That’s right! Add the inability to get speeding tickets to the long list of perks that our entitled lawmakers get while “serving the public”.
The excuse of “Serving the Public” that all politicians use is such a crock of shit! All politicians are only out to serve their own interests, not that of the public, unless the “public” is cramming $100 bills into the lawmaker’s pockets.
Washington state legislators are legally able to speed, without fear of getting a ticket, because merely pulling over these jackasses might keep them from casting a vote? That’s complete bullshit! Either they need to leave early enough to make the vote, or they don’t vote, but these corrupt and self-serving assholes shouldn’t be allowed to break the law, without fear of punishment!
Washington state legislators headed to work can’t get speeding tickets — or so says the Washington State Patrol and at least one local police department.
A spokesman for WSP says Washington lawmakers are constitutionally protected from receiving noncriminal traffic tickets during a legislative session, as well as 15 days before. A spokeswoman says The Tacoma Police Department abides by a similar policy.
State Patrol spokesman Bob Calkins says the privilege not only applies to moving violations near the state Capitol in Olympia, but potentially anywhere in the state.
The logic? Detaining lawmakers on the road — even for the time it takes to issue them a speeding ticket — may delay them from getting to the Capitol to vote.
