The reason for all these scams is the public’s acceptance of using the force of law to punish citizens whose actions could have violated the Rights of others instead of for violating the Rights of others.
Most of the time accidents do not result in the issuance of a citation to the at fault driver, the exceptions are when substance abuse occurs or when blatant disregard for speed was a factor. Most accidents do not involve these elements, they are cases of vehicles pulling out into traffic or turning out of traffic and the occasional rear end at a traffic signal.
This means that as a society we are fine with ignoring actions that actually result in an accident but want people punished (fined) who did not cause an accident or any harm to anyone.
We deserve the corruption inherent in our justice system because we do not demand that Law enforcement focus on actual persons who violate the Rights others, we have embraced the concept that “actions which might increase the likelihood of harming others” are a more important focus for Law Enforcement than real crime.
This is the precise definition of the “Nanny State” philosophy and it dominates all of our public institutions, all of it’s manifestations are destructive but none even comes close to the horrors we endure from this idea than in our Justice system.
Murderers walk, thieves walk, child molesters walk, rapists walk and gangs are free to terrorize indefinitely.
But don’t you dare drive with your tags expired, no seat-belt buckled, a headlight burned out or unaware of a yellow light trap lest you get all the authority of the State crashing down upon you.
Any people who spit on the concept of Justice will endure a society that is plagued by a lack of Justice and by extension Liberty.
