High School Traffic Ticket by Security Guard
My son received a ticket from the security guard at his high school, for wreckless driving. They said on the ticket that he drove across the white lines in the parking lot. There were not any other cars present. They assessed a fine of $10.00. They said that if he does'nt pay, they will add $5.00 per day for everyday he does'nt pay. Does a school security guard have the authority to write tickets and assess fines?

Re: High School Traffic Ticket by Security Guard
Its possible. I've never heard of a high school security guard being able to. Usually its college campus security. In those situations, they have special police authority, similar to that of a deputy sheriff. You could follow up on it if you want to be sure. It certainly sounds like a legitimate question.
