Pay Your Fines -- Or Else!!

Detroit is pushing a new, actually not so new but the attention is new, source of revenues. Unpaid parking fines. At first I was kind of going with a "you gotta be kidding me!" attitude, but there is a substantial amount of money owed to the city. ($13,000,000) A few people owe what would be a few months pay for me.

and if you don't pay and you owe for a number of tickets, then they get real serious with you.

A couple of these people look like they could possibly owe more than the car is worth, but that is unlikely.

Those Detroit metermaids are friggin' ruthless! If you are .005 seconds late:BAM! you have a ticket! They are undoubtably the most efficient govt. agency on the planet. I have gotten a couple tickets for parking (and promptly paid them) in Detroit, and it is definately a revenue engine for the city. Probably why they want to attract people down there...MORE OPPORTUNITY TO TICKET THEM!

I've had one parking ticket in my life and that was for parking on the side of the street between 2 and 6 AM in Lansing. It was $5.00 around '85

You want to talk fines? If you go to my blog that I wrote yesterday, you'll see how much the system can fine somebody for something they themselves didn't even do! Wonder what they do with all these "fines"? Give them to Katrina victims I suppose?

In Lansing if you pay it within the hour it's only a buck. Gotta be during business hours though.
