ND cities may get power to raise speeding fines

BISMARCK, N.D. (GPN) – North Dakota’s larger cities are closer to being able to hit speeders with much larger fines. The North Dakota House voted 61 to 30 on Wednesday to raise some speeding fines on state roads. The proposed law says speeders traveling on roads where the limit is 65 mph or lower will pay $2 for every mile per hour they’re over the limit. North Dakota House Transportation Committee Chairman Dan Ruby of Minot says if the speed limit is higher than 65 mph, the fine is $5 for every mile per hour over the limit.
