Kansas police have found a new source of revenue for which to fill their coffers, they're aggressively ticketing people $125 for "illegally" warming up their cars.
ROELAND PARK, Kan. - A split second decision you make in the morning might cost you a $125 ticket.
You see, citizen, you can't be trusted to manage risk with your own property. To help keep you from being robbed, we are going to rob you of $125 for risking being robbed.
If you do the math, this one cop's two hour ticketing spree brought in $1125, or $562.5 dollars an hour. That's an hourly take around three times that of a high paid brain surgeon.
Of course, rather than cure people of horrible diseases, something which actually creates value for society, the police are shaking people down for taking minor risks with their own property.
