Video: CameraFRAUD on Coconino's Pursuit of the Jackson
We’ve warned you for a while that “All They Want To Do Is Take Your Money.” Now it appears that Coconino County wants to “take your twenty,” too.
Flustered county officials are upset that they’re having to process the influx of machine-generated tickets, while not getting to cover their own costs.
Since all of the money either goes to the vendor or to the State, the court is left holding the bag– and the overloaded docket of fraudulent tickets.
The solution? Charge an additional $20 to anyone who challenges or ignores the ticket. While we’re not sure the logistics of trying to enforce the twenty dollar surcharge on those who ignore the ticket (they would still have to be served under Arizona Rule 4), one thing is certain: It’s all about the money.
