Tinting on the Glass

My car failed inspection. It has tinting on the rear windshield. Apparently, the car had been in a wreck and rebuilt (hmmm, I should have bought the Carfax report). Anyway, I had to remove the tinting. This broke the rear defrost.

So, I had to make my car less safe to pass a safety inspection.

Of course, the purpose of regulation isn't to promote safety but to exercise power. The argument that compliance creates a hazard simply elicits blank stare.

If you were wondering how the tinting got there. Well, apparently, the car had been in a wreck and was rebuilt by a car enthusiast. The purpose of hyper regulation is to keep individuals from starting small businesses that recycle materials like wrecked cars.

Our government is sick.
