Politics: where absolutely anything is OK as long as the right team does it.

Well this ain't gonna happen...

The Estonian road insurance fund is about to start claiming payments from people who own uninsured cars. The claims will be retroactive, and the payments calculated at about 3 times the normal third-party rate. On Sept. 1st, the fund will start sending out letters telling people to insure their cars or salvage them. If they don't, they will receive a bill on Oct. 1st, for all the time their car was not insured. This bill is subject to immediate collection by court services if not paid within two months.

Like fuck they will. First and foremost it will get shot down in the courts based on consumer laws - one does not have to pay for a service that one has not agreed to use.
