Traffic Tickets Would Go Up Under Bill Passed by Senate

Misdemeanor traffic citations would increase by $5 a pop under Senate Bill 595, which the Senate just passed with little discussion.

The extra revenue would go to create the Emergency Medical Services Protection Fund, which would help EMS services in rural agencies that respond to 1,000 or fewer requests for service per year.

The bill goes on to the House.
