Just recently a Texas municipal court judge had fined a woman $1,590 for a decal on her car license plate being missing… Though just a few days after, she has obviously changed her mind about the penalty and its amount.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution last week reported on the plight of 52-year-old Fulton County resident Linda Ford and what the paper described as an “outlandish” fine that had been imposed by Grantville Municipal Court Judge Lisa R. Reeves.

The woman repeatedly tried to pay the fine at once, but she just missed a deadline…

Ms. Ford’s troubles began last fall…

It was then, when on an unfortunate occassion she’s been driving past the local police department building, as the Grantville, TX police officer pulled her over.

According to the journalists, that’s what happened next:

She’s been driving to the local church’s yard sale, where she intended to raise some money for homeless women of Grantville.

While she passed the police building, the officer pulled her over, he said, because her license place cover had too much tint.

Despite the fact that it was the dirt — not tinting — blown from the car’s exhaust that made it difficult to read her plate, the officer didn’t bother to mind it.

And that was then when the story began to become eerie…

    As a resident of Miami, I'm not very satisfied with the decision of organizers to change the venue. However, it must have really been a forced step. I hope this year fair will be worthy or even better than last year. And I hope Miami Exhibition Center will become available again next year.

    As for me, the American Tea and Coffee Fair is one of the most original events devoted to two widely spread drinks. If you love tea and enjoy drinking coffee, this fair is number one event for you. You can freely invite your family and friends to visit it and benefit from your free time.
