Each time you pay a traffic ticket or face other accusations in a municipal court, you incur three types of charges: fines, fees and costs.
Fines = the monetary punishment for your offense. These go to the municipality in which the offense occurred.
Fees = are for specific purposes or state programs.
Local Court Costs = here is what, according to some, make traffic tickets so expensive. This money goes directly to the municipality that hosts the court to pay for court operations (mostly salaries, benefits and supplies.)
Court users who face minor traffic offenses are a HUGE source of revenue for municipal courts.
