Charging someone more because the make more... thats just fucking backwards and greedy. What about drug dealers who make 0 dollars a year and drive an escalade? What about people who make 60k a year and have their house in forcloser? What about people who make 140k a year and have 6 dependants?
a traffic fine is supposed to be a punishment for breaking a law. $100 fine to someone who only makes 500 a week is a punishment, a 100 fine for someone who makes 1,000 or more a week is not as bad as a punishment. Same when they make even more. This isnt taxes here, this is punishing someone for breaking a law. The Germans do it pretty well from what I have read, and they do take those kind of scenarios into thought, maybe not the drug dealer one.
But for the drug dealer one I would say make drugs legal, his income is than legal, and he will fined based on his income, so no issue than
