    In a case of wanting justice, a man wiped out his son's inheritance for his quest to win a legal battle. For a $100 speeding ticket, Richard Keedwell spent $30,000. Yes, that amount for a speeding ticket case that could've been solved by paying it. His battle for justice started at what he claims is a speed camera's disfunction, causing it to clock him traveling 35mph in a 30mph zone in Worcester. This took place three years ago and that is how long the court case went on. Instead of paying the speeding ticket, he instead challenged the fine and...

    The space tourism firm XCOR Aerospace Inc. announced plans in 2008 to launch its private two-seat Lynx space plane. Lynx was expected to fly paying space tourists to an altitude of about 38 miles above Earth, where passengers would experience 90 seconds of weightlessness. The company first estimated flight tests would begin in 2010, with private flights to follow soon after. Many space tourists bought into XCOR's Lynx model for the chance to briefly experience weightlessness at the edge of space. Having paid XCOR $100,000 for a ticket, customer Nael Hamameh thought his flight would come as early as 2011,...

    A Michigan man is outraged after he was ticketed for heating up his car in his own driveway and then told by the police chief to drop dead after he complained to local media. Taylor Trupiano, who posts on Facebook under the name Nick Taylor, posted a photo of the $128 ticket last week, which he found on his windshield after leaving his car running and unattended in his driveway in Roseville. Lets all take a moment to thank officer dipst K. Keary for wasting the taxpayers money and giving me a ticket for warming up my car in my...

    If you havent paid your parking tickets you may soon have a face-to-face with the Barnacle. The yellow monstrosity, which latches on to the windshield and blocks the drivers view, rendering the car undriveable, has already begun replacing the parking boot in cities like Allentown, Pennsylvania, and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, as part of a 60-day trial that began Sept. 23. The peculiar device is more effective than the boot at immobilizing cars and is easier to install, Kevin Dougherty, president of the New York-based Barnacle Parking Enforcement, told Philly.com. The Barnacle an opaque piece of plastic held in place...

    Besides Gary Johnson, he means, right? Doesn’t he? Or was Carl Bernstein right that Weld, a Massachusetts centrist, would end up defecting from the ticket and trying to help Clinton down the stretch if he got spooked that a Trump presidency is a real possibility? He’s much more complimentary of Johnson in the clip below than the headline above would suggest, as you’ll see (the key line about Hillary comes near the very end), but it’s odd nonetheless for a candidate in one party to say that no one’s more qualified than a candidate from another. It’s not the only...

    Via Breitbart, the key bit below starts at 6:30. When he says “set the country on fire,” does he mean people literally setting things on fire in rage over how much they hate a Trump/Cruz ticket? Because I can sort of see that. Trump’s numbers are flaming garbage, as you know, but check out Cruz’s numbers from the same poll:What should we call that? Smoldering garbage? I’m a Cruz backer but I’m also under no illusion about how popular he is and isn’t among the general electorate. (Although the AP data here is from a poll of adults, not...

    The months and months of hype have paid off for Disney and Lucasfilm this afternoon, as theater chains began offering advance ticket sales for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which hits theaters two months from today on December 18. Perhaps a little too well, however. Legions of Star Wars fans immediately rushed to online ticket sellers to secure their seats but alas, the force is not strong with them. The sudden rush of demand from Jedi-happy fans has caused loading issues and site outages on purchasing platforms including Fandango, the Alamo Drafthouse, and AMC Theaters. Fandango was most seriously affected...

    Ted Cruz and Donald Trump have united to fight the Iran nuclear agreement. On Thursday, the Texas senator invited the real estate mogul to join him in rallying against the deal on the Capitol grounds, and Trump accepted. The two Republican presidential candidates said they would do something very big over the next two weeks in Washington. Trump made his announcement after a campaign rally in South Carolina, referring to Cruz as a friend of mine and a good guy. The event will be sponsored by Tea Party Patriots, the Center for Security Policy, and the Zionist Organization of America,...

    BOSTON -- Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama got more than an education when he attended Harvard Law School in the late 1980s. He also got a healthy stack of parking tickets, most of which he never paid. The Illinois Senator shelled out $375 in January _ two weeks before he officially launched his presidential campaign _ to finally pay for 15 outstanding parking tickets and their associated late fees. The story was first reported Wednesday by The Somerville News. Obama received 17 parking tickets in Cambridge between 1988 and 1991, mostly for parking in a bus stop, parking without a...

    In most countries, taxes are progressive, so the more you make, the higher your taxes. In contrast, most parking and speeding tickets are about what you did, not about how much you earn. But in Finland, you might pay for speeding based on the size of your fortune. That is what happened to Mr. Reima Kuisla, a Finnish businessman who was fined 54,024 euros (about $58,000) for speeding. He wasnt even going terribly fast, although his clocked 64 miles per hour did exceed the posted 50 mph limit. The whole idea of a progressive fine based on ones income may...

Upset that his friend had been ticketed for skateboarding in downtown Brighton and told to leave, Andersen said he was simply venting when he said, This is f------ bull----. The 19-year-old Brighton resident was hanging out with his friends on a sunny April day in a parking lot next to the pavilion and Imagination Station; Andersen said he swore under his breath and no children heard him. However, a Brighton Police Department officer...

The day before, a busy football Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks had demolished the St. Louis Rams and the sports postseason landscape was finally shaping up. Mr. Finkelman, who is from New Jersey, was entertaining friends that night at his home in New Brunswick, a 40-minute drive from the site of the approaching championship game: MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands Sports Complex. It was, as he remembered, your basic guys night in beers and ESPN. We were talking about the...
