SO THE CITY OF HOUSTON wants Harris County to go after vehicle owners who haven’t paid red light camera tickets, but the city is unwilling to pay county toll fines incurred by drivers of city cars (via the Chron’s James Pinkerton):
“Harris Co. have (sic) been sending individual tickets without pictures (no proof) and expecting someone to pay,” finance department employee Al Owens wrote. “That someone would be the driver and not the City of Houston. The City of Houston is not responsible for tickets incurred by employees with city vehicles.”
As is often the case when government is involved, there are two standards: one the political class foists on average citizens, and one the political class saves for itself.
