When I go to sleep tonight, I’ll be updating my mental firmware with some new rules:
– Stay off the street during street cleaning. Fine: $15
*sigh*…Been living here for over two years. Why can’t I remember?
– Do not park within 30 feet of a stop sign. Fine: $15
I didn’t even know this fine existed. And 30 feet is quite a buffer to be mandating for a stop sign that everyone coasts through anyway.
When a police car is cruising down the highway, leading a procession of cars whose drivers are obviously petrified of going faster, just stay in line. Fine: $75
Umm, yeah. I suppose that weaving through the other cars and coasting past the cop while shooting him a look that says “fuck you, pal, I paid for these roads…” is not the smartest thing to do.
Of course, that thought didn’t occur to me until after he pulled me over for “speeding.” As we all know, 60 MPH in a 55 zone is just so reckless…
When choosing to defy authority, make sure your papers are legit. Fine: $68
Like my registration card, which expired on Jan 31. *shrug* I didn’t care, but the poor affronted officer sure seemed to.
