HF 658 was introduced on March 8, 2019 and referred to the House Public Safety Committee. No hearing or vote has been scheduled.
The bill increases fines for speeding violations pretty much across the board. HF 658’s title is rather telling: Increase speeding penalties and provide for the use of additional monies raised. This isn’t about enforcement for safety’s sake; it’s about enforcement for revenue. Information on the proper setting and enforcement of speed limits.
