Speed kills — your wallet

Ted Rall has it exactly right. It’s ridiculous how state legislatures have put together the combination of fines for speeding itself, fines for points on your license (more and more states have gone to a point system), fines for getting your license reinstated when you get too many points, and so forth.

Despite these legislatures’ public safety cries, it’s really a massive hidden tax.
