Florida: Court Approves Detaining Motorists at Toll Booth

I've got a $50 trillion note myself.

I keep it taped underneath a 1923 $100,000 Reichsbank mark on my safe - reminders, that hyperinflation catches up with EVERY paper/fiat currency... eventually...

Wellllll... IS it, or ISN'T it?!?! Shrug

This is actually not entirely true that people are obligated to take US currency. If I go to WAWA and pay for a $5 sandwich I haven't eaten and try to pay with 500 pennies they do not have to take it. There is no debt incurred yet. On the other hand if I want to pay my $250 light bill with 250,000 pennies THEY DO have to take that because I am settling an existing debt. The only time they cannot refuse to take currency is if a service has already been rendered or a product has already been given to you and you are trying to settle a debt that you have incurred.

BTW: I also have a 100 Trillion note, but its nice and I also keep it in my safe (lol although I don't know why). The 50 billion I have was already circulated when I got it so I don't have to worry about messing it up in my wallet Tongue.

I am fairly sure the toll policy was enacted due to counterfeit money being used. They collected the information in case the bill was bad.

I went to chicago with some friends, and we were getting tired of all the tolls, so we payed in change the rest of the trip. That's what I would do in florida.

Bill Detection Report huh? I'd say while you're working on your report, I'll work on my Book Report and sit there with my feet up for an hour or so.

That justifies it? Just like the government doesn't use EZ Pass transponders when they investigate people to see where they are going without a warrant? If there's too much counterfeit money in circulation the answer is to violate people's rights rather than make the secret service get their shit in gear?

You see, it all depends on what "is" means. If it was good enough for Clinton... Rolleyes

I agree. I think this is one example of a trend in America. I recall reading about the woman who was detained at Walmart and had her bills ripped up because the employees didn't think they were real. I really think we need to get away from using plastic and go back to using cash. Then people would not only become more familiar with what real money looks like due to handling it (and so reduce these incidents), I also think that our personal debts would decrease. I don't want to get into my reasoning for this right here, but if you want to know, send me a PM....

No one's rights were violated. You guys feel free to take what I posted, and this thread, in whatever ridiculous way you decide. Some of you have a very misguided understanding of what rights are, and under what circumstances they have been violated. Have fun.

So you think passing a $5 bill is probable cause to be detained and possibly searched without a warrant? I'm glad you're not a supreme court judge... I think you're the one with the misguided notions about what rights are. You're supposed to be innocent until proven guilty and you are not compelled to give up your info or submit to any kind of a search without legitimate probable cause. That's how its supposed to work. I don't think you'll find much compassion for your interpretation of our rights here with that mindset.

I tend to agree with the bolded. I am of the ilk that agrees with the saying that "It is better to let 1000 guilty go free than to imprison one innocent person".
