Bright & Early: Where It Hurts Edition

Good morning, Nashville. As of July 1, we’ll be shelling out just a little bit more for our traffic tickets than we used to. Strapped for cash (who isn’t?), the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation will be be requiring municipalities to tack on an additional $13.75 fee per violation when we pay our tickets before the court or compliance date. And yes, that fee applies to every individual violation on the citation up to five. The TBI plans on using the extra cash to fund their crime labs since next year’s budget was significantly reduced.
