well, to some degree it is more fair. for instance - if the maximum amount of a ticket could be $200. . .. for somebody who earns 500 a week, that's 2/5 of their total income. Now, if you are a big wig making $2000 a week, that is only 1/10 of their income. It is a much harder penalty for the poor person and will have a much more devistating effect on that persons lifestyle.
And Chris, I'm not certain. I left before it ended to go wash my car. Just got back in.
