Default $37,554.54 traffic citation

No that is not a typo

Pa. police issue traffic ticket for over $37,000




Thu Apr 2, 9:03 pm ET
BETHLEHEM, Pa. A police captain in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley said it's the highest fine he's ever seen on a traffic ticket: $37,554.54. Bethlehem Police Capt. David Kravatz said the major violation was not getting the "super load" permit that was needed because the truck was hauling a 213,000-pound steel cylinder. Police cited the driver and truck owner.
Kravatz said the truck sat idle for almost three weeks after it tipped on March 12 because a new route, proper permits and a police escort took so long to plan. It was removed Wednesday.

That's downright stupid. Why do they have to go that far? I understand the situation but 37K? Glad it's not coming out of my pocket

Price is probably due to the amount over the limit + how long is sat there + any road damage

It can actually be a really serious problem.
