I live in Austin and can tell you that he is one of the good ones. He's consistently engaged with the public and doesn't try to assign culpability to victims.
If you go just north of the city to Williamson county then you get the exact opposite where they frequently pull people for extremely minor infractions or things that aren't infractions at all. They'll often run "checkpoints" that aren't checkpoints where they put 4-5 cop cars at an intersection and just start pulling people over for all sorts of reasons.
It makes Avevedo's conviction and standing up to do the right thing all the more impressive.
Oh, they'd be rescued for sure. Our tax dollars would be a great new revenue stream for them in addition to what we already pay them. Then they're execs would take nice retirement packages for a soft pillowy landing.
Most people won't even know how to fight this or that they didn't "use" that much bandwidth. Couple that with people who may only get charged a few bucks and just pay it...it all adds up to a great scheme to make profit.
Don't worry though, if they eventually get caught, they'll have to pay a fine that is a fraction of what they made from the practice...soo...ya know, justice.
