Daughter #2 received a traffic citation. $120. She deserved it.
Next receives a notice of suspended license. $70.
Received notice that remedial driving class is required. $100.
Then I get a notice that one of my cars has been “randomly” selected to have its insurance coverage checked. Could I please provide proof of coverage? Guess which car they picked. No problem for me, but you can be sure that she’d have received a hefty fine had I answered negatively.
It seems clear that someone in the secretary of state’s office has taken a personal interest in my family. Anonymous, faceless, with petty powers to harass and annoy. A lowly minion with a comfortable pension, working in a financially incompetent state.
I don’t dispute anything they’ve done, it’s all perfectly legal. But is it really necessary to run up the score? Do we require zero tolerance simply because databases are so easily checked?
