The O.C. Commute

Howard officials are taking a look at the county's take-home car policy, according to this story in the Examiner.

This passage caught our attention:

In the sheriff’s office, a few deputies racked up nearly 25,000 miles, mainly because they transport prisoners and sometimes travel for extraditions, said Sheriff James Fitzgerald.

Fitzgerald’s 2007 mileage was 26,454, some of which he attributed to driving back and forth on the weekends to Ocean City, where his wife lives.

A couple months ago, Fitzgerald began driving his own 1998 Toyota to Ocean City, so his mileage this year will be lower, he said.

“Everyone was moaning about it. ... I have drastically cut down now,” he said.
