dmvletter.jpgSo my friend Scott who I’m staying with in SF earned a few speeding tickets recently. You might expect a formal warning from the Department of Motor Vehicles. Or you might expect a letter like this one to come from a disappointed parent (if you were still in high school). But this letter originating from a government agency with the tone, the language of “we,” the feigned concern for personal betterment, the use of ALL CAPS… it’s just plain weird.

I got $90 in parking tickets this morning for apparently parking on the wrong curb – if they had left me something like this on my windshield, it would have at least had some entertainment value.

    They have an interesting view of correlation. Apparently it is not the actual crashes or violations that are the problem; it’s having these things on your record that puts one at a greater risk.

    So remember kids, drive safely, but if you can’t, at least don’t get caught.

    Otherwise, you’ll be a danger!
