For the record

January 01, 2011

Traffic fines: In the Dec. 31 LATExtra section, an article about the state's addition of a $4 fee to the price of every traffic ticket stated that a proposal would have allowed cities to ticket drivers who failed to make full stops, based on photos taken by red-light cameras. In fact, the defeated proposal would have lowered the fines for incomplete stops by distinguishing them from the more costly penalties for running red lights.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis: In the Dec. 30 Calendar section, a review of three books about Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis misspelled the name of the first woman known as first lady of the United States. She was Dolley, not Dolly, Madison, wife of President James Madison.

December rainfall: In the Dec. 30 Section A, an erroneous chart accompanied an article about the recent storms in Southern California. Bars comparing month-to-date rainfall to the average for the month of December were incorrectly scaled. The corrected chart appears here.
