Following a deadly Concan wreck that killed 13 people in Uvalde County, city of Uvalde municipal court Judge Andrew Hagen has increased fines for minor moving violations from $75 to $150.
The announcement was made Tuesday during a city council meeting when Hagen updated council on municipal court happenings and key changes from recent legislative sessions, including a ban on texting while driving.
“I have increased fines from a standard fee of $75 for moving violations to $150 for a lot of different types of offenses, and the reason I made that decision is because of public safety,” Hagen said. “These are things such as running a red light or stop sign, [and] failure to give right of way.”
