Maybe fines should be abolished...
But then well done the millionaire for having enough money to be able to afford the fine.
It strikes me as the same principle as saying 'millionaires should have to pay extra for XYZ because they're rich'...
But no? Surely the entire point of a progressive taxation system is the rich pay much more to society in taxes- and then on consumption should pay the same as everyone else.
Surely the same should apply to fines? Surely if I was on the poverty line I wouldn't risk parking on a double yellow line, but if I was a billionaire I would- and no amount of fine will realistically change that.
