I had an appeal yesterday in Barnstable DC for 79 in a 55. I'm not crossing out the $25 an said so to Judge Reardon because I believe it's altering a citation, I'll wait til the new citations come out. Judge Reardon agreed, found the guy responsible :) ,!
O.K. so I'm a little confused.............................. :-k

The RMV Promulgates via a July 16th letter, the new $50 surcharge (Amendment to MGL CH.90 s.20). And then there is a LEAPS notice transmitted twice (x2) over a 48 hour period. HOWEVER.................

You decide to utilize some cliche "altering a citation" and Judge Riordan/Reardon for some unknown reason decides that term trips his trigger too. Jesus! I honestly don't know why we (cops) continually try to make laws, instead of enforcing them! You don't want to be a "tax collector" for the state? Then don't write the "V" in the first place!
I'm sorry but there is quite a bit of irony in your statements.
:shock:

Just for the Record:

"Section 226 of the Commonwealth's FY 2004 budget (Chapter 26 of the Acts of 2003)

"there shall be a surcharge of $50 on a fine assessed against a person convicted or found responsible of a violation of section 17 or a violation of a special regulation lawfully made under the authority of section 18."

This increased surcharge became effective July 1, 2003. The letter from the RMV has an attached example of how to cross out $25 and write $50 (very helpful) In addition, if you have any questions you are encouraged to call the Registry of Motor Vehicles LEGAL Department @ (617) 351-9951

C.90 should not be a revenue enhancing tool for the Commonwealth. It is there to teach speeders and other snapperheads the error of their ways. A good $50 V or warning should suffice. You know they do have a warning box to check on there as well. Hammering a guy for $300 for speeding on the Pike or 495 is counterproductive when we are trying to be a kinder, gentler police force.

I can see why they would just drive on by now with all the nitwit cops who excessively fine motorists.
You really take the cake with this one. "revenue enhancing tool" vs. "teach speeders"& "snapperheads". What better way to give someone a lesson, than a fine in proportion to their degree of violation? Maybe they'll "learn" before they hurt/kill someone. Believe me when I tell you I give 80% warnings to every speeder I stop. The other 20% go to those with >20 mph over, shit attitude+shit history=habitual menace, etc.

Of course I'll save you the effort in responding with comments about 13 & 14th graders and the other inflammatory crap you fling. Suffice to say you DO NOT enforce CH.90, and I question why you diss all us "nitwit cops" who do?

I once again find myself questioning why I get so bummed by your diatribes, yet keep coming back to the same conclusion; You can't help shitting on somebody or some whole group of people to make yourself feel better.
:G: :A!: :wm:

MPD61, let me guess you must be a Democrat and voted for Mr. (Taxachusetts) Dukakis. Stay confused! :?

p.s. I don't need a lecture, but you can screw the general public as much as you want, I'll go after the dirtballs. :wink:
Actually I'm a Pro-Choice. Pro-gun, Pro-MSP, Republican who was chasing soviet submarines and missed being able to vote for/against Dukakis.
I am a warhawk, anti-dove, save-the-whales, nuke-the-koreans, give to veterans and special olympics, born-in-the USA mother!

And I DON'T make up my own rules to appease some internal struggle-with-my-conscience milque-toast issue like "ooooh I don't want to spank this poor citizen for an extra $25 after I already nailed him for ten (10) times that amount" Give me a break!

Seriously mgb,
Have fun nailing those dirtbags on the Cape! (Be Safe)
:wink:

MPD61 - Well Excuuuse Me! I'm new to Masscops, I'll have to check your previous posts. I'm a Republican as well, but maybe a little more conservative (I'm Pro-Life) and although my family has been Navy, I'm a Vietnam-Era ARMYveteran.
Well..................Alright!
At least you're not some ex-USAF fly-pussy who sat in a gopher hole or guarded a B-52 during the 70's
:FM:

Welcome to the fold!!!
:lol:
