Wash Your Car, Go To Jail

The greenies are really pushing americans to the breaking point with their latest moves ...

In King County, Wash., local officials are mulling a move to prohibit residents from washing their cars on the street over concerns that the runoff is sloshing into Puget Sound. In Fairfax, Calif., fearing similar runoff pollution, officials have proposed a ban on washing cars in front of one's home, with citations and possible imprisonment for violators.(emphasis mine)

Yep, you could go to jail if you wash YOUR car at YOUR home.

And about those bikini clad girls washing your car to raise funds for homeless people?

In Santa Monica, Calif., city officials drafted a plan in October to rein in car washing by groups such as the Boy Scouts or soccer clubs. The city deems such car-wash fund-raisers "one of the biggest water wasters and pollution-generating events of this type," according to its proposal

Can you say Nanny state, they are now telling you where and when you can wash your vehicle.

That was the law where I lived in Florida. You HAD to use the "real" car washes.....or you could get as much as a $250 ticket......

In many areas of North Carolina, you can now be jailed for washing cars (unless you're a business). Worse, here, there's ZERO due process. In other words, some bureaucrat just says that they saw you washing your car and you're in jail. No trial, no jury, nothing.
