Last year, in anticipation of abortions possibly becoming illegal in Michigan, Ann Arbor voters passed an amendment to the city charter making the maximum allowed penalty for getting an illegal abortion a $5 fine. (As a side note, the same election increased the fine for possessing small quantities of marijuana from $5 to $25 for a first offense and $100 for a second).
However, the really strange thing about this policy is that its enforcement would be assigned to the Parking Department.
So I guess this is a way of penalizing excessive parking after 6 p.m..
But what I have to wonder is what they'll do to women who don't pay their abortion tickets. Since 6 unpaid traffic tickets results in getting your car booted, will 6 unpaid abortion tickets result in having a chastity belt put on you?
