Speeding in a School Zone about to become A LOT more expensive

Due to the passage of N.C.G.S. 20-141.1 the fine for School Zone speeding violations will go from $25 to $250 starting August 25, 2011. This will not apply retroactively; so only citations issued on or after August 25, 2011 will include the increase. This law was passed with the interest of children safety, which is the same reason why the District Attorney’s and Judges are not normally inclined to allow a reduction in the charge that includes moving it out of a School Zone violation.
