Clickin on the link says I gotta sign up and stuff... which I really don't feel like doing. But on the same note, one feller in my home area, bought a new truck with quarters.

thats an idea....if we could coordinate a nation wide policy of paying all trivial fines in pennies, it could be the most hillarious act of civil dis-obedience ever. Only i dont think its dis-obedient to pay in pennies. w/e its still funny

thats funny... only problem I see is that the point he is trying to prove will be at the expense of others that have to count all of those pennies... and have to deal with situation when they are just clerks doing their job.. its like a punishment for him... now if the cop had to pay it then it would be different...
.... guess he wouldn't have a point to prove if he woulda just bought a new $6 headlight....

It's not so hard to count pennies, just use a counting machine. All banks have them, and they wrap the coins too.

I see your point, but the counter point would be that it is his or her job to receive fines and count them. We are paying them to do just that. As long as it's legal tender.

And with that, it's off to the Issues with this thread.
