VIDEO: CA Senator Wants Traffic Fines Reduced for Low-Income Earners

State Sen. Bob Hertzberg, from the San Fernando Valley, is aiming to change California's traffic citation system for low-income drivers, reports KCBS.

"You should pay a price when you violate the law, but the price can't be a thousand times your annual salary," Hertzberg says.

Under his proposal, traffic fines would stay the same but people who are unemployed or on welfare can qualify for a reduction.
