that's not all that unreasonable.  here in California, we've got $860 for a right turn on red camera.

Note not only the white arrow next to Dunkin Donuts, but the very long black arrow that you can barely tell is an arrow on the actual DD plate as well.

When that sign was first put up, the DD was to the right.  The whole thing should be done over.

I'm not always the biggest champion of uniformity, but the haphazard fine  choices - HOV, Red Light, et al - from varying jurisdictions in California seems a bit clumsy. The numbers just seem to be randomly pulled from a hat.

The example I've posted seems to display that they'll err by 5 mph, interestingly. Under normal conditions (not a school or work zone), there's no fine range for 1-5 over the posted limit in Florida.

Yeah, everybody knows that.

But did you know that the Devil actually invented Clearview, and that's why North Dakota, home of Devil's Lake, uses it?

Sorry, I hate Clearview.

These are quite common in Europe. The UK sign design manual has a section devoted to the design of this type of sign.
