Brett Sanders is a perfect American, he loves carrying a gun and paying speeding fines late but this time, he went one step further and paid the late fine in pennies (coins).
“I was on my residential street when I got a ticket for going nine miles over the speed limit,”
“I thought it was unfair. I did not injure anyone, and I did not endanger anyone.”
“Not only am I [ticked] off about this ticket and paying with pennies to clog up the system, but I also want to protest the whole racket,”
Spokeswoman Dana Baird from The City of Frisco, Texas said the coins were counted using two machines and took staff around 3 hours to count.
“Sanders’ original fine was $79.90 and court costs were $132.10 for a total of $212.00”
“There was an overpayment of $7.81,” she said.
It is rumoured that Sanders told the city they could keep the change.
