Floridians Dig Deeper

July 1st, 2008 by flanews

It will now cost more in Florida to get a divorce or to pay a speeding ticket. Several fees increased today. Court cost went up significantly. Traffic violations will now cost an extra 17 bucks. The fees were adopted by the legislature and the Governor as a way to help fill the four billion dollar budget void. Captain Mark Welch with the Florida Highway Patrol sees an upside to the fees. Welch hopes the increased fines will encourage Floridians to become better drivers.

Its not just a fine, the consequences of bad driving habits sometimes lead to crashes, injury and death and thats what were trying to avoid here, said Welch.

Tuition will also increase by six percent.
