California gives out more than four million traffic tickets each year, the majority of which disproportionately fall on Black and Brown communities across the state. It also has the most expensive traffic tickets in the country, with the bulk cost of these tickets being driven by numerous fees on top of the base cost of the ticket. Failure to pay the full cost of a ticket can result in even greater penalties, including added fees, a suspended license and even a misdemeanor charge. For those that can afford a ticket, the impact is minimal, but for many individuals a single ticket can cause a downward spiral into economic insecurity. Come hear how we reached this unsustainable situation and what we can do to reach a more equitable and viable system for the long term.
