Creative Fines

Posted on Wed, Feb 18, 2009 at 12:55 PM

I have recently moved to Halifax and I am having no luck finding a job but all kinds of luck finding parking tickets on my fucking windshield.

I'm not sure how many ticket gophers the city of Halifax employees but they are quick and idiotic. A terrible characteristic combo. I was the only car in a 40 car parking lot last night and I got a fine. 1 car, 39 vacant spaces and I got a fine. Idiots. So, here is my idea - instead of dropping off wads of cash at town hall on semi-warranted fines I suggest spending fines at local businesses. A simple stimulus plan that would benefit the local economy and may produce jobs. Here is the system - businesses either support it or don't, ones that do get a stamp with an ID number and use it when people spend 75% of their fine in their shop to make it legit. Why 75% of the fine? To make it more enticing for people to spend at shops and not drop off money to city hall that does not fix pot holes but pays for gophers to drive around like lazy shits while I can't get a fucking job!!!!!! Just an idea. PS - I will never, ever pay these parking fines unless this system is used. haha.
