Maine’s Sky-High Speeding Fines Are Going Down Starting Next Week
Ever been nabbed for speeding in Maine? It probably took a big bite out of your wallet. That bite might be a little bit smaller, starting on Monday.
The Portland Press Herald is reporting that Maine's high speeding ticket fines are set to reduce on Monday, thanks to the judicial system conducting a review of the fines in neighboring states.
Fines are set to decrease by about 15%, after a study was conducted by the Maine Judicial Branch Violations Bureau.
News Center Maine reported that the study concluded that Maine charges significantly more for "lower-end speeding infractions" than neighboring states.
Hey, lead foot... Easy there! The Maine State Police said they don't really care what the fines are; they just enforce the speed limit anyway.
Slow it down!
