    Where does all this money go?

    If my memory of the state constitution is correct all fines, fees, and levies go to the county in which that fine fee or levy was assessed. So a DWI ticket issued in NH County results in NH County getting the fine. The fine monies are then used to fund school department budgets. Same hold true for NC OSHA penalties and DEHNR penalties.
    Vehicle taxes, along with other property taxes fund the general county budget.
    I believe I am right on that, but it’s been awhile………

    I wish they would have been at Trails End Park on Monday afternoon and caught our fellow boater who damaged my white truck. I believe they pulled their trailer under the front end of my vehicle which not only damaged the bumper, but also the engine. Great people we have here.
    This has been reported to the HP and if I am blessed maybe someone who saw it happened will contact me.
