Ndamukong Suh is in trouble for something he did on the football field ... again. The Detroit Lions defensive tackle has also been cited for a traffic violation ... again. His most recent on- and off-field incidents weren't even his worse. Lathrup Village Police Chief William Armstrong told the Associated Press on Monday that Suh's driving on Nov. 15 may not fit the charge of driving without due care and caution for which Suh was cited. Armstrong said he was waiting to discuss the case with the city attorney before deciding whether or not the citation would hold up. Suh has been involved in numerous traffic incidents over the years.

The driver of a big rig that plowed into an Amtrak train in Nevada on Friday had five traffic violations since 2008, four of them for speeding in California and Alabama, according to records from the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles. Lawrence R. Valli, 43, of Winnemucca, Nev., was identified Monday by the Nevada Highway Patrol. He was driving a truck owned by the John Davis Trucking Co. The official death toll remains at six and seemed unlikely to rise as Amtrak lowered its number of missing.

In less than eight years, fines for red-light traffic violations in Los Angeles County have jumped nearly 65% from $271 to $446, about three times the region's rate of inflation, a Times review shows. With traffic school fees, the total penalties now exceed $500. Ever-vigilant photo enforcement programs run by more than two dozen agencies across the county have added a new degree of efficiency to catching violators and capturing revenue. In November alone, Los Angeles County's Superior Court system processed an estimated 13,000 red-light tickets.

Re "Ocean of Cars Clogs PCH in the South Bay," May 9 As long as Los Angeles County is installing cameras at intersections, let's do what's necessary to start issuing red-light and speeding violations from automated systems. I live half a block off Pacific Coast Highway, and I'm delighted when traffic is backed up. Every other time of day, when I'm walking around town with my 6-year-old boy, we stand a good risk of getting pasted by the inconsiderate commuters and drunks who treat our town as a freeway.

Talk about a case of mistaken identity. Abel Acosta lives in Bakersfield. He works nights for a rail line that runs through town. So imagine his astonishment when he received a letter from the administrator for an Orange County toll road, demanding $1,700 in fines for allegedly failing to pay the toll on the 91 Express Lanes -- at a time when he was on the job 200 miles away. The letter, from a New York collection agency, said the fines would increase to $14,409.
