    I'm glad that NJ will be spending local taxpayers $$s to make yet more money outta their citizens.

    Not only that

    In the once great state of MA if you are wrongly given a ticket and you fight it you have to pay a fee for the privilege of contesting the ticket even if you are found not responsible.

    In other words you have to pay to have free access to the courts for legal redress.

    Nice huh?

    Certainly sometimes cops go from protectors of their society to predators of it.

    Looks to me like that's likely to happen as the economy puts police budgets on the line.

    They'll be generating revenues to justify their donut eating do little and wait for retirement lifestyles now.

    I hate pretense. One I hate more than all the rest is this pretense that traffic laws exist to make driving in traffic safer for all. Horse pucky. Traffic laws are revenue generating laws, nothing more.
