Traffic Commissioner John Porter, who I wrote about a couple weeks ago, finally made his return to Fremont today. None of his cases involved right turn on red violations, for which he is the only commissioner who’ll knock down the fine from $480 to $110.
But for the other cases, Porter continued his practice of significantly lowering what fines he could. He found two speeders guilty, but assessed them both $125 fines instead of the standard $234.
Since they had both already paid the $234, they left court with a tidy refund.
