can’t pay them? And how long will the not poorer put up with it until they make a fuss by being treated inconsistent?
Tune in next week to the Gavin Newsom Celebrity Circus, if the news will cover the debacle to protect the little nimrod.
Typical propaganda. The plates peel because they have sprayed chemicals on them to defeat the cameras in HOV lanes and red light enforcement. The California Vehicle Code section for a lost or damaged plate is a fix-it ticket.
“Gee. People do that?”
All the time, but it depends on the county how Fast you make the turn.
Qualifying Illegal aliens can simply paint their plates over with Rust-Oleum. Cans of paint will be provided for free at the CA DMV for all who qualify.
