Here's today's civics lesson in a nutshell:
Park illegally, and you're likely to get a ticket that'll cost you 25 bucks. Don't pay up, and you'll owe even more when you're finally caught.
Seems simple. But not to local attorney David Mour. He says because state law requires cities to send certified letters to delinquent offenders -and Louisville only use first class mail -- then no one should have to pay any parking fines.
Is this the best he can come up with? Wow! What a morally and ethically bankrupt argument!
What's really amusing about this is that Mr. Mour himself has ten outstanding, unpaid tickets. Now, I might buy a sad story about one ticket being blown off a windshield and one letter getting lost in the mail. But what are the odds it happened ten consecutive times?
Mr. Mour is the poster boy for those who have no problem breaking the parking laws, no problem putting their wants ahead of other people's needs, as long as they can get away with it on a technicality.
But this is a case where being technically correct has absolutely nothing to do with being right.
And anyone who buys into Mr. Mour's nonsense should get the boot.
I'm Bill Lamb, and that's my Point of View.
