A friend drove poorly and got caught.
She (many details changed to protect privacy) vroomed up to a traffic light and made a quick right-hand turn. The turn was legal. The fact that the friend made the turn without coming to a full and complete stop was … a problem.
A mean, rotten camera installed by a vicious, evil, blood-sucking traffic camera company had the gall to photograph my friend’s driving. The authorities sent my friend a ticket. The authorities were not using the machine evidence to impose “points” on my friend’s driving record. They just wanted her to send in cash.
My friend got mad at the automated driver cash milking machine system. She decided to go to court to fight the machine.
The machine won.
My friend went to court and had no luck whatsoever with fighting the ticket. But she did learn something about her fellow drivers.
Most freely admitted their guilt.
