Comments

Wait--enforcing the law is a tax hike? Seems like a typical soft on crime conservative complaint. Furthermore, Deval Patrick isn't governor yet, so no, I don't think he is behind it. This is your boy Romney at work. One can only wonder what Reed Hillman would have done.

However, if you do the math, this should be considered a tax cut (as if fines for breaking the law are "taxes"). Instead of having to issue 8 citations in eight hours to cover a quota, a trooper now only has to issue 6 citations to cover the 8 for 8 you mention. Fewer citations, less money. If a citation were now worth only .5 points, you might have a case.

You'll be able to buy that Porsche yet!
