    You're pulling our legs, right? Why stop at fines? We need prison for jaywalkers and the lash for sidewalk spitters. That'll learn 'em.

    Yes, if that was the comparison it would be ludicrous. Are you saying that if brake A and brake B can both lock the wheel they are equally good brakes, period? There are differences in braking...
