Guest Editor-Blogger, Dale Saxton on license suspension for reporting a Bigfoot.
Well, to my dismay I'm apparently wrong. I called the lady that reported the Elkton Tunnel sighting and she informs me she did get a suspension notice from Salem DMV, stating her right to drive has been terminated till the time in which she can take and pass an examination by a doctor.
This is totally uncalled for, and nothing short of illegal harassment. I'm mad as hell now, knowing these people have to go through this kind of thing, just because they've seen a Sasquatch and tried to do the right thing. What is it coming too!
Guest Editor-Blogger, Mrs. Constitution on the same subject.
They only do that if you're driving a vehicle of some sort, when you make a report. If you are on foot when seeing Bigfoot you are OK. I hope! CA, OR, AZ, TX, MN, ID, NE, AR, AL, AK, MO, DE, FL, MI WI all do it. It was due to the PATRIOT ACT 2001. There is currently seven lawsuits to overturn it: court date Supreme Court hearing 2001.
Guest Editors and Bloggers: On suspending of licenses after reporting a Bigfoot sighting.
Dale Saxon: No, I have not heard of this one, but it would not be surprising to me if they tried it. The state does not consider bigfoot to be real, so it would stand to reason they would try pulling something like that. I would seriously doubt that it is legal because of the sheer number of folks that do report each year in Orgon, Wasington and California. But as you know, it's the state so they can do whatever they want.
Thomas: Yes, in fact, the state of Oregon does do this. They have you charged with MAKING A FALSE POLICE REPORT, if they think (and they do) you're not mentally competent to drive. I should know they laid it to me.
M.R.: I've heard of it. I work for Douglas County Road Dept. and knew a guy who reported one [Bigfoot] on Union Creek, near Riddle, only to have his CDL suspended. It took him two month and plenty of money to get it returned to him.
Guest Editor-Blogger, Chris Perry, has this to say on DMV's Dirty Little Secret:
If the DMV's dirty little secret is true, here is a point that concerns me: The licensed driver reporting a Bigfoot sighting to the police, who then has his/her license suspended, has apparently been handed the burden of proof as to his/her sanity.
Even though no laws have been broken, he/she is punished. They are punished with a negative mark on their driving record, with the cost of a doctor's visit, and with the loss of time from work getting it all straightened out. And not of little concern is the inconvenience of not being able to drive.
Guest Editor-Blogger, ex DMV employee has this warning for us:
It might not be such a smart idea to report a Bigfoot to the police because, as an ex DMV employee of Oregon, I can tell you of a nasty little secret that the State does.
When somebody reports seeing a Bigfoot in Oregon, the officer is required to make a report to the DMV for possible suspension of ODL or CDL. This little secret has caused a lot of folks heartache because the DMV can suspend and demand you see a shrink before getting your ODL reinstated.
I remember one guy that was a logging truck driver that reported that he almost hit a Bigfoot early one morning to police, only to have his CDL revoked till he could be cleared by a doctor. I think this practice is deplorable.
Dale Saxton, have you heard of this practice?
Question fromLinda Newton-Perry
Guest Editor-Blogger, Vernon, has more to say on his Tiller Sighting:
I believe the whistle was not human. Way too loud and too much volume to be human and from too far away. Kind of like EEEEEEOOOO. What ever it was the sasquatch knew what it was because it quickly walked off towards that sound.
The face seemed dark like an apes face but with human like features: large black eyes, hair except around nose and eyes. I think the hair was matted looking and around four inches long on its head.
Mostly I was thinking I want to get the heck out of here!
