There’s a woman in Minnesota that has an outstanding ticket for not buckling in Iowa. Amy Rush got the ticket in 1990 when she was a runaway and in the car with an older man that was pulled over for speeding. The state of Iowa has been trying to collect on the ticket ever since. She says her parents received a letter from the state saying she owed $35 for the ticket. Rush says back then she decided not to pay for the ticket. She says the officer first concern shouldn’t have been her seat belt.
To state sent rush’s debt to a collect agency which tracked her down. She says she’s not paying and thought about driving the two and a half hours to tell the judge what a waste of time and money Iowa is spending trying to get her money. Truth is if she did drive to Iowa and got pulled over and the state issued a warrant she could be arrested. Apparently there’s no statute of limitations on this kind of fine.
