You wanna get silly with the scenario's be my guest. Getting run down by some jack hole on an ATV while you were out playing on your bike or tossing around your toy Frisbee warrants restrictive action by the state. Of course you could shoot the ATV moron and take your chances with the court system. You know, that "nanny state" thing again.

That way the, your ticket would be issued by Google and deducted automatically from your Visa account. The best part is that it will be your constitutional right to have your Visa account bailed out. Even better, with enough bailout points you get free stuff from a GAO Green Stamp catalog.
I could go on with this fantasy, but it is more like a nightmare we are bequeathing to our Grandchildren.
The problem well meaning ideas like this: Politicians will use it to gain more power and then more power. They never give back power! Power to the people always results in more power for the government.
Ok, enough of this rant!
