The government has found another way to milk the public of their hard earned cash.

Meanwhile government increases fines to boost their coffers even more.
Maximum fines imposed by magistrates are set to rise dramatically under new proposals for England and Wales. The highest maximum limits, for offences including motorway speeding, could increase from £2,500 to £10,000.
I’m waiting for the government to introduce a fine for anyone caught farting in public.
