Just one more reason California is a moving train wreck

This almost doesn’t seem real, but the date isn’t April 1 and the source isn’t the Onion.

Yikes!

From the link:

Tracy residents will now have to pay every time they call 9-1-1 for a medical emergency.

But there are a couple of options. Residents can pay a $48 voluntary fee for the year which allows them to call 9-1-1 as many times as necessary.

Or, there’s the option of not signing up for the annual fee. Instead, they will be charged $300 if they make a call for help.
