This is completely out of control
Read the whole thing if your blood pressure can stand it.

"Courtesy" and cronyism in the California public sector.

If you have the right job, and there are many, many more than you would expect, you can ignore toll roads, red-light and speeding cameras, and probably not even get pulled over if directly observed by an officer.

And to balance things out...a friend of mine is an over-the-road truck driver. She got stopped for speeding just north of LA, about 10 years ago; 61 in a 55. The fine...

...wait for it...

...was $628. Six hundred twenty-eight dollars for six miles over the limit.

(She challenged it and won.)

And people wonder why I don't want to move to California...

Don't be a wimp. If you don't read it you won't begin to be outraged enough. People who would have over $30K in fines if the processing company could find their address. Museum guards negotiating for protected license plate status as part of a labor agreement. It just goes on.

Embrace the horror.

I read up to the "CONFIDENTIAL HISTORY" heading.
