Back Off Big Brother Article

I found this to be an interesting story goes to show the hoops some people jump through not to get caught doing the wrong thing on the highway.

What is your opinion?

I like the monkey mask. But he needs one for the tag on the car.

I have never gotten a red light ticket. I have however done what is considered runnig a red light. Not on purpose though. My wife always yells at me for not going on thru the light on yellow. If I feel I have time to stop, I will stop when I see a yellow. I do my best to not run a red light. There are times however when it turns red before I get under it. One reason is when I notice a yellow I always check my rear view before getting on the brakes. If someone is following close I usually decide to chance it and go on thru the yellow. Sometimes I still get caught under a red still.

I think knowing a camera was there would encorage me to slam on the brakes to avoid a ticket even though that is probley not the safest route. I do the same thing if I see a police car. If I see a police car I forget about checking the rear view and just get on the brakes hard to avoid possibley running the light.

Just running thru the light when it is red is another thing. Of course that deserves a ticket, but I doubt that happens enough to get enough revenue to pay for the companies to install the cameras.

Far and away the most frequent infraction is turning right just as the light turns.

Most would not consider this 'running a red light' - except for the inattentive dumb a$$ pedestrian that insists on stepping off the curb early... without verifying that it is safe to cross.

It is illegal to cover the car tag, but nothing says you cant were a mask while driving.
