Once again we are told that the “fines” imposed by the city for restaurants, red lights and everything else are for “our own good”
Restaurant rating systems better our meals
Red lights light cameras keep us safer
In realty the fines imposed are an income for the city. These fines are INCLUDED AS A LINE ITEM FOR CITY INCOME. Meaning they COUNT on this money to operate.
And now with the red light cameras, the city has a DECREASE of 15% or more in fines because we are obeying the laws.
You know what this means? You got it! Higher taxes or more fines imposed.
I cannot wait till we get fines for drinking a 20oz drink – whats next portion size?
