This is a problem. We all understand completely how these laws are unconstitutional by token that they conflict, just as did local ordinances called out in Ter Beek. They understand that. Until this is heard in court or we can move the legislature to recognize that publicly, we will have to expect to abide by these simple provisions or pay. Who is about to appeal a case that can be readily dismissed for a couple of hundred bucks and a misdemeanor charge? As for me, the law is really pretty simple and convenient enough.
