Flimsy Sanity: Isn't That Special????

Isn't That Special????

Special license plates shield officials from traffic tickets In California and I am sure other places - special people get license plates that excuse them from the laws we rubes must observe.

It sounds like something out of the former Soviet Union, where the well-connected could obtain special number plates that exempted them from traffic laws. According to Wikipedia, "the nomenklatura were a small, elite subset of the general population in the Soviet Union who held various key administrative positions in all spheres of the Soviet Union: government, industry, agriculture, education, etc. The nomenklatura had more authority and claimed higher privileges of the same kind as the ruling class which Communist doctrine denounced in the Capitalist West."

I believe that in North Dakota, these special plates and some worse perks go to the Infragard.
