Run a stop sign in Painesville and it could set you back $95. Do the same thing in Lyndhurst and it's $130. Fines can differ from city to city, but the biggest difference is in court costs: fees that are tacked onto the fines. Court costs usually total more than the fine itself, sometimes much more and they vary wildly depending on location. A special legislative committee set up to study court costs says it's time for change. Join us for discussion on the high cost of going to court on the Sound of Ideas Wednesday at 9:00 on 90.3.
