Re: $140.00 for safe right turn

The law is enforced differently in different places. Where I used to live, if a light turned yellow everybody hit the gas. That way three cars could get through on the yellow, and two more on the red. Years ago they had a choice; enforce the law or concentrate on preventing accidents. They set a three second delay on green lights. That way a couple of cars could safely get through on the red. That doesn't mean they never gave tickets, but it wasn't a priority.

When the feds lifted the 55 mph speed limit years ago the police commissioner was asked why they didn't raise the limit on the LIE. He said everybody already does 65, why waste money on signs.

Well its not safe or bs if you didn't make a full stop.
I see you removed the video info. I take that as an admission of guilt.

First of all, I am not a troll. Was just giving my opinions.
If thats the case then everyone else that gave an opinion here is also a troll in your mind?

Second, by you saying "look gang" it makes you sound like some sort of coward trying to muster up the support of others because your not sure of yourself and your accusations.

Third, you yourself stated..."If you post in the forum, expect comments, even if you don't like them." Well you wrote that didn't you? So why is it you feel the need to break rules just because you don't like or agree with someones comments?

Forth and last, I reported your post for breaking some rules here.

I think you should take a good look at yourself with that magnifying glass of yours before accusing others of being trolls.

They are not giving into ignorance, they are trying to make the roads safer. By putting a three second delay between light changes, someone who runs a red light right after it changes will not hit and hurt/kill someone. The person is still doing something illegal, and therefore can still (and will if there is a cop or camera) get ticketed, but they won't hurt someone else. It sounds like you are suggesting taking out the delay to avoid "giving in to ignorance", which will cause many more people, many of them the innocent drivers who are going the other direction because they have a green light, to get hurt or even killed.

Also, I'm sure that you never go at least a mile per hour above the speed limit on accident, even if you are trying to drive at or under the speed limit.

If you're going to get on a soap box, please use proper grammar and learn the difference between "their" and "they're."

Their is a possessive adjective which is used before a noun. It shows possession, that something belongs to them.
  • Their house is big.
  • All of their friends were crazy.
  • The children put their books in their school bags.
They’re is a contraction of they are.
e.g. They’re happy = They are happy
They’re is usually before an adjective or a verb ending in ING.
  • They’re very interested in the project.
  • I personally think they’re crazy!
  • They’re singing loudly.

This thread isn't about speed limits.

And if they put a delay on green lights because people can't stop when they see a red light then yes I stand by my statement.......that is giving in to ignorance. Giving more leeway to people that go through red lights does not make the roads safer.

How old are you? Sure acting like a kid. "I'm gonna tell". You know, sometimes it is better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
