It gets old hearing about how they "don't have the money". Well, just where in the hell is all this money going? These public servants should give a full accounting of every dime spent. Twenty five dollars per car registered is a hell of a lot of money.

hmmm . Ever wonder where the money for all those Robert Park cameras in the bathrooms came from ? Or the expensive computers for the police AND the ultra expensive carry cases ? Or the police cellphones that go unused ? I hear that mopeds are charged $25.00 for "safety" reasons ? 200 pounds versus two tons , very fair . I wonder what the "fine" is for not buying a city issued unconstitutional plate is ? Do they impound the moped into a private impound lot left out in the weather where it may be damaged ?

U.S. says Indiana is lax on drunken driving, can't spend $40m on roads

WASHINGTON — Federal officials are telling Indiana it can't spend $40.4 million of highway funding to build or repair roads and bridges this year because the state has failed to comply with U.S. mandates to combat drunken driving.

The money, which represents 5 percent of $807 million dollars Indiana receives from Washington for highway and surface transportation programs this year, would instead have to be spent on anti-drunk driving programs or highway safety improvements because Indiana's open container law and its penalty for repeat drunken driving offenders don't pass muster. But Indiana's open container law hasn't changed since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration certified Indiana was in compliance in 2005.

"The issue here is that we were told we were in compliance," said Indiana Department of Transportation spokesman Will Wingfield. "I think it's reasonable that, since we were previously found to be in compliance, that we be given the opportunity to rectify this before there are any repercussions."

Indiana is one of fourteen states recently found to fall short of federal requirements to reduce drunken driving, after Congress updated federal highway spending programs last year. Nineteen states had previously been told their laws weren't sufficient, potentially bringing the total of noncompliant states to 33 once final determinations are made on the 14 states. If upheld for all the states, a combined $539 million would be diverted from states' construction funds to drunken driving programs or highway safety improvement projects.

"We've been concerned about this when it suddenly appeared that somehow the application of this was being tightened dramatically," said Jack Basso, chief operating officer of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials. "Probably they are within their authority. The question is, is it really achieving the spirit of the law?"

The $40.4 million of Indiana funds that would be diverted is surpassed only by California ($70.5 million) and North Carolina ($44 million).

Remember the old Andy Griffith show ? Barney set up a Checkpoint Chickie to catch speeders . The feds want the military , I mean LED to step up the harassment and have more "routine checkpoints " to steal more from the people . The law says if you are driving a vehicle while "impaired" and are found guilty , then the vehicle used in committing the crime can be taken and sold at auction. Even if you don't own it , you still have to pay it off .They want everyone to be in debt . You've heard it for decades > passing debt to our children . There is no debt . you been scammed by the Rothchild's . either declare a war on "them" or remain slaves and your children too forever .
