House Votes Down Bill to Increase Speeding Fines

Posted:

A bill to raise the fines for speeding on North Dakota roads has died.

 House Bill 1048 was intended to deter people from speeding on highways.

The bill would have raised the fines for speeding in a 55 mile per hour zones or lower to $2 for each mile over, it would have bumped up to $4 a mile over for speeding in 60 and 65 mile per hour zones.

And left the fine for speeding in 70 and 75 mile per hour zones unchanged.

The bill got a majority of the votes in the House, but did not get the minimal number of votes, which is 48 to pass.

Sponsor Representative Dan Ruby, says 11 House members were absent last Friday which threw off the vote.

An attempt to reconsider the vote Monday also failed.

Ruby says he intends to bring the issue up again next session.
