San Ramon May Boost Fines and Fees
Original post made by jrm, Vista Grande Elementary School, on Apr 27, 2010
The article on the above in this morning's paper describes San Ramon's desire to raise parking violations that carry a $20 to $30 fine up to a whopping $35. New fines include $50 for parking in a fire lane, $100 for having a bicycle in a skate park, $100 for littering and $100 for smoking in a park. Plus usage fees for all sport field wil go up substantially as well. I remember a previous thread where a ticket for not wearing a seat belt cost the citizen $300.00. I have 2 concerns, first, these fines onerous in tough times, and second, I'm sure our town would soon follow suit to catch up to this enhanced revenue opportunity. I hope folks in San Ramon will stand up and say "enough, the answer is no".
