Watch out bullies and slow drivers, you’re about to get fined
Just when you thought the other shoe had already fell, they slip some more in on ya, don’t they?
Well, how about new taxation and new penalties to pay. Believe it or not, I agree with some of these. But, not all of the changes.
The “bullying penalty” is a great idea. This one should be a nation-wide penalty. I would love to see how many of these bullies quickly create a history of being a bully where nobody paid attention before.
Florida’s new “Road Rage” law is also a good idea, but is it necessary. I thought Florida already had a “impeding traffic” law on the books. Maybe it doesn’t include the driving record penalty the new law creates.
Minnesota doubles their cigarette tax and Arkansas adds .05% to their sales tax which doesn’t effect me till I move to Minnesota or Arkansas.
Did I read that correctly? In New York they pay $4.35 per pack in taxes for cigarettes. I pay $4.35 per pack in California after taxes. That would be $8.70 per pack of smokes. No wonder New Yorkers are such rude bastards. I would be too if I was getting hosed like that.
Here’s a good one for Virginia. Let’s give you a tax break for buying an alternative fuel type vehicle, but because we are losing the fuel taxation previously acquired, now you have to pay an additional $64.00 per year for having an alternative fuel vehicle. And, they say “double jeopardy” is against the law.
The rest is increased taxation for fuel taxes, like we don’t get screwed at the pump enough. Hey folks, my Scooter gets 85 miles per gallon. Consider it.
