Don't Pass That School Bus — and Other Increased CA Tickets for 2011

January 6, 2011

Don’t even thinking of parking in the bus lane, reading a text or passing that little yellow school bus with flashing lights. Take a look at the new increased ticket rates in California.

Did you move recently? Failure to notify DMV of address change within 10 days will cost you $214 (tip: head to your nearest AAA to get the addressed changed.)

We know you’re in a hurry but you’ve got to stop at that red light or it will now set you back $436.

Still taking part in the California roll? Failure to stop at a stop sign is now $214.

That school bus taking up the entire road and slowwwwllllllyyy loading children? Stay put. Passing a school bus with flashing red signals is now $616.

Even reading a text while driving will now cost you $148.

We know, you just had to run to the dry cleaners — well don’t park in that bus loading zone unless you want to shell out $976.

Talking ‘hands-free’ but using your iPhone headphones? Covering both ears with earplugs or headsets will cost you $178.
