This is just another way for the State to get their money. If they can't tax you to death they will just get you some other way.

This is why they call it the People's Republic of California.

How are some of those fines even constitutional, I know VA tries to get away with massive fines and most of them had to be reduced because the punishment far outpaced the crime (I think they capped all fines at $500)

My CA registration renewal bill just came and they want $764. Increased sales and income taxes, high registration fees, expensive car insurance. I really need to reevaluate whether the benefits of of living in this state are worth the costs.
