A: Yes. There are standard fines that each court associates with charges listed on a citation. In some courts, there is not even a standard location to write a fine amount on a citation, so there is an implicit understanding when any ticket is written.

The bottom line is that you are going to have to pay a fine if/when you plead guilty to the ticket or if a judge finds you guilty.

You may be able to fight your citation or make arrangements for a more favorable resolution if you hire an experienced traffic attorney to represent you. Good luck!
