What Are Some Common California Driving Fines?

The most common California driving fines are for speeding and red light camera tickets, and fines overall can range from $148 to $1,876 depending on the violation, as of 2015, according to California Traffic Tickets. Infractions range from texting on a wireless device to repeated unauthorized use of disabled parking.

California traffic ticket fines are difficult to report precisely on a statewide basis, because counties, municipalities and the state attach penalties and surcharges that cause fines for the same violation to vary from place to place, reports DMV.org. A ticket with a base fine of $35, for instance, may end up costing as much as $145, depending on the location.
