Wash your car, go to jail?
Now being considered in San Luis Obispo County (CA), where I live: a law making it illegal to wash your own car. You might think the argument for this proposed legislation has something to do with our ongoing drought problems. Nope. Supervisors feel that too much dirty, soapy water may be washing down the storm drains and into the sewers. Of course, in my neighborhood, we have no sewers or storm drains. We're all on septic. Big friggin' deal. The law would still apply.
So my fellow county residents and I may soon be coerced into spending $7 to $20 to have our cars washed by "professionals," rather than do the washing ourselves.
