re: Hayfield Parking...now controlled by parking nazis! - LSUTiger13
We can only hope that it doesn't become controlled like the lot next to Walk On's where you are not allowed to set up a tailgate. The powers that be have to realize that there are only so many available tailgating spots in the non-parking areas so tailgating should be allowed in "parking" lots as we...

re: New Car Tax Deduction - LSUTiger13
[quote]Deductable if it is a "ad valorum" tax, in LA your vehicle registration is such. [/quote] I came across something recently that indicated that the DMV has indicated that registration is not based on the value of the vehicle. I guess this would be because the vehicle is not revalued in lat...

re: Any updates on flex-fuel rebates? - LSUTiger13
This was a very poorly written law which includes flex fuel vehicles based on the black letter of the law. The fact that LDR is saying that refunds will not be issued after the June date is completely absurd. This would lead to an inequitable treatment of individuals who have the same right to the c...

re: alternative fuel credit change in policy FINALIZED. - LSUTiger13
I do not understand how they can say that a flex fuel vehicle does not qualify under this law the way it is written. The way it reads to me is that the incremental cost of equipment that is related to the capability of using an alternative fuel qualifies for the credit, but the cost that is related ...
