After receiving a traffic ticket in California, you may notice that the base-fine is NOT the full cost of your ticket. And the traffic ticket is going to be hundreds of dollars. So how can California traffic tickets be so expensive? It is because of the fees and penalties added on by the county and state of California. Here are the additional fines:

  • $40.00 – Court operations assessment fee
  • $35.00 – Conviction assessment fee
  • 100% of base fine – State penalty assessment fee
  • $1.00 – Night court assessment fee ($1.00)
  • $7 for every $10 of base fine – County penalty assessment fee
  • $4 for every $10 of base fine – DNA Identification fund penalty assessment fee
  • 50% of base fine – State court construction penalty assessment fee
  • $4.00 – Emergency Medical Air Transportation Services fund penalty assessment fee
  • $2 for every $10 of base fine – Emergency medical services fund penalty assessment fee
  • 20% California traffic citation surcharge

Overall, California drivers end up paying 6 times the cost of the base-fine. In addition to higher insurance premiums for the next 3-5 years.
