An investigation by the Star-Ledger finds that New Jersey towns, on average, are far more dependent on revenue from municipal court fines than average. Generally, municipal court revenue count for only 2.4 percent of a town's cash flow. Ten New Jersey towns use court money to fund 10 percent of their budgets, and one town uses 17 percent. Extra stories on parking and speeding tickets add an extra dimension in this look at court revenue.
