This is a change in state law to let towns set their own ticket fees. Right now, a person jaywalking against a red light, into the path of a biker gets a $1 ticket. A bicylist running a light and weaving into a pedestrian gets a $10 hand slap. A car not yielding gets a $75 bill.
The Police say they’ll start enforcing the laws when the fee fits the crime and the courts back it.

This ammendment will accomplish both those goals and is a key part of TROMP’s Enforcement Phase.
