Several traffic fines are going up in the new year. The fine is increasing to $250 for failing to reduce speed and move over when emergency vehicles are on the highway. Also, the fine for failing to reduce speed and move over in a construction zone is going from $10,000 to $25,000.
The fine for passing a school bus that is stopped and has its visual signals displayed is doubling this year. A first offense will cost a violator $300 instead of $150. Do it again, and it will cost $1,000 instead of $500.
