I like Finland’s way of doing it. The tickets are based on the person’s pay check, meaning higher fines for people who make a lot of cash

While I agree some of these are horrific, I can’t agree that this is how every state, county, and town do it. Where I live (VT), most of the Leo’s are assholes and the court will work with you to pay the fine or lower the cost. And this is just one example, I hope John does a follow up piece about the good too

This happened to me 2005/06 when Cali was trying to increase city revenue after the state nearly going bankrupt and balance massive cuts to funding. I drove a p o s pick up truck that got pulled over alllll the time. I drove this truck because it had been payed off and I enjoyed not having a car payment for the first time in 8 years. i gotten so many violations that my license was suspended. without a license i could not work. i felt i was being set up to fail by my own country and treated as a criminal all the time. Except i was rad a samaritan even. "A do-gooder" my Grandma used to tutt. i even tried to fight a couple of wrongful tickets and that was another joke of a bureaucracy stacked up against me, and everyone in the room there to "exercise their rights" i was very dishearten. Summer of 2006 I left America. Hell in a hand basket i said. Im Irish now. mic drop. Love you John keep on x.

Friend got a DUI in 2012, lost license for several years, never drove never drank again, got it back but has to have a blow and go, that’s 80 a month, and what most people don’t know is that blow and go’s fail on lots of stuff other than alcohol. Juice, energy drink, food, cigarettes. My favorite, breathing the air, in the car, after using washer fluid. And any fail in a running car will cause driving privileges to be revoked. The letter comes about six months later and you have a week to request a hearing to explain what happened and have driving privileges reinstated, oh and that hearing request, has to come with a request payment, of $450.00. So that’s a full weeks pay, to have a hearing...for using windshield washer fluid.

Linus W (10 дней назад)
I've got a question: is it illegal in the United States to be drunk in public? Or to consume alcohol in public? I'm from Germany and it's totally legal here to walk drunk in circles around the city with a bottle of beer or so in your hand, so I don't know such laws :)
mike askme (7 дней назад)
@Linus i did not know either, heck when i was college my room mates and I were drinking on our porch, police came on their bikes and told us we were breaking the law by consuming alcohol in public and we can be fined for it. I guess that is why in the USA there are no more neighborhood bars and most night clubs dont survive their first year, the trouble for most patrons is not worth it. Count yourself lucky you dont live here, but you should also be careful because the way we got here in the USA, i can see it happening all over Western Europe, so be very vigilant or you guys will be in the same boat.
Linus W (7 дней назад)
Thanks for the answer that was new to me I didn't think you could be fined for such a thing. I mean being fined for driving drunk is ok but only for walking home sounds a bit hard to me. I think in Germany if the police met you drunk they would leave you alone unless they notice that you won't make it home (like if your sleeping in public and don't react when they try to wake you up) then they would call an ambulance but most if the time they just leave you alone. I live in Munich and if we had such laws the police would have a lot to do when there is the Oktoberfest. :)
mike askme (7 дней назад)
@Linus W, no its not legal in fact you can go to jail for public intoxication which in Ohio will cost you at least 300 dollars. I remember the last time Michigan won the final four, some buddies and I went to a local bar to watch it, i got a little to drunk so i knew i could not drive home, so i did the responsible thing, i decided i live about 6 blocks from the bar, so i started to walk home. Next thing i know i am being arrested for public intoxication, i go to court. I explained to the judge that i knew i was to drunk to drive, so i walked home thinking i was doing the right thing. His response was, you did, but you were intoxicated in public so its a damn if you do or damn if you dont situation, 300 dollar fine.

Moral of the story? Save some money in case sudden bills pop up and pay your bills. No matter how poor you are, over the couple decades youve been alive you should be able to accrue at least a couple months worth of pay. If you are out of money you are out of options, and if you then have some bad luck youll be screwed.
zweck4629 (5 дней назад)
Yes instead of being prepared and looking out for yourself you should complain that the world is not perfect and demand that it all changes. After all it is better to pursue change on a grand scale halfheartedly with a comment or a facebook status and achieve nothing instead of affecting something close to you and actually making a positive difference. Lets be real, fiscal responsibility is something that should be common sense but apparently is not. If you are living paycheck to paycheck you are living above your means.
mike askme (7 дней назад)
@zweck4629 moral of this story is not that BS comment, the moral of this story is to vote, vote for people who will have your interest at heart and not dick heads interest at heart like you. That is the moral of this story.

They're technically breaking the 7th amendment too: "In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law." (This law was initially meant for cases involving corruption but isn't often cited and can technically be used here.) $20 in 1789 is approximately $530 dollars today (https://www.officialdata.org/1789-dollars-in-2017?amount=20). If a case exceeds that amount, it immediately goes to the Supreme Court unless there are laws counteracting it (higher amount/lower amount), but at some point it MUST go to the Supreme Court). As shown in Municipal Violations: most people pay close to $1000 to get out of parking tickets if they couldn't pay at the time. This means theoretically EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THOSE CASES must be handled by the Supreme Court. Now is that going to happen, most likely not because that means most of these cases will be dismissed, but it'll probably end a lot of this scummy behavior.

I don't understand why anyone is outraged by this. Don't speed. You put people's lives at risk. We are so repugnantly selfish I hope we get nuked. This country is so blessed, we have so much and we shit all over it and then complain and bitch and whine about everything. Don't fucking speed. Get off your cell phone. Stop being so intolerant to other drivers not moving as fast as you would like. Everyone is such a hurry to get where? Work? Fuck that, I'd rather be late. Home? So you can sit on your comfy couch, stuffing your face with food and complain about things you watch on t.v. as if your shitty existence or opinion matters. You can't even be nice to other people's loved ones driving on the road.

@theinitialscc, so says the man who has probably broken at least 3 municipal laws a day.
theinitialscc (23 дня назад)
I feel for that grandmother. But I live on a road with houses close to the street, that leads to a major highway. The speed limit is a very reasonable 35 mph. The road is windy, it's in the country, those of us who live here like to collect our mail, mow our lawns, walk in our neighborhoods without being run over by people driving twice that amount. Every day I come home from work and signal, and slow down to pull into my driveway, some asshole beeps his horn and goes tearing around me, gives me the finger, calls me an asshole. For parking my car where I live. I don't know if fines are the solution. But American drivers are some of the worst pieces of shit humans on the planet. We are so disrespectful to one another. If you are driving past my house, you are probably my neighbor, just a little further down the road. I wouldn't do that where you live.

Problem with US is that even if the state laws change or legislations change in the government, corruption and rich companies will always find a way around it. I think every country have this problem to a certain degree, but America is supposed to be a example for the rest of the world if u know what I mean. It’s so scary to see how disposable people are in that country.

Just think about whom the law targets for their fees the most? Yep, you guessed it: the African-Americans. The system knows darn well a majority of AAs can't pay the fees on time, which leads to what? You guessed right again, arrests. And all these are reported as crimes. What does this mean? Right the first time: more and more AA's "commit" more crimes than any other ethnic group. The system knows what they are doing and who they are targeting.

I love John Oliver and all of his segments excluding this one. Its pretty ridiculous to blame the state for when you commit a crime and can't/refuse to pay the fine. Can't afford to pay a ticket? Stop breaking the law asshole or don't drive. Take public transportation. These stories are ridiculous. I'm suppose to feel bad for the jackass who stole beer and then didn't want to pay his fine? Uh no. Driving under a suspended license? That was your decision. These people complaining about breaking the law and being punished is absolutely laughable. Yes, the punishment needs to fit the crime. You're trying to tell me a person who can afford a car, insurance, etc. cant afford a 60.00 fine? HORSE SHIT. Take responsibility for your actions people.

Enlightened Dystopian (2 месяца назад)
But this whole ticket idea is kinda flawed. The reason why tickets are $200+ is to get people to not speed or do any other traffic violation. You know, it's like how murder gets you a life sentence, it's supposed to discourage you from doing a crime. The government doesn't take into consideration the economic status of people who might violate the crime, because they shouldn't have to. It is very easy to not violate traffic laws, and when people do, they get fined that much money to discourage further breaking of the law. Now yes, some people might not be able to afford that, but that's not the government's fault. I hate to say it (because I'm socialist) but this is capitalism. It's YOUR fault you couldn't make enough money to pay that ticket, not the government's.

Fun thing to think about: Corporations exist for the purpose of shielding their corrupt executives from personal liability for committing crimes that harm people. (financially, physically, etc.) When they are caught having, for example deliberately ignoring safety regulations that then end up killing dozens of their employees and/or customers what happens? First, many lower level employees lose their jobs for having followed said decision, some of them possibly facing criminal prosecution. The corporation (note, not the CEOs) get fined millions of dollars that usually are a fraction of their monthly profits. The CEOs responsible for the decision usually keep their jobs, but may get 'punished' by reduced bonuses. (NOT reduced salaries) And then more low level employees are laid off to bring the CEO bonuses back to level. In China, when a CEO is caught deliberately making a decision that kills people... He is handed the death penalty! In America, when a CEO is corrupt, everybody ELSE pays the price. In China, the CEO pays the price!
