    [rQUOTEr]Officials from the Orange County Clerk of Courts tell us ... Howard's license can be reinstated if he pays a $285 fine.[/rQUOTEr]

    I think the Rockets should deactivate him for the season before the media backlash. These athletes keep thinking their above the law and it's getting way out of hand. The Rockets need to plan ahead and not let a Ray Rice situation come out of this.

    28 bucks per red light? That's like a minor convenience fee for him, with his salary. I'm surprised he only ran 10.

    I got threatened with $215 tickets for going 50 in a 35 mph zone on an empty road by a speed camera.

    10+ red lights for $285? Crazy. The amount of safety risk in running a red light once is much higher than going 50 mph on 6 lane road.

    Let's all start a kickstarter fund to help Howard through this difficult time.

    There's times running red lights is unimportant and times when you should obey the light or risk killing someone. I'll trust that Howard's instances are the former and call this a non-issue.

    Except that it's illegal every time. Breaking the law 10 times isn't a non-issue.
