San Mateo County levies a serious punishment for traffic violations: Internet Explorer

Why should governments force a technology decision on their inhabitants?

Today I received word that Microsoft owns a small piece of the California government.

I, um, rolled to a near-stop on a right turn at a red light and Mr. Traffic Camera sent me a ticket. Spoiled my day.

Even worse, however, was when I went online to try to pay the ticket. I have to use Internet Explorer to do business with San Mateo County, apparently. What a complete joke.

Use Linux? Mac OS X? Or even Firefox on Windows? Sorry.

This sort of rubbish web design speaks ill of San Mateo County. I may be forced to stop getting tickets there. I'm taking my criminal activity elsewhere. No more cruel and unusual punishment for me.
