As a follow up on the earlier post about Ada County filing suit against the cities over magistrate court facilities, we thought it would be interesting to see how much revenue is generated on a single ticket or DUI conviction.
Here is how it breaks down in 4th District Magistrate Court:
The allocation for a typical speeding ticket written by a City Officer is:
$44.85 to the State, $5.00 to the County, and $35.15 to the City for a total of $85.00.
For a misdemeanor DUI ticket written by a City Officer it is:
$202.50 to the State, $25.00 to the County, and $905.00 to the City for a total of $1,132.50.
