Get ready to be fingerprinted for TRAFFIC CITATIONS!

This Bill authorizes fingerprints to be taken even if it is just a traffic citation. It has passed the House and is on the CONSENT calendar for the Senate??? meaning they don't consider this bill to be more important that establishing State Leaf Day!!!

Our Freedoms frittered away!! 

This bill authorizes, in regard to the issuance of a citation in lieu of arrest for violating a law, ordinance, or traffic violation, the affixing of the person’s fingerprint to the citation instead of or in addition to the person’s signature. Furthermore, this bill authorizes the courts of this state to implement procedures for the use of electronic fingerprint captures in the signing of pleadings, court orders, judgment orders, affidavits of complaint, arrest warrants, a mittimus or other court documents.
