    Logbook Fines

    I was lucky to recieve a ticket for not having my log up to date from a local cop in PA. I was wondering what the average Ticket cost for log violations? Mine was $584.50.

    Different states charge different amounts. The federal fine, or at least this was the amount before I retired, was $$800.00

    From a retired federal DOT official

    I got a ticket in Texas for not having my log book up to date and that fine turned
    out to be $180.00.

    $500 some what dollars is pretty steep in my book.

    ok, I am not driving yet, but I did crew helicopters for 4 years when I was younger. Just left the RN nursing after 13 years where if you did not document it, it did not happen. Seems log book entries 'should' be as much a priority as oxygen?

    Depending on where you get caught. You have the initial fine, then add court costs, and an assortment of donations. Victims fund, head injury rehab fund, or what ever else they can think of. Look closely at your citation, it should be broken down.
