You know what they say, you get what you vote for.
Residents of one Democrat majority city in Michigan are finding out that their elected officials really don’t care how they raise money to cover a major financial slump there.
The city of Roseville, Michigan enacted an ordinance which makes it illegal for citizens to leave their running cars unattended, even if it’s done on their own property.
This week it’s forecast temperatures will drop to 17 degrees in Roseville, with a high of 24. But that doesn’t mean you can warm up your car in your driveway as one unfortunate resident found out.
Taylor Trupiano was getting ready to head to work at Best Buy when he went out and started his car to warm it up. The vehicle was in his driveway. Trupiano then went back inside his home for 7-8 minutes. It’s something a lot of Michiganers do in the winter, he told WXYZ Detroit.
When Trupiano came back out, there was a $128 ticket on his windshield. The ticket was for leaving his car running unattended… In his driveway.
“I thought it was some kind of joke at first, and then I was thrown back by it,” he said. “I was really surprised.”
The ticket was for leaving the keys in the ignition with the motor running and no one around. Trupiano said he was only doing something many people in Michigan do during the winter.
“I was in and out in probably about 7-8 minutes,” he added. “So in that amount of time he ran up here, gave me a ticket and by the time I got out he was nowhere to be seen.”
Frustrated with the ticket, he posted a photo on Facebook where he racked up thousands of comments and shares.
The Roseville Police Department ticket comes with a $128 fine. There is no state law against leaving your car turned on and unattended, but dozens of cities across Michigan have local ordinances.
Trupiano went on to say, “Unattended car? I’ve done this every day for seven years. Every person warms up their car. We live in Michigan.”
Roseville officials say that the ordinance was put into place because 5-10 cars are stolen each Winter. Which is a load of horse manure, of course. It’s all about the money Dems try to extract from our a$$es.
WGN TV covered the story. Watch.
Trupiano posted the ticket to his Facebook page where it quickly went viral.
While we feel his pain over the ticket, the blame doesn’t really go to the officer handing it out, it goes to the idiot Dem politicians who made bad financial decisions.
Democrats enacted the ordinance that makes warming up cars a ticketable offense. The police are just following orders from their political overlords to raise money for their financially ailing city.
It’s kind of like the red light camera scam. Both are revenue generating methods put into effect by crooked politicians.
The city of Roseville is so strapped for cash, they’ve cut the police budget by $3 million since 2011. Who owns that? Yeah, Democrats do.
I would tell Trupiano to contact his Congressman, but he’s a Dem, too. He’d probably just raise the amount of the ticket.
Moral to the story? If you want to warm up your car in Winter & not get fined for it, don’t vote Democrat.
