Poor people are affected most by traffic tickets

Individuals and families in North Carolina who are struggling financially can be devastated by traffic tickets. According to research out of Princeton University, traffic fines disproportionately impact low-income people. In one study, not only were low-income areas targeted more by police for traffic violations, but those affected paid stiffer penalties than those in high-income areas. Anonymous data from credit reports showed that the average ticket cost $175, and car insurance rates typically went up by $120.

Media reports indicate that he was released from the Wayne County Detention Center after posting a $3,000 bond.

Video prompts North Carolina street racing charge

North Carolina State Highway Patrol troopers took a 22-year-old man into custody on August 7 for taking part in a prearranged speed competition that allegedly took place in Wake County on July 15.

An overview of reckless driving law

When a person operates a motor vehicle in a dangerous or careless way, he or she could be cited for reckless driving. This is true even if a driver's actions don't result in an accident or cause property damage. Examples of reckless driving in North Carolina and most other states include speeding, running a red light or not stopping for a school bus when it is stopped.
