Plausible

Good ideas are worth spreading.

Income based traffic fines

A fine is intended to deter repeat behavior. It must be high enough to hurt, but not so high as to hurt terribly. There are people who go to jail for speeding tickets, due to inability to pay. Great system, eh?

  1. I am always pleased as punch when this kind of stuff is accounted for.

    What do you think about other scaleable justice issues though? Some people argued that one reason to give up on prosecuting Spitzer for his whorin' was that he had already been punished more thoroughly than most criminals. He lost the governership. All the same, it gives off a whiff of the rich and powerful being above the law.
