New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo
By Davy V.
New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that during a four day "crackdown", from November 14th through the 18th, New York State Police issued more than 200 tickets to motorists who violated the Move Over Law.
That's the newest scam, sorry, "law", that New York State has adopted as another way to generate even more income from hard working taxpayers.
And at a whopping $275.00 fine (not to mention 3 points on your license), that means that in just 4 days, New York State robbed taxpayers of more than $40,000.
I don't know about you, but if you live in New York State, or any other state where the Move Over Law has been enacted, it's one of the most dangerous laws on the books.
The law forces motorists to many times make dangerous split second decisions to switch lanes when they see a police cruiser on the side of the road, especially a busy highway.
I myself can think of several instances where someone has been forced to switch lanes without even looking over, out of fear of getting fined, and as a result have almost crashed into me.
Some of those times I've had my children in the car.
But Governor Cuomo doesn't give two shits about that.
He only cares about keeping that money coming in.
