Cleverness is its own reward punishment.
A D.C.-area man, who, in an attempt at humor dared get a personalized license plate reading “NO-TAGS,” has been rewarded with $20,000 in traffic tickets, reports NBCwashington.com.
Jovial Redskins fan Danny White alleges he gets the bill whenever police come across a car without a license plate and write “No Tags” on the ticket.
White says he spends one day every few months hacking and slashing at the red tape his joke, and government bureaucracy, has created.
His driving record is so maimed by the wrongful tickets he can’t get his license or registration renewed, reports Channel 4.
I’m still trying to get ParkAtlanta to admit they double-ticketed me in August 2011, so I feel his pain.
The DMV, despite realizing they are wasting thousands of taxpayer dollars mailing tickets to the wrong motorist, seems unwilling to fix their computer system. Instead, they want to void the “confusing” tag White’s had for 25 years and make him pay for another one.
We don’t always get the type of government we overpay for.
