Price of a traffic ticket going up $4 - latimes.com
California motorists, already in sticker shock over rising fines for parking and traffic tickets, should prepare for more beginning Saturday.
The state is adding $4 to the price of every traffic ticket. The fee will pay for emergency air transport services because of a revenue shortfall in Medi-Cal funding. It is set to generate an estimated $34 million a year through 2016, according to state estimates.
