This thread isn't goin to be so much a "FTP" stint, rather "what are my rights?" (i know it's hard to hold back the laughter when people mention the word "rights", so go on and have a chuckle)
I got nailed tonight for not having insurance on my truck.
a fine for 575 bucks and to boot..yup, you guessed it- a fuckin tow bill.
Now, here's the deal -> I've got this customer of whom graces me with his presence from time to time, in ever such an irregular fashion.
he belongs to ...well, for lack of better words, i'll say a "group" of people who get away with a lot of things you and i don't, simply because they have a "permit" for rights, that you and i should have, but aren't told of by the new world order of wich we've grown up in.
He informed me (amongst many topics) just the other day, that providing my truck's not being used for COMMERCIAL use, i don't have to insure my vehicle....sure it's a wise decision, but not a neccessity.
This isn't some rule that they've formed. apparently it's all there in the fine print amongst law transcripts, MVA info, etc.
Also , another thing he informed me of is that, technically your vehicle isn't even yours. when you go to register a vehicle, it becomes property of the MV Dept. out of Victoria and that they give you the "privellege" to drive the vehicle you've just sweat your sack of to afford.......so having said that, if it's technically "THEIR" vehicle, shouldn't also be "THEIR" responsibility to make sure it's insured?
as the pig said "The Onus is on YOU, sir"
Hey! I'm "innocent until proven guilty"....at least that's what i'm told, and the last time i checked i didn't live in scotland.
Just for conversation's sake, this pig also said to me "you should be thankful this happened to you in BC. In Alb. you'd get an immediat 60 days in jail! "
Oh well! fuck me! shouldn't i just be a gleem of joy right now then? I guess what it really comes down to, is that in ALB, there's more of a value on a person's life, should they find some guy running around without insurance.
BC law must be just as lazy a faire as the pot smoking pigs we've got around here.
So, if any of you guys know that what my rights are, i'd like to hear about it.....constructive input would be a bonus too.
