Q: When are the police going to perform a sweep and ticket the scofflaws who live here without having their cars and motorcycles licensed in Minnesota? Some of these folks have been living here for almost a year. A: Thank you for your question. The term scofflaw originated during Prohibition to identify an individual whom scoffed at the law and continued to drink alcohol. Today, the term scofflaw is more general in nature, a person who flouts the law, especially one who fails to pay fines owed, and also a person who flouts rules, conventions, or accepted practices.
