Here in good old CA, we've had these pleasant extra "penalty fines" for a while now. They amount to $17 for every $10 or part thereof of the base fine. In most cases, the penalties effectively triple the fine.
Particularly hurts in that differential between 15 and 16 mph over the limit ($76 total vs. $135).
