I received a fine for crossing over the solid yellow line on a high way (no opposing traffic) which violates rsa 265:22. The RSA states that the violation results in a fine of $100, but my citation says $124 based on the fine schedule. The fine schedule does state $124, but I was not given a copy of the fine schedule as required per RSA 502-A:19-b. I was pulled over for speeding (I was going 60 in a 55 at the time I was pulled over) and I’m pretty sure I crossed the line when the officer turned on his lights because I was going to pull over to the left and realized it would be safer to go right. He gave a warning on speeding and a citation for the yellow line. I would like to plead not guilty in the hopes of having the citation dropped or at least the few reduced to the $100 stated in the law. What are the chances that either will happen during the pre trial conference required in NH?
All fines in NH carry. 24% penalty assessment. The statutory fine is $100. The total fine and penalty assessment is $124.
