DownDaRiver: $65-70,000 a year. A nice chunk of change to be sure. But in the overall budget, its just change.How about getting rid of a few fat suits with shiny shoes that probably drive free vehicles and don't pay tolls themselves.That would more than double in making up for the lost revenue.
fusillade762: plates that are framed or covered in plasticDidn't Mythbusters bust that one?
AverageAmericanGuy: Can't the police just pull people over who have dirty plates? It seems like you could just pass a law that made dirty plates illegal and rake in the revenue you'd otherwise lose to traffic cameras.
OldJames: It should be noted, that $48,763 of the lost revenue figure, is the cost of finding out what the lost revenue is.
Tommy Moo: Don't worry about the rfid thing; It's just an anchor. Float that possibility, and then when you "only" go with the plan to force all plates to have a barcode, it will seem less invasive.
jtown: OldJames: It should be noted, that $48,763 of the lost revenue figure, is the cost of finding out what the lost revenue is.I think you dropped a zero.
Enemabag Jones: log_jamminTommy Moo: Don't worry about the rfid thing; It's just an anchor. Float that possibility, and then when you "only" go with the plan to force all plates to have a barcode, it will seem less invasive.how is a bar code more invasive than a number?When that blue camry that just hit that kid drives off, how you read the barcode on it?
Public Savant: You americans always yammer on about your right to bear arms, but when the right and morally legitimate occasion to actually use said weapons arises, you pussy out just like the rest of the western civilization and do nothing.So again, why are the average americans so appaled at the prospect of gun control?
L.D. Ablo: Put a transponder in my license plate and it'll spend ten seconds in the microwave to kill it.I also demagnetized the magnetic strip on my driver's license.
swingerofbirches: What is up with us having nonstandard plates with serif fonts? I see some out of state ones that are orange with tin-colored letters/numbers. Plus I've seen pick-up trucks with these knobs on the back (I think it's for attaching things to the truck) that block the middle letters of the plate.I say we just copy Europe on this one. They can keep their sirens, though.
GAT_00: fusillade762: plates that are framed or covered in plasticDidn't Mythbusters bust that one?They busted every license plate blocker IIRC. Of course, we could always tinfoil up and say they didn't show the REAL method of beating it.
