Politicians in Colorado are given "Invisible" license plates.


http://benswann.com/politicians-given-invisible-license-plates-that-make-them-immune-to-traffic-laws/


Although politicians are “public servants,” they often think they are above the law.

And in Colorado, they actually are above the law.

Colorado lawmakers do not have to follow traffic laws, as they are exempt from speeding and parking tickets. The legislators are issued special license plates that are “invisible” to both traffic cams and traffic tickets. Their specially-issued plates do not show up in the DMV database.

As reported by CBS Denver, “The plates issued to the 100 state lawmakers and representatives elected to serve Colorado are preventing them not only from receiving photo radar tickets but also collection notices from past due parking tickets.

The legislative plates are not entered into the Colorado DMV database, so when photo radar cameras catch these drivers speeding, they never received tickets. That’s because of a loophole that doesn’t allow the City of Denver to electronically cross-reference those plates with a home address.”


Sounds about right.

Thoughts?

It's the same way in D.C. I think they're exempt from speeding laws whenever congress is in session.
We're all alright!

I should be exempt from speeding everyday I work.

lol @ politics
Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

ALL HAIL CELESTIA

that's bullshit
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

So we're extending diplomatic immunity to all politicians now?

Evidently nothing. They tend to drive under the influence all the time, with all these lobbyists around.

Badum-tisch! Yay for unfunny political humour! I should write for those newspaper comics.

Now if only you could draw...

No seriously, I'd read your cartoons. Why can't you draw, Ben?!

If I were Coloradian I'd try to find out how those number plates work. Can't be impossible to fit those on your own wheels. Just some kind of coating probably. And since they're not-invisible to regular eyes, I doubt cops would notice too easily.

I am surprised this is actually legislation, but it's not like they would get into trouble otherwise. If a high ranking politician gets a ticket, he or she could easily pull some strings to get out of it. I would be surprised if politicians ever paid parking tickets and the like.

No penalty for DUI is ****ed up though.

What we need is more government. That would solve the problem.

Not sure if serious...or exaggerating...You are Rossenrot, after all...

OT:
So, why exactly did the citizens of Colorado vote these scumbags into office?

They've been caught up with enjoying Amendment 64.

If anything, politicians should have rights taken away so that you know only people who want to govern well will run.
Also, term limits for congress.

Politicians should get paid according to the current state of the economy. I can see those fools fixing their shit up pretty quickly that way.

Unless you're willing to hack into the dmv's database, you're not going to get those plates.

What a shit article. From the CBS source it links to, before everyone gets their panties in a bunch or starts talking about "invisible coating"

The legislative plates are not entered into the Colorado DMV database, so when photo radar cameras catch these drivers speeding, they never received tickets. That’s because of a loophole that doesn’t allow the City of Denver to electronically cross-reference those plates with a home address.

...


“Because the Department of Public Works relies on the DMV Database to contact people with unpaid parking tickets we are not able to contact legislators with unpaid parking tickets,” explained Denver Public Works spokesperson Emily Williams.

Williams agrees the net effect is that lawmakers can ignore the parking tickets without consequences.

“That’s true,” Williams said, “And it’s the glitch in the system”.

Williams says a result of the CBS4 Investigation, Denver has identified 16 legislative plates that have racked up a total of $2,100 in fines and penalties that were never paid.

“We recognize the problem with the system,” said Williams.


...


Several state lawmakers contacted CBS4 after the initial story about photo radar tickets aired last month and said they were in favor of abolishing the special license plates.



There doesn't appear to be any conspiracy here, just a flawed system.

Ya, that sounds like a great idea. That way when the economy is bad anyone with the brains to earn more in the private sector will leave and pay will be too low to attract anyone else. The economy will fix up plenty good then
