Guy pays $212 in speeding fine with pennies, 22,000 pennies – Idiot or genius?

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.

  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
