This wouldn't happen in places with open carry gun laws, like Texas.

I bet it really doesn't happen in Switzerland. They did well keeping riff raff out.

Oh, sure. What are a few dozen dead people a month in movie theaters or houses of worship or meet-and-greets with their Congresswoman so long as everyone has the right to shoot people for hassling their cars or being in a neighborhood where they don't look like everyone else?

The scallies were doing this in Liverpool about 20 years ago.

Scally - If you want to park your car here it'll cost you a quid mister
Driver - Why, what will happen if I don't give you a quid?
Scally - The car'll disappear.
Driver - See that dog in the back seat? Its a Rottweiler. It'll rip you apart if you try to steal the car.
Scally - Aye, but is it any good at putting out fires?

The harassing-you-to-let-you-pay-them-to-wash-your-windows bit was big in New York in the late 80s to early 90s.

As far as I know, it's a phenomenon of the past.

Many European cities would do well with Rudolph Giuliani's style zero-tolerance police intervention. They could start at Bruxelles, Roma and Berlin.

At the risk of opening a can of worms, there seem to be...phrasing this carefully...differences in law enforcement priorities and in ideas of what "justice" is. I was stunned to read last week that Marc Dutroux' wife is being released ("conditionally" released - a convent agreed to house her - but still....) But I'm not sure giving the public the right to shoot people who are bothering their cars makes for safer streets either.

I'm not of Giuliani's party and wouldn't vote for him for President, but he does seem to have gotten the right balance in New York.

Driving in the summertime equals bugs on the bumper.

I've heard about Romanians, driving Romanian registered car in Austria, and getting the fine at home (in Romania)...

What do you mean by being ok? . I just received it in the post at home in NL lol. Nvm its already paid, wasnt much, just doing 135 on 120 variable sign. Anyway now I was fined alredy by police in CZ, GE and NL, although in NL was it only when riding a bicycle, so far the highest fine anyway on the bike.

Actually two times on s bike in NL and once for speeding in a car, but dont know if that was me or my gf in the car then. No photo by the Dutch police . The Germans at least make you a photo, lol.
