Man Ticketed for Stopping at Red Light

http://www.fox4now.com

When Murphy turned right off Lee Boulevard, almost immediately he ran into a red light...Murphy stopped at that red light, at the edge of an intersection, because he didn't want to run a red light...

While Murphy thought he was obeying the law, the officer cited him for breaking it. Instead of a warning, Rowe gave Murphy a $161 ticket for "improper stopping"

"I think it's very confusing," Murphy told us on June 19. "I think it's very foolish that someone gets a ticket for stopping at a red light."

Murphy snapped a photo of another person he says stopped at the same light.

Texas legislature accidentally makes license plates optional

http://www.thenewspaper.com

During an update to the state's driving laws, the Texas legislature inadvertently removed the penalty for driving without a license plate. What was formerly a $200 fine now has no penalty. The new law goes into effect on January 1, 2012, and they won't be able to update it until January of 2013.

The Attorney General is trying to claim that it's implied, but it doesn't look like he has any ground to stand on. http://www.chron.com/news/article/Lawmakers-error-omits-Texas-license-pl...

iPhone app helps users avoid parking tickets

http://www.vancouversun.com

Massive parking fines inspired one Australian man to create an iPhone app that lets users warn each other when parking officers are spotted lurking near their cars. Last year alone, he paid thousands of dollars in fines. The final straw came when he was ticketed in his own neighbourhood despite a parking permit that he pays hundreds of dollars for each year. The app lets users "sign in" and report sightings of parking officers with a single push of a button. Cartoon faces wearing a police cap then appear plotted on a map of the area, along with a notice thanking them.
