There seems to be a lot of discussion pertaining to some tickets written to Sonny Maley on his riding lawn mower and another to a person on a bicycle for not having a license tag light.
I’m all for enforcing the law, but is our city coffers so broke that they have to resort to ticketing people on bicycles and mowers. Come on, a warning ticket could, and should, have been issued, and the persons given a chance to rectify the infractions.
Then, if it wasn’t taken care of in the specified amount of time, then let the ticket stand. A lot of people I see stopped can’t feed their children, pay rent or utilities. So do the children go hungry and cold by having hundreds of dollars in fines to pay?
