Got this through one of those "prohibited" inter-office e-mails. Can anyone tell me if there is a place to verify if this is accurate or not? Please be aware of the following new driving laws that the police will be ticketing drivers for. Most will not issue warnings for these offenses. 1. Misuse of the car-pool lane- First time $1068.50 starting 7-1-07 (The $271.00 posted on the highway is old). Second offense is doubled. Third offense is tripled and fourth offense is license suspension. Thereafter, the driver may be jailed. 2. Incorrect lane change- $380.00. Don't cross the lane on solid lines or intersections. 3. Block intersection- $485.00 4. Driving on the shoulder- $450.00 5. Cell phone use in a construction zone -Double fine as of 7-01-07. *** Cell phone use must be "hands free" "while driving". 6.
