Probably a set fine for speeding, then a dollar amount for every mile above 10 over, etc.
I once had to fight a school zone speeding ticket, that was well over $300... Even though I was speeding (faster than the 15mph school limit, but not
the 35mpg speed limit), there was no way I could have known I was in the school zone (sign was before my street), so I beat the ticket in traffic
court. (woo hoo!) It was especially fun because I was ticketed in one of those sting operations. I'll never forget the smile on the cop as she
emerged from behind the bus stop, and then a street down, another cop pulled me over.
I tried to tell him when he pulled me over, but he still wrote the ticket.
Told him I'd see him in court, and I did, with a poster of photos and overhead diagrams. The judge agreed, and threw out the charge.
