A Utah Transit Authority Trax light rail vehic...

Apparently, there is a subset of Utahns that are SO special that they have required the Utah Transit Authority(UTA) to take action. UTA has imposed a civil fine of $50/$100 for  “distracted walking“. They were prompted to take this action as there have been two recent incidents where people (we’ll call them Utahrds) have been injured because they walked into either the train itself or the path of the train because they were not paying attention. So yes, UTA has finally put into place a concept I have been in favor of for a long time, the Idiot Tax. (see also; Tax on the Idiot)

However, since most Utahrds are nearly as wealthy as Mitt Romney, the $50 civil fine will have about as much effect as a poke in the eye.
