A man was driving when a traffic camera flashed. He thought his picture was taken for exceeding the speed limit, even though he knew he was not speeding. Just to be sure, he went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed.
He thought this was quite funny, so he slowed down even further as he drove past the area, but the traffic camera flashed yet again. He tried a fourth time with the same result. The fifth time he was laughing when the camera flashed as he rolled past at a snail’s pace.
Two weeks later, he got five traffic fine letters in the mail for driving without a seat belt.
Surprised to hear he’s not sueing the camera operator for causing acute arc eye with all that flashing!
This has got to be a joke. Traffic cameras can determine if your seat belt is on and take your pic?
The day after Memerial Day our 20 year old daughter went to the grave yard to visit Buddy. She then worked a very long day at the hospital. A she was driving home, with her sterio going, windows down she noticed two police cruisers parked next to each other with their blue lights on. She was on one of the bypass interstates. The interstate has one of those four foot high concrete barriers and the coppers were opposite sides of the concrete barrier. So she drives past them. The end of the interstate was about 300 yards and there is a red light. She turned her music down as she stopped at the light. As the light turned green she turned onto another highway and the copper “blue-lighted” her. He gave her a $134 ticket for violating the noise ordnance.
So I looked up the Ordnance on line:
ARTICLE III. NOISE ORDINANCE
Sec. 14.5-71. Finding; intent.
County council finds that excessive noise compromises the public welfare and impairs enjoyment of private
property. The intent of this article is to control the sources of undue noise, thereby allowing the peaceful enjoyment
of private property. This article must be liberally construed to carry out this intent.
PRIVATE PROPERTY!? I mean I know that some homeless people sleep under bridges (which is what this was) but come on. I can’t wait for court.
Good luck in court!
LOL OH NO!!!
We have those cameras popping up on our freeways out here, too. A couple months ago one driver decided he’d had his fill of them and casually pulled his vehicle onto the side of the road. He opened his trunk and withdrew a pick axe.
He went ape-you-know-what on this camera. Apparently he did a good job on the outer shell of the thing. He wasn’t arrested, but did get a ticket and had to pay to replace the damaged camera shell.
I would have loved to have seen it in person. I wonder how many people pulled over and watched.
Ha Ha brilliant, definitely a man thing, was his name Eric by any chance???
LOL. That is hilarious. We just got those stupid cameras all over our area. So far last week there was a thousand tickets mailed out.
