C.R.A.P. Host Byron Kingsley Barely Avoids One Year In Jail

…  for idling his car too long.  Really.

In this “Live Free or Die” state if you idle your car longer than 5 minutes and the temperature is above 32 degrees you’re looking at the possibility of being caged like an animal for up to a year.  If the temperature is above -10 degrees but below 32, you get another ten minutes of idling before said imprisonment could become a reality.

How compassionate of the legislature to allow you to stay warm in frigid temperatures for another ten minutes before authorizing your freedom be stripped away and you be branded a criminal.
