Exclamation Please Pay This Surcharge So We Can Afford To Write More Tickets

NMA Article: Please Pay This Surcharge So We Can Afford To Write More Tickets

cash100s

According to the New Jersey Courier Post, a New Jersey state legislator wants drivers to pay for increased police patrols:


Sen. Jeff Van Drew, D-Cape May, is proposing a $40 surcharge on all motor vehicle violations and using the money — estimated at $160 million — to help municipalities pay for police.


Half of the money would pay for the State Police Rural Patrol Program, which provides full-time and part-time police response to 89 small towns across New Jersey. The other half would be distributed proportionally among municipalities that have with full-time police departments.


New Jersey towns are so excited about the possibility of extra cash that they are “rallying”:


Representatives from some of the affected towns, and the New Jersey State League of Municipalities, will rally today in Buena Vista Township, Atlantic County, in support of Van Drew’s bill, S-1976.


And Van Drew wants that cash so bad he even has a backup plan:


As a backup plan, Van Drew said he intends to press the Governor’s Office and Treasury Department officials to let local governments keep the money paid on tickets and violations levied by the State Police in their rural towns. That money now goes to the state to help support the cost of the State Police.


If you read the article, you’ll notice that safety is not mentioned once. Not even in passing.


Their intentions are not disguised, they simply want more money from drivers.
