and I thought I would get away this whole season without a ticket...
The grand irony is, I got the ticket on terminal ave, which i drive/ride on everyday to work and I know damn well there are speed traps. Following traffic, minding my own business when 2 cars in front puts left turn signal on. I get in the right lane to go by them. Half way past the car that was in front of me, he decides to turn into my lane so I accelerate as a defense mechanism and then slow back down.
"sir you were going 80 in a 50 zone, here's your reading on the laser".
"well i suppose you are right officer, I did indeed accelerate to 80 in order to avoid a collision"
"well that's not allowed, I'm giving you the minimum ticket"
"ok then, thank you, have a nice day"
while I was there getting written up, 4 other cop cars were pulling over other commuters. I'm glad the roads are safer today.
