Last week I was at a fairly large, busy intersection—one of those with cars going through in so many directions that the red cycle seems quite long. The person at the head of the queue was apparently napping, or lost in thought, or otherwise occupied when the light went green, and he didn’t move until just before our brief green turned yellow.
Two or three of the cars behind him did not have the patience to wait through the red cycle again. Three or four more cars scooted through after the brief yellow was over. Guess who was one of them!
And thanks to the traffic cameras at the intersection, I now have my fifteen seconds of fame with the DMV!
