    Feb. 1 it's gonna suck even more.



    Running a red light, I can agree with. I've witnessed fatal crashes, and now I don't even run yellows. But the speeding stuff is ridiculous. There are so many traps out there now, where the speed limit is pretty unreasonable.

    If you think the speed traps are bad here, please drive through Georgia. Their Cops are absolutely crazy up there. They shoot radar off of almost every bridge and nail a lot of people for speeding.

    ***Oh towards Christmas I saw a Cop dressed up like the Ginch shooting radar on a street. He almost got me too.

    Ha if I could use photoshop I would have to make a Grinch one. :lol:

    Also you know what I love? Stop light cameras. I have been caught twice and the second was crap as turning right on red is legal in Tennessee, plus I had turned the exact same way at the exact same intersection a million times before with no problems. I later learned they had been malfunctioning and the cameras were being sold to another tech firm to re-upgrade them but that did me little good. Plus the Knoxville PD rigs it to where if you try to fight the ticket you have to pay 100+ if you lose and you know you will. :pity:

    The entire south florida metro area also has major problems with traffic light synchronization. therefore, red lights are also traps here.
