Prorated fines would be class warfare
The letter “Prorate vehicle fines based on income” [Just Sayin’, Feb. 17] was another example of class warfare.
The writer states that “parking and moving violations” should be based on individual wealth or income, and that a $25 parking ticket is significantly more costly to someone earning $25,000 than someone earning $500,000.
What’s next, my grocery bill should be higher because I make more money? Should I be charged more for my movie theater ticket or my garage spot or rent?
If a $25 fine for parking illegally affects someone more, then that person should be more careful.
The idea of charging a wealthy person more smacks of envy.
