ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - A young man has been arrested in St. John's, N.L., for numerous traffic offences, including about $45,000 in outstanding fines.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary says officers stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation in the area of New Gower Street around 12:30 a.m. today.

They say the driver, a 23-year-old man, was charged with operating a vehicle with no license or insurance.

He also has about $45,000 in outstanding fines.

The vehicle's owner was charged with allowing his vehicle to be operated by a unlicensed and uninsured driver.

The driver of the vehicle was held in custody for a court appearance Sunday and the vehicle was impounded.

    In Newfoundland, we put all these 'laws' on the books years ago...back when we needed to show that we qualified for various federal assistance programs . But we're a 'Have' province now, and we got so much money we don't need to collect any fines or keep up the pretense of "enforcing the law" any more! Drink up and go at 'er, b'yes! She's good times! Oh...and welcome tourists!!

    Please tell me, how can some people go that long , owing so much money, driving without a lisense, no registration or insurance? I didn't think a person could get that far without dated tags on a vehicle. Why aren't those cars impounded until all money is paid and then moniter those same drivers after.
