I am not sure what to think about these fees at all. They should not be doing these fees at all. This is so wrong to charge people these fees. This has to change. click here

They need to stop these fees in the future. They are definitely getting way out of control here. Not sure what to think about it. computer support orlando

 I'm pleased to see that officers have empathy for the high fines associated with traffic offenses.   Government is ineffective and revenue has to be made up somewhere.  However, from someone who works in a casino and witnesses it every day (dumb luck occurs) Seven (7) points is not much and a few times in the wrong place at the wrong time can occur,  so please show some compassion.  The only thing I ask of police officers is with the drinking laws so devasating, try not to make all your arrests the east way (pulling anyone over random drivers between 1:30 a.m. and 2:15 a.m.) because the problems drinkers aren't out at that time.  I understand you can pull anyone over at that time and make an arrest a high percentage.  The problem with that is the one's that hurt innocent people that drink every day don't drive in those periods.


 


In genereal you are spot on, when you state that American love to blame someone else.   In most cases the poorest drivers have the most points,
