Re: Swearing Fines
I could see a few technical problems with this.
Say one guy who likes this law just so happens to get a recording of someone in a shouting match. The problem is that the audio quality is fuzzy / crappy and there's one bit where the guy sounds like he's cursing even though a reality check would reveal that he didn't curse. Would the guy's fate rest on whether or not the police think it sounds like cursing?
If there's no system for appealing these fines that's similar to how you go to court for speeding tickets (in America, at least), then that guy's screwed if the police think he's guilty.
Gotta love the inner workings of the government...
