Description of suggestion: Add, "All U.S. vehicle modification laws apply to the city of Monoford.", as a permanent law.
Reason why it should be added: I, and many others, commonly receive tickets for tinted windows. It is widely regarded as illegal in 49 states in the union. But, it isn't considered a US Federal Law, or a US Traffic Law. It isn't usually ever listed as a temporary town ordinance, nor is it clearly included in the permanent laws. US Traffic Laws exist mostly on the state level, and not on the federal level. So that law is obviously implying to drive following the laws that most states follow. But, because it says "traffic laws", there is confusion regarding the extent it expands to, including vehicle modification laws. Similarly to public farming, it is a law that should be common sense. But should be included in the permanent laws regardless. It could easily be slid underneath "All U.S. traffic laws apply to the city of Monoford.". Upon speaking to @Apecengo and @Green Gatorade Water Bottle , they believe it is a valid ticket reason. So I believe it should have a more clear definition in the laws.

Simply saying "All U.S. Laws" isn't helping with ambiguity. Laws here differ pretty wildly from state to state, and adding that would introduce unwanted consiquences for different modification laws conflicting with other ones. IMO you shouldn't be ticketed for anything you could buy legally from the modshop or car dealer.

That is a valid point. But seeing as staff members as high as senior admin have said tinted windows are ticket-able. There should be some form of law added to clarify it. Even if it isn't the exact law I suggested.

Maybe the whole Law thing should be reworked,

I don't know what happened to the official law book but something like that should exist and be a link for people to view via the tablet. Mayors like to add already existing US laws like jaywalking or legalizing weed which prompts staff to intervene in something that may be legal in their state but not in others. The current laws app in the tablet is outdated and utterly useless and creates drama, creating a custom law book would be better for everyone especially when a portion of players are from outside the US and are not all that knowledgeable about US law. IRL Laws like sexual assault cannot even be enforced since its a rule violation which was something in the poorly made last law book.

Stop the confusion and create an official monolith state law book that makes sense to what this game mode is, do not just copy and paste IRL laws like the last law book, but also make it presentable and not an eye sore.

As far as I am aware, we operate off the laws from this:

Maybe the Laws app should just re-link to this thread which we can update to make sure it is clear and concise.

That or remove the permanent laws, so mayors may set their own laws, but have a way to navigate to the thread above which can be used as the "permanent laws".
