New Study Shows Texting Bans May Make Roads Even More Dangerous

http://www.techdirt.com

This seems like a classic case of politicians not understanding unintended consequences. Politicians love to ban stuff, but they never take into account the actual response to those bans, and just assume that if the law bans something people will stop doing it. Instead, they may continue to do the action in an even less socially acceptable way -- and that can put a lot more people in danger.

Mass. Bureaucrats Fighting Over Who Can Hold Road Construction Signs

http://www.boston.com

The incident Tuesday was the latest flare-up in an increasingly tense dispute between the Boston Police Department and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation over the use of civilian flaggers at city construction sites overseen by the state.

State officials say they want to use civilian flaggers, allowed under a new state law, to save money; police in Boston and elsewhere, who can earn huge amounts of money working at construction sites, have argued that public safety is better served by having officers, rather than civilians, working the jobs.

Car Registration is a scam

http://donttreadonmike.wordpress.com

When they were done extorting our Christmas money out of us, they didn’t say “Thank You”, they said, “Congratulations!”………….”CONGRATULATIONS!?” As if we’re supposed to NOT feel dirty about what just happened but instead feel proud that we did our “civic duty!”

Dicks.
