    I've read on more then one occasion of some idiot getting pulled over for illegally being in a car pull lane get arrested for hopping right back into the car pull lane. The reasoning is always the same; They already paid the fine so they might as well enjoy the perk. They don't get that the fine isn't intended to be a payment to cover that activity but a disincentive designed to make you NOT do it. If the fine doesn't convince you to obey the law then they will see if getting arrested will.

    Romney's behavior demonstrates that he has no idea why we have fines in the first place and makes him supremely unfit to hold any elected office.
