I got a speeding ticket in february, plead Not Guilty, got nervous in court and failed to mention I was speeding on my way to a building that may be on fire, and got found guilty and fined $175. I just got home from vacation and found a notice from the DMV that I owe $300 in a "Driver Responsibility Asessment" for accumulating 6 points in 18 months (this one ticket was 6 points), in addition to any fines for the guilty finding. My license and "privilege" to drive in NY will be suspended if I don't pay minimum $100 by 4/27. So I'm wondering... Do you guys find $475 in penalties for speeding excessive? If not, in what ways can I screw the state as much as possible? If I still worked in Manhattan, I'd be packing my bags and heading to the other side, the non-NY suburbs... But I'm stuck here for a while and not sure if I really want to say "F it" to my license. I would like to find ways to screw with the state. As a citizen, I have a right to call my congressmen, governor, etc. So I'm looking for ways I can maybe call the governor everyday and demand he refund my fine, or things like that, that will be like a stick up thier butts. I know I'm only one man, so if I can find an organization that will throw parties like this, that wo0uld be cool too. I'm not advocating anarchy, but this fine is ridiculous in my opinion.
