Asmodeus: I approve of the ban
$80 is a joke though. Should at least be $150
I disagree, but then again, I disagree with the entire 'set fine for all' system. Personally I believe fines should have a base rate, with a percentage added on based on your income in the last financial year. For you, $80 may be a joke. For a student who gets $150 a week living cost allowance, or that guy working for minimum wage, it can mean a lot more.
I know some people see that as encouraging people on lower incomes to break the law more, but personally I see it the other way, that it forces the rich people to actually pay notice when they actually have to pay a sum that means something to them.
