The mandatory jail time is what blows me away. If they want to attack the high roller, and if it's a monetary grab by state government, then stay with the stiff fine and maybe even a license suspension. But 6-12 months in jail for a traffic violation is outrageous.
Many of us like to jump on our toys from time to time and I'm sure the majority of us choose a clear, open road where we are not threatening the lives of others. Like I said earlier, a 10 second passing gear blast in my C5, even though it results in me going 40 mph over the limit momentarily, surely does not warrant extended jail time.
