    What is going on with my bankrupt state and nation? Today I really felt these crooks are running a banana republic. Anything goes.

    I got an electronic traffic ticket in mail that cannot be contested or plea bargained. Guess the amount? $355. Jumping Red Light on Main Street by 0.2 secs. Not 2 seconds but 0.2 seconds.

    How can that even prove an intent to disrupt law+order, at most if any, maybe, poor judgement. But I have no right to contest and I am fined to the maximum extent. Declared Guilty without trial and sentenced without hearing.

    Are you in the States?

    Five will get you 10 that citation is a civil infraction, not a criminal one. The rules are vastly different for the two.

    I think the cameras are absurd, too, but you're barking up the wrong tree here.

    Also, people who compare the States, or any developed nation, to a banana republic should really be forced to spend some time in the latter.
