NY lefties decriminalized bus fare jumping and now 25% of riders don’t pay. Gosh, who could have seen that coming?

So New Yorkers should stop paying taxes too…I bet Warren Wilhelm would be all for that…

The tollroad system in Houston is was scammed too. Seems you just pull up to the booth and say you have no money. They give you a sheet to sign promising to send in the money. Meanwhile the people with money get backed up waiting for the person to fill out the form.

Now they have the thing that takes your pic and sends the bill to your house. I don’t imagine those people are paying that bill either.

They use cameras now on the GWB in Dallas, too. A lot less hassle compared to before. Used to be if you were out of state and drove through they’d never send you a bill. I guess they figured no one would pay it anyway.

What’s hysterical is it’s faster to use the frontage roads along each side the freeway.

I used the left lane the last time I was in Houston. Still haven’t billed me. I used it outside of Austin
last month and immediately got a bill, which I paid. We bought our home two years ago and we get toll road bills from the previous owner and his kids every week. I guess they’re making a crapton of cash off the honest folks and don’t pursue the rest.

Everyone rides for free. When the transit system of NYC goes bust who will the dip shits blame?

They’re still using equipment that’s over 100 years old. They have a machine shop to make parts. Go figure.

I have to wonder about the three-quarters of people who are still paying.

I wonder if DA Cyrus Vance has ever been on a bus in his life.

As if NYC didn’t have enough fiscal issues as it is!

All the Democrats do is give money to deadbeats. Our tax money.

The big takeaway for me is that the thankless thugs represent 1% of the budget. So overall the folks paying bring it to a WHOPPING 4%. That city is so effed up.
