On April 15th I was driving home from a horrible round of golf with Gourlay at JC Melrose when apparently I ran a red light.

You judge for yourself (I’m the white Mazda).

They’re saying I owe ONE HUNDRED dollars.

I don’t know how to feel about this.

On one hand, I don’t like the idea of robots policing people to the letter of the law, as this was a pretty ‘innocent’ action.

On the other hand, if I saw this exact video, but instead of my car it was a car with a really loud engine, tinted windows, and blasting music, I’d be happy they got nabbed and would say we should do more of this!

But I can’t have it both ways.

So where do I land?

Fuck these. This was not a $100 violation. They just charge you the money and you have no out.

Maybe in 50 years this will be the norm at every stop sign and red light. Everyone will be used to it and people will look back at the chaos that was 2022 red light running. But I doubt it.
