Reduce Fines Levied on Residents, Local Businesses, Visitors and Motorists

Email This Proposal to Gov't Officials, Chamber of Comm., Trade Assoc., Small Businesses, Other Interested Persons

All too often towns believe they have to increase their enforcement of statutes, rules, regulations, signs and meters by hiring expensive enforcement personnel to issue tickets whenever justified under law and even when not truly justified. In this way, the town can get additional revenues sorely needed by it pay for the added enforcement personnel, the bicycles and vehicles they use, the courts, judges, clerks and lawyers involved, and to cover the loss of revenues when victims of this excessive enforcement policy decide not to avail themselves of any further town hospitality. Hopefully, the revenues are being obtained in an amount exceeding the cost of their production, but the problem is that the town is losing the real revenues, and the town is further losing through a deterioration of the quality of life for its residents and small businesses. You will readily note that the impact of this enforcement policy does not generally fall on the major retailers located in or near the town. But it is just these major corporations that owe substantial amounts of money as damages to various persons injured by their illegal activities, and the town's money-raising activities should be directed to these major corporations, to enable the town's residents and small businesses to obtain the protection they deserve under law.
