Man Pays Ticket with Urine-Soaked CoinsMarch 31st, 2009 by Silvio
After receiving a $206 traffic fine, a Washington man decided to let the state know how he feels. He collected $206 in coins, put them in a plastic bag and mailed the whole thing in a nice box to Multnomah County court. After he urinated in the bag, of course.
According to postal officials it’s not illegal to mail any bodily fluids, as long as they don’t leek and/or smell. And as county employees attested, this was not the case.
What the angry citizen didn’t take into account was, that the maximum amount of coins he can use to pay for his ticket, is limited to $20. So the spoiled money was returned, a late fee and postage added and the whole fine is now up to $271.
But at least the county doesn’t intend to pursue the matter, if everything is paid.
