Time to get a bicycle.

Hi Brit,

Just thought I’d warn you about, Use a mobile… and lose your vehicle.  Actually, after reading the article I think you’d better get a bicycle.  We have a similar, and under reported, law, allowing police to confiscate property they suspect was purchased with money made from drug crimes.  The local police confiscate enough cars to pay their expenses from the resell.  This is the reason one should never carry large amounts of cash over here.  Studies have shown that a high percentage of the currency in circulation has detectable amounts of cocaine on it.  Thus, any given wad of cash will probably set a drug detection dog off and, poof, the police get your money.  Note that there is no trial, no need to show cause, just a suspicion by the officer.  The process to protest the confiscation is a very lengthy and expensive process with no guarantee of success.  Ah, freedom, I do miss it.
