you underestimate the shityness of yugos
Where I live, red light cameras skirt around the Constitutional issues by being classified as purely civil penalties rather than criminal penalties. So they can attack your credit score but not put you in jail if you refuse to pay.
So for that first test they averaged 38kwh/100km as a reference, with a ~1300 trailer.
There are fines for that, too.
Shit’s not fair - absent policing at its best and revenue generator at its worst.
You might want to rethink that. Mats Järlström is the guy that pissed off Oregon so badly for pointing out red light cameras had a flaw that ticketed innocent people, the state of Oregon tried to fine him into silence. He took his case to federal court and won.
I’m in favor of red light cameras. Running a red light is fucking dangerous.
My non-lawyer understanding is that the issues with red light cameras come more from the “right to confront your accuser” point of view. If an automated system chooses to snap a photo then you don’t ever get to actually confront that system and make it justify its actions.
They don’t mark the sidewalls, they mark across the tread. The idea is that if you were to drive your car, it would roll over the chalk, wearing it off. That’s how they can tell that the car has been sedentary.
Haven’t read the opinion, but a couple of key difference. First, red light cameras are not the physical intrusion upon your property that chalking is. Second, chalking happens while your vehicle is legally parked to determine if at some future point it becomes illegally parked; a red light camera is used while you are…
Well, if you see the chalk mark, you’ve either come back before the cop and are about to leave; or you already have a ticket on your windshield.
If the camera catches you in the intersection on a red light, you are in the act of committing the offense. When a traffic cop chalks your car, you are legally parked.
It would be hilarious if this was actually the ruling. A city like Chicago would probably go BK if they had to repay all these “chalk” tickets.
I’ll let you legal eagles debate the merits of this, but can we extend this to red light cameras somehow? Shit’s not fair - absent policing at its best and revenue generator at its worst
you’re smarter than that. biden isnt getting my vote in the primary either.
You mean those aren’t real??? Equal parts disappointment and curiosity as to how much trouble the Viper one would be to actually make. At least we’ll always have Zingers, even if they never ran, at least they exist.
But...but, the i3 is physically a bigger car and has a much better interior! :D
Also I think it was edmunds.
Remember, if you a buy Yugo, it’ll very quickly go from a “ha ha” purchase to an “oh gods” purchase.
how she would avoid becoming a victim of misogyny and insult- mongering
