In Virginia, law enforcement officers have been placing tickets on cars with expired inspection stickers as the cars sat at the shop awaiting inspection. The whole thing was absurd, but luckily, the The Washington Post reports, the nonsense has come to an end.
Last fall, we told you the story of Bruce Redwine, the shop owner who grew tired of officials ticketing his customers’ cars as they awaited inspection. He grew so tired, in fact, that he snatched a ticket out of an officer’s hand, an action for which he was arrested and booked. It was a big mess, but one that hopefully will never happen again thanks to a new bill.
