Less sense, more dollars

Editor:

To most of us residing here on the West Coast, we know that BC stands for British Columbia, but for visitors, they frequently believe it’s an abbreviation for Bring Cash.

It would seem to me that if drivers were to use more CS – Common Sense – there would be less of a need to BC.

For example, the first time a driver is caught using a mobile phone to text or talk while driving, it would simply be a matter of handing over their mobile phone, which they could collect 24 hours later from the police station.

Don’t forget to BC. The amount due would be $167, plus late fees if you arrive after 24 hours. BC for parking, as there may be a long wait.

Should you continue to drive without using CS, and you have the misfortune to get caught again using your mobile phone, you will hand over your mobile device for one week. There will be a flat storage rate of $250.

When you go to the police station to pick it up, BC. There will be an extra shipping and handling charge that has to be paid by money order in advance, if by chance, you were just passing through town when you were caught.

Should there be a third offence, you can kiss that device goodbye, and the police force is not responsible for any late fees or charges associated with your cellphone plan.
