It's Not About Safety, It's About Power
Washington D.C. cops are now arresting people who are caught driving with expired tags. Does forgetting to pay your yearly protection money "tag fee" constitute a threat to public safety, or merely to authority?
That's a rhetorical question.
Maybe next they can start seizing the cars through civil asset forfeiture too. You know, for more "safety".
