I'm a very law-abiding person (well, before and after my college days). But I do think of myself as creative. So I saw something today that really blew my mind.
I was in the car waiting for the left turn light to come on and a guy in the straight-through lane came to a complete stop in the intersection. And stayed there. This is something I have never seen before.
I pondered that while the various traffic lights cycled around to my turn and I carefully drove around the stopped car.
Then it hit me! No, not the car, just a sudden realization. The intersection has one of those "automated traffic-ticket cameras". They work by taking a picture of your back license plate after you drive through the intersection after the red light comes on.
OMG, he stopped in the intersection so that the camera couldn't take a picture of his license plate. When the light turns green again, the camera won't take a picture!!!
I'm not supporting drivers pushing red traffic lights; its dangerous to them and others. The driver probably has other bad habits. In fact, it's likely that he's a jerk.
But I just have to admire the thinking of anyone who figures out a way around some of the minor daily rules of life.
