As I told some of you, I received a reckless driving charge in Richmond, VA last year.

I lost my car and job because of it and was ordered by a judge to pay a $1035 fine plus $85 to have my license re-instated. And the worst thing about all this was this was my first ticket ever!!!!!

I almost passed out in the court when I heard the fine.

I seriously felt like the police were giving me unfair treatment and I was so pissed I actually thought about jumping up on that high desk and punching the judge right in his fat face!

Did I pay? Hell no! I just said fuck driving and fuck the government.

Well finally, the governor that I voted for has done me a favor...

Today, Virginia State lawmakers sign a bill to abolish what many Virginia residents are calling "excessive" and "abusive" fees for reckless driving. The law also states that what is defined as "reckless driving" in the state has become too broad of a definition and needs to be re-examined to determine what exactly "reckless driving" is.

All who paid these outlandish fees are getting refunded.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! Thank you God!!!!!! Now I'll finally go to the DMV and get my L's back!
