What happens when Government workers have "Ho-Hum" attitude

One family was charged $15,000 in fees and fines for using an EZ Pass bridge that should have been free to them (details in story). All because their account balance was below the toll fee! Workers knew what was happening, but didn't tell them right away.

Also, note the 2 different rates on the sign for in-state and out of state EZ Pass users.

postimg.org missing photos

First Photobucket decides that folks who have used their service for years for free should all of a sudden pay, breaking thousands of photo links across the net. One of the buckets alternatives (for me) was postimg.org, now that domain has disappeared and all the photo's associated with along it.

Quote:

"postimg.ORG domain is locked by Registry, no prior notice.

Bus Using Non Commercial GPS Hits Overpass

On the Southern State Parkway in Long Island New York, the roof of a bus was sheared off at high speed at a low-clearance overpass, injuring many passengers. Trucks and buses are not permitted on the road except for mini school buses.

Newsday (pay site) reports the driver was using an auto GPS which did not avoid low clearances.

Time for a Trimble/ALK/CoPilot Discussion Area?

Is it time for a Trimble/ALK/CoPilot Discussion Area here on POI Factory?

I've been a more active member in past years than lately, and to be honest I miss frequenting POI Factory! Lots of great people on here then and now.

It's about the Line- If a line can be drawn between the powers granted and the rights retained, it would seem to be the same thing, whether the latter be secured by declaring that they shall not be abridged, or that the former shall not be extended.

No Punctuation, No Capitalization, Not Readable

Whenever I see a post where the author is too lazy to include even rudimentary punctuation and capitalization to indicate individual sentences, I just don't read it. I realize that this is only my opinion and others may see it differently.

E-ZPass higher rates for out-of-state tags

Do you think it's ok, for E-ZPass users to get charged more, because they are from another state?

I always knew about it in NYC, where say the Verrazano is $17 for everybody incl. out of state E-ZPass, but $11.52 for NY tags.

What I did not realize is MD, MA are two other examples where that is done, and I suppose there must be more examples.
