Speeding Fines

Dear Green Lake Residents,

Another summer is gone by, and overall it was a safe summer. I met with the Green Lake property owners association board of director's on August 17, 2002, and talked about concerns regarding individuals driving over the speed limits around the lake. The Sheriff's department is continuing to patrol around the lake and issuing citations to those who are violating the speed limit. I would like to also pass on information concerning the cost of a speeding ticket. The courts set the fines and they are as follows:

1-10 MPH over $90.00
11-14 MPH over $100.00
15-20 MPH over $110.00
21-25 MPH over $120.00
26-30 MPH over $150.00

We all can do our part to make the roads safer by obeying the speed limit and by driving defensively. Traffic Crashes are the leading cause of death and injury for children and adults up to age 33.

If anyone has any questions or concerns, please call the Sheriff's Department at 320-235-1260

Thank You,

Dan Hartog
Chief Deputy
