    Subject: Speeding in New York State just got more dangerous


    Thanks to the state legislature's new budget, speeding in
    New York just got a whole lot more dangerous.

    Up until now, the state got the fine money from any local
    courts whenever a speeding ticket was paid. The local town
    got to keep the fine money from any equipment violations,
    such as broken tail lights or bald tires. Speeding tickets
    put points on your license, equipment violations don't. As
    anyone who has ever gone to traffic court will tell you,
    the courts are usually very eager to offer equipment violation
    pleas to anyone in for a speeding ticket. Hey, it saves
    you the points on your license, and now we see that it
    also puts money into the local town's pockets.

    Well, the state has now decided with the new budget that *all*
    fine money goes to Albany. Since there's no financial
    incentives for local towns to offer equipment violation pleas
    any more, we are all going to lose. Watch car insurance go
    up as well in the next year or so, since now the state's drivers
    will all be getting points on their licenses and the state
    will look like a bigger risk all of a sudden.

    Remember to send a thank-you note to your state politicians
    come election day.....

    my brother and i got pulled over in n.y. for speeding 68 in a 45. the cop was the bigest asshole in the world until my brother pulled out his military i.d. we got off with a verbal warning :p. it would have been a different story if we didnt switch drivers 5 min before.

    thats total bullshit. i hope Virginia (or any other state for that fact) doesnt get news of it and get the idea to impliment that as well.
