These politicians get more disgusting by the day. This new law shouldn't surprise me, but it does, and it should be repealed and those who voted for
it should be voted out.
Now, we all know oftentimes traffic laws and citations are purely for revenue, even though the stated and official reason is "safety." This law,
however, seems to suggest that lawmakers, in course of speeding (to make it to the legislature to pass a law that would exempt them from the ticket,
of course) are NOT a danger to other motorists and that THEIR speed is NOT potentially dangerous. Therefore, speed laws are NOT about safety unless
they apply to everyone universally (but we know laws for those in government/politics are different: ordinary citizens accidentally kills a person and
gets charged/convicted, a politician starts a war and causes thousands to die and gets re-elected). How can they spin this one?
A spokesman for WSP says Washington lawmakers are constitutionally protected from receiving noncriminal traffic tickets during a legislative
session, as well as 15 days before. Read more:
protected. Say what? That's in the state Constitution???
Oh yes, they have to get to work on time because they were out all night getting BJs from lobbyists to vote for the next piece of BS legislation.
Makes perfect sense.
The logic? Detaining lawmakers on the road -- even for the time it takes to issue them a speeding ticket -- may delay them from getting to the
Capitol to vote. Read more:
See! I knowed it already.
Late, Mr. Lawtician? You shoulda efn left earlier.
This crap is getting ridiculous and the government is getting out of hand.
Kind of like, who gives them the authority to vote for their own raises?
