Making Fines Fairer
A speeding fine of $125 represent one third of the weekly pay for those who make $20,000 per annum, while it only makes up 6% for someone making $100,000 per annum. This applies to the cost of a parking ticket or any other flat fine. The recommendation of this piece is to make the fine dependant on taxable income of the offenders. This would require those who break the law to prove that their income is less than the highest bracket.
