    Default Driving in America is so fucking shit!

    Yes you get fined for turning left to drive into a private property!





    Plus pedestrians have to pay a jaywalking fine! Including when the pedestrian crossing is on red





    Land of the Free? No it's NOT!

    Y?
    I have common sense when it comes to crossing the road, specially in a dual carriageway which I have crossed several times.

    Fines are nothing but revenue making scam! Back in the 1920's many people walked on the road amongst the traffic! Even South Asian countries like India and Bangladesh, people walk on the road to cross.

    A lot of people don't though, and car drivers can be held liable for injuries to stupid people who walk out in front of you.

    Yeah, but this ain't India or Bangladesh, although I agree that fines are often used just to make money, especially the worst of them all, parking fines and fake parking fines (also known as Parking Charge Notices).

    Well there are dash cams which can save the drivers arse. More and more people are using it.
