    Head Injury Trust Fund

    is subject to certain sections - connected to penalties association with violation of certain traffic sections -

    Quoting section 20 as follows: CLICK HERE FOR CODE

    There shall be a surcharge of $50 on a fine assessed against a person convicted or found responsible of a violation of section 17 or a violation of a special regulation lawfully made under the authority of section 18. The first $50.00 of each surcharge shall be transferred by the registrar of motor vehicles to the state treasurer for deposit into the Head Injury Treatment Services Trust Fund. The remaining amount shall be transferred by the registrar to the state treasurer for deposit in the General Fund.

    Section 17 FOUND HERE

    Section 18 FOUND HERE

    It appears that this HEAD ASSESSMENT is not applicable - I don't find it was applied to the charges.
    The blessing is in the hand of the doer. Faith absent deeds is dead.

    Correct; $50 Head Injury Surcharge not assessed. I appealed the ticket and they scheduled a hearing:
    "The hearing you requested on the above civil motor vehicle infraction(s) will be held before a magistrate of this court on ..."

    Jeeps123, what became of your ticket?

    I beat the ticket, by the way. Magistrate seemed a little unsure how to proceed until I agreed that her finding would apply to LEGAL NAME's record. I related the circumstances on the day I ran the red light and she quickly found me "NR" (Not Responsible). Almost like she was anxious to get me out of her courtroom.

    Thank You!

    You are welcome.

    BTW it would seem that some of the cell towers in my neighborhood are unplugged? So if you have trouble reaching me for a few days, try texting.
