Now the photo in the post has nothing to do with the below story.Just to draw ya in. You can thank me later.

Outstanding Traffic Fines in the Province Total $28 Million

According to the RNC, the province has more than $28 million in uncollected traffic fines on the books and police say they're having trouble tracking down the offenders. RNC officials say they're stopping motorists almost daily who have unpaid fines and, as of November, there were at least five motorists in the province who owed more than $40,000 each. During the last quarter, police in St. John's nabbed thirty-seven drivers who collectively owed $330,000 in outstanding fines.

The Department of Justice has indicated that payments for outstanding fines are difficult to collect because the people who owe them may have unpublished cell phone numbers, no fixed address, are in jail or have no job or credit history.

The outstanding fines may be difficult to collect but once you have a person pulled over and he/she owes a certain amount of dollars,SEIZE THE BLOODY VEHICLE!  As for the rest of the money,hire someone and give them a percentage to track those people down and make them pay.

Here's where a lot of Residents in Cape Ray get their clean source of drinking water. It's 2011 and I'm wondering if there are any more places in NL where so many have to do this. I do think Black Tickle in Labraor has a similar problem. My own source has become so bad now that we have to go to another community with our laundry and my next door neighbors also go elsewhere. This coming Spring we will have to invest up to $10,000 for an Artesian Well. We can expect no help from the Government but yet years ago they made an offer for helping communities.We will soon see large Transmission lines and Infrastructure near our community running Hydro Lines across the Cabot Strait to Nova Scotia. I doubt if anyone who comes to the area to work will build a home in Cape Ray but go elsewhere because of the fact we have no water source available. With the upcoming election in October hopefully those still without a clean drinking water supply will elect someone who thinks in this day and age it's a right to have it.
