Thoughts Without Words: L.A. Red Light Camera Fines are "Voluntary"

This one would upset me simply because I have been "caught" by a red camera. I didn't fight it but watching the video it would have been interesting to see what would have happened. I did pay the fine and about a year later our city has gotten rid of all of the red light cameras.

So in L.A., it has come out that all of the fines people have paid are "voluntary".
The tickets are part of a "voluntary payment program," without sanctions for those who fail to submit fines, said Richard M. Tefank, executive director of the city's Board of Police Commissioners. 
"The consequence is somebody calling you from one of these collection agencies and saying 'pay up.' And that's it," said committee member and Councilman Bill Rosendahl. "There's no real penalty in terms of your driver's license or any other consequences if you don't pay."
Wow...just wow.

Right Now: Summer School done

I haven't postes in awhile cause I have been enjoying my summer school class. This might have been my favorite summer school class ever.  Well it's done and now we have 3 weeks off.

Our school has had an exciting summer as well, but I will get into that later. That's it for now.
