Okay, we are a few weeks into the new year & I thought it would be a good idea to remind everyone of all the new and updated traffic fines for California. Make sure you don’t talk on the cell phone while driving down the 101 cause thats a $148 fine or if your caught texting its $256!

So without further audeiu here are some expensive habits to avoid while driving your car in the San Francisco Bay Area or anywhere in California for that matter:

Effective immediately, if  you do not stop at the red light, be ready to pay $436 in fines or

if you  pass a school bus with flashing red signals, you will be charged $616.

Just for your info, the next time you park in the handicapped zone, even  for a minute, you will be looking at almost $1000 in parking tickets.
