Gary Constans loses license for driving too slowly, says "It's totally communism"

"There's no freedom anymore," Gary Constans said following the appeals court's decision.
Gary Constans hasn't complied with nine requests from authorities to, for God's sake, drive faster. So now he won't be able to lawfully drive at all.

This week, the Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld a decision to revoke Constans' license.

"Constans has repeatedly disregarded warnings from law enforcement officers that his driving creates dangerous driving conditions for everyone on these two-lane roads," the court ruled. He "knows the rules of the road, but he chooses to ignore them, despite increased risk to the public."

Constans told the Pioneer Press he tries to drive no faster than 48 miles per hour even on rural highways because going slow helps him save on gas and avoid hitting "critters."

"I go really, really slow so I have time to brake," he said.

Constans lives in rural Lester Prairie, so his life will probably be more difficult without a driver's license. But during his chat with the PiPress, the retired Postal Service worker demonstrated a sense of humor about his situation.

"I just thank the Lord I'm retired from all my jobs, and I thank the Lord I don't have a wife, because could you see her yelling at me?" he said.

He also blamed his plight on the political philosophy of Marx, Stalin, and Mao, despite the fact that he's repeatedly been reported for not only driving slowly, but also driving erratically.

"It's totally communism," he said. "There's no freedom anymore."

Yes comrades stage 3 of our master plan is complete.   First Obamacare then gay marriage and soon old dumbasses won't be able to drive as slow as they desire.   Soon freedom will be dead for true Americans.  These naive fools will pay top dollar for our yankee blue jeans and Van Halen cassettes.   Sieg Heil Obama!

Being able to drive is a privilege not a right like my High school driving teacher used to tell us all. Also, finally the cops do something about real dangers to the public.

I am always amazed how one slow driver can be such a hazard to other drivers and create their own traffic snarl.

@MicheleBachmann Yeah, but isn't that what you want? You also forgot to mention that you want to disarm the population and want the so-called rich to pay even more taxes for failed social programs. All in the name of social utopia. Isn't that what you voted for? It worked out really great for the (former) USSR.

Yeah, but if cops did something about real dangers to the public, they would be accused of racial profiling. Also, there is no revenue to be generated from pursuing real criminals (because most of them are broke-ass and don't have shit). The state actually gains revenue from speeding tickets (or in this case, under-speeding) and DWI's while it loses money from prosecuting criminal ghetto thugs.

@kennyX You aren't funny enough to make jokes and get "likes" so you just troll like the pathetic stupid racist you are.   You aren't smart enough to have a civil discussion.   You are nothing but a worthless piece of human garbage.  You have a terrible soul and when you die the world will be a better place.

@kennyX @kyl3wyld  - I don't think there are too many "criminal ghetto thugs" in Lester Prairie.
