garbage trucks (and cars)

I've heard that in Seattle, the police can give you a ticket for not having a little garbage bag in your car. The goal is to cut down on littering and the reasoning is that without a receptacle, all your garbage will be going out the window.

The interior of of many of my friends' cars is covered with garbage. I wonder if the police would overlook the missing bag in such cases.

Or is that a really control-freak kind of a law? What's next, if you're caught without your Little Red Book, you go to jail?

... fine people for not having any money.

On the Internet, anyone can accuse you of being a dog.

I remember learning that in drivers ed. Is it bullshit? Apperantly not.

It's probably one of those rules that you would get a ticket for only if you pissed the cop off.

It's the entire State. (none / 0) (#5)
