Summary as introduced:
Assessment of fees by Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) on certain drivers; use of fees collected.  Requires the courts to impose, in addition to any other penalties imposed, civil penalties on drivers convicted of certain offenses:  $100 for speeding at least 15 but not more than 19 miles per hour above the posted speed, $250 for driving with a suspended or revoked driver's license, $300 for reckless driving or aggressive driving, and $500 for driving while intoxicated. These fees, minus cost of collection, will be used to support issuance of bonds whose proceeds are to be used for transportation construction, reconstruction, maintenance, maintenance replacement, and/or improvement projects.

The bill also revises the schedule of driver demerit points to be awarded for speeding so that speeding 1-9 mph carries three points, 10-14 mph carries four points, 15-19 mph carries five points, and 20 mph or more carries six points.  Incorporated in HB 1563 (Rust).
