>· Carpool lane - 1st time $1,068.50 starting 8/1/07 (The $271 posted on the highway is old).. Don't do it again because 2nd time is going to be double, 3rd time triple and 4th time license suspended.

>· Driving on the shoulder - $450.

DUI is jail now wow, I have 3 friends who have gotten dui's in the past but never jail time. Just suspended licenses ect... Damn i hate using hands free, I feel like some kind of extra on star-trek with that crap. 1000$ for carpool lane is just rediculous, post a link for all this new information pls.

Ok I think the fines are alittle high, but other than that I am pretty happy to see these. Hopefully they enforce them. I wish they had the handsfree law here. I can't count how many times I've had to swerve to miss people who weren't paying attention and on their cell phone. also the 3 mph over is ridiculous. I know most police officers don't start pulling over until 10 or so mph over the speed limit.

ok, i have a radar detector. last l\night i was out for only 1/2 hr and past 2 parked cops (both scanning), 3 sherifs (followed one, another followed me, and passed #3 going opposite driction), and 3 cops going opposite direction (2 scanning). during the scanning i was goin 10mph over and quickly dropped to 5 over before being noticed and cops following/passing were easly doing 5+ over (5 was most when following until deciding to pass).

as for lane changes and hands free, ill use my signals and earpiece when they do.

so yes, i too call PARTIAL bs onthis matter.
