and the headache just gets worse!

well the saga contiues to add up....
Crystal spent the day on the phone, getting insurance,
borrowing the money to get the car out of impound,
and the money to pay the "fine". She wants to close this door and move on, with insurance.
Well the "LAW" has other idea's about this.
Seems a police officer has up to 48 hours to "put in his report" (how come a medical profesional is required to document with in 3 hours so as the facts are fresh in their minds?) This means if your car is impounded they have at least 48 hours to "process" it. At 150 dollars a day you better hope you do not get impounded on a Thursday. They do charge for weekends but are only open 8-5 Monday-Friday!!
To make it even better to get out of impound they can charge you the worth of the vehicle if they so desire. IF you are found guilty and non-compliant they may "arrest" your VEHICLE for 30 days!!!

So for those "law abiding" citizens who get pulled over and feel "rushed" to take care of the issue....DONT!!! it wont really matter for at least 48 hours anyway and then you will continue to be punished even after you have "complied" to their "law". I wonder again why it is that they preach consistancy and fairness?????? reality

Wow, this situation is really escalating out of control. Everyone is making money on this one, the tow truck driver, the impound lot, the city, the state, and of course the insurance company. The sad thing is that if it had been anyone of us, instead of two young people in a car with babies, we would have most likely recieved a citation and sent on our way. We talked about this at the campfire last night, several people said that they have been stopped, showed the trooper an outdated insurance card, was told to make sure they carry a current copy of the card and sent ontheir way. It sounds to me like we had a little over zealous cop that was having a bad day.
