So... I get a new (to me) car. Do the legal thing and get a trip permit, place in back window as instructed. I've now gotten 2 parking tickets for not displaying proper registration. In addition to that, I got pulled over this morning for having expired tags and invalid license. I have a license and a trip permit. Officer gives me a $287 ticket for "following too close". Combine this with a speeding ticket (seperate incident and I deserved it) and my monthly fuel expenses, I would have brought home more money this month if I stayed home and collected unemployment. Like literally, I did the math.
