Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, an operator of a motor vehicle may not exceed a fixed or
posted speed limit. Depending on where the offense takes place, an operator who
does so may be required to forfeit a minimum of $30, $40, or $50, and a maximum
of $300 for a first offense. A person who commits a second or subsequence offense
for operating a motor vehicle in excess of a fixed or posted speed limit within one year
in certain school or pedestrian zones may be required to forfeit not less than $80, nor
more than $600.
This bill doubles the applicable forfeitures for exceeding a fixed or posted speed
limit in a first class city.
For further information see the state and local fiscal estimate, which will be
printed as an appendix to this bill.
