Once again this morning we take a break from our usual litany of bozo criminals and check a little bozo activity going on with our friends on the right side of the law. From San Joaquin County, California, comes the story of the sheriff’s department and their plans to purchase a half a million-dollar vehicle to coordinate emergency responses in natural disasters and in pursuit of criminals. The big rig was purchased and custom built in Ohio and driven to California where it was to be put into service. Only one problem…apparently no one in the sheriff’s department bothered to check California highway department statutes that prohibit such a heavy vehicle being driven on state roadways. Oops. Cost estimate to make it street legal in California: $19,000.
