Troubled singer Britney Spears is set to have a new law in Los Angeles named after her, because it cost $24,000 for a police escort to the hospital last month which prompted city councilmen to propose the new amendment.The toxic star was taken from her Coldwater Canyon mansion to UCLA Medical Center on January 31st in an ambulance with a police escort from the Los Angeles Police Department.The job of the motorcade, which included more than 20 police officers, a helicopter and a team of intervention specialists, was to block off traffic ahead and behind the ambulance carrying Spears to hospital, and to keep the paparazzi at bay. And the move has inspired L.A. City Councilman Dennis P. Zine to propose a safety zone be set up to protect areas around celebrities, hospitals, traffic, businesses and homes.The bill also suggests all members of the paparazzi get licences to take photographs in the protected zones, with those breaking the law having their licence revoked and royalties from the picture confiscated. He says, "The straw that broke the camel’s back is the $24,000 we spent to escort an L.A. City ambulance to the hospital. I’m not infringing upon the right to take a picture. I’m concerned about the impact they have on the general public." City Councilmen will vote on whether to adopt the new ‘Britney Law’ on March 8th.
Editors Note: Britney was in no danger by not getting to the hospital on time. This was not life or death. It is the city's fault for providing a police circus and any expenses as a result of their mistake, should be paid for by them. To make a new law, that will never hold up is just plain stupid !
