Fuck You, 5-0! June 15, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — the108 @ 5:13 pm

I got a fucking ticket yesterday. When entering post, some Nazi bitch of a guard was pulling over, like, every other car and she pulled us over because Owen was not in a booster seat.

We were confused because Owen is over the 4o pounds required to have him out of a booster and he was in his seat belt and behaving himself so we didn’t understand what was going on.

We sit at the gate for, like, ever and wait for the police. The cop comes out there and we explain to him that we’re unsure of why we’ve been pulled over since no laws were being broken. At this point, we are informed that the law has changed and that as of June 1st, all children under 8 have to be in booster seats.

What the fuck? How in the hell were we supposed to know that?

So, Dean says to the cop, “What the fuck? How were we supposed to know that?” and the cop says, “Well, maybe you should read the newspaper.”

So, basically, we got a ticket because we don’t read the newspaper and we don’t have a tiny chip in our heads that goes alerting us every time a law changes.

Dean tells the cop that we are not paying that ticket and that we will contest it in court. I find it bullshit that we weren’t just given a heads up or a warning or something instead of a ticket.

We go through that gate every single day and at any given point, a guard could have informed or given us a flyer about this recent change of stupid laws. Nope. It seems that we must rely on our abilities to just know these things without having to be told.

Because everyone can do that.

Am I weird for thinking this is bullshit? Is my 95 pound 8 year old required to be in a booster seat? I have a very hard time knowing that the kid I borrow clothes from should be required to sit in a booster seat.

Dean had better start eating more or he’s going to end up in one, too.

    That is BS and you should totally fight it

    It is BS and you should have been given a warning first…unfortunately as they say “ignorance is no excuse for the law” and fighting it might not help

  3. Asara Says:

    Yeah…

    You know that law that says that if a cop has someone pulled over on the highway and you’re going to pass them you either have to slow down to like 35 or get in the other lane?

    State cop got me on that one, I had no idea. I don’t read the paper, I never drive on the highway, or go to another state since it’s posted at all the state borders now, it was like 3 in the morning, and he was pulling AWAY from the person he had pulled over.

    I got like four points on my license from it too.

    Sonofabitch.

    The bastards changed the law here too but they did publicise it and send out leaflets to everyone… I got one and I don’t have kids. It is illegal here for any children under 135cm tall or 12 years old to travel in a car without a booster seat.

    Sorry to hear you got a ticket. If it makes you feel better Paul got our car towed on Tuesday and cost ME a lotta money, as he has already run out of money this month. We will also be disputing it.

    Here I think it is 100 pounds or 10 years old or something. I didn’t know every state had different laws – but if they just changed it you most certainly fight it! I mean on something like that they need to mail thing to people or something!!
