News at a glance: Double fine zone bill passes Senate
May 5, 2008 2:47 PM
The bill to double traffic fines along 19th Avenue through Park Presidio is one step closer to becoming law.
On May 1, the California Senate voted 21-13 to approve SB 1419, written by state Sen. Leland Yee. “It is simply unacceptable that we continue to lose innocent lives, including children and elders, because of this high speed avenue in our residential area,” Yee said in a press release.
New fines could range from $137.50 (speeding over the limit of 15 mph) to $2,750 (driving causing great bodily injury).
SB 1419 now heads to the California Assembly before heading to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's desk.
