I recently read a news item informing us, the downtrodden taxpayers, that we possibly could face the imposition of yet another tax. This has to do with TransLink’s plans for expansion.
After much thought, I came up with an idea that might raise the funds needed for expansion without hitting the taxpayer in the purse/wallet. I wish to suggest that law enforcement devote about six months to nabbing drivers who ignore stop signs, all over the province, but particularly on the Sunshine Coast. A hefty fine would be in order for a first offence and doubled for a second offence. Anything beyond that might include licence suspension.
All fines would be forwarded to TransLink. Those drivers on the Coast who obey stop signs with a full stop know that the majority of drivers today completely ignore the word stop.
If my plan were to be adopted, I visualize TransLink will have a huge cash surplus to fulfill their expansion plans and also a bit left over to provide bonuses for their hard-working staff. I rest my case.
