Violation of certain federal safety regulations is about to get a little more expensive.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is set to publish April 3 a Final Rule increasing fine levels for a bevy of different violations of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. The increased fines will take effect 60 days from the April 3 publication.

The increases are meant to account for inflation, FMCSA says, and were mandated by 2012’s MAP-21 highway funding law.

Here is a chart of all of the violations that will see increases, with their old and new fine levels:
