darwinpolice: shiat, have you ever been to East Cleveland? I don't stop at red lights there, either.
Eatin' Queer Fetuses for Jesus: redmid17: Eatin' Queer Fetuses for Jesus: Good to know we have someone here on Fark who was in the room and witnessed this collusion. Why don't you speak up next time and tell them how wrong it is?Still doesn't change the fact that shortening the yellow lights only punishes those assholes who speed up when they see one, which is the opposite of what you are supposed to do. A lot of people *talk* about safety being the important issue, then out of the other side of their mouth champion the practice of speeding up to "beat" a yellow light.Next time it comes up for a vote, you can bet I will. Also why do you think cities and counties install these lights? It's for the revenue, not the safety. There's a reason why they justify the cost and expensive contract with revenue projections....Instead of being an obtuse moron, realize that these particular contraptions are extremely controversial, at best, for a reason. Given that many cities have dumped cash at ATS to get out of the shiatty contracts, you're pretty easily on the wrong side of this one.Given that nobody has posted a link proving the traffic camera companies were reprogramming traffic light timing, I'm pretty sure I'm still on the right side of the argument I was participating in. Not sure what you were reading.
Eatin' Queer Fetuses for Jesus: texref: Screw red light cameras. They shouldn't be legal against anyone.The companies that put them in have been caught shortening the time of the yellow lights so that more people run red lights, so they can issue more tickets.Total scam.
ha-ha-guy: Dman33: My dad used to work nights at a plant in Hamtramck and would take Cass in to the plant. He said there are multiple instances were he genuinely feared for his life on his way to/from work. I always wondered why he drove large late-70s tanks for his 'work car'.Hamtramck was definitely the worst of all the plants out there. Even Flint and Saginaw weren't as bad. We kept a rusted out compact up at the technical center. If you had to go to Hamtramck after hours you left your car at the tech center and went in with the crap car and a big ugly XXL jacket on to hide any nice clothes you might be wearing. That car looked like crap but the power train was kept in pristine condition, because you absolutely did not want that car dying on you./it's pointless to carry a weapon//I've been mugged twice, each time it was at least four people with multiple guns visible on their persons, hauling out my CCW would have just ensured I lost my wallet and ended up with some bullet holes in me
Devo: All I remember from my drivers ed class in high schoolQ: A firetruck, a police car, a USPS truck, and an ambulance pull up to a four way stop at the same time. Which has the right of way?A USPS truck
pedrop357: vpb: Glancing Blow: Simplistic solution: arrest them in the USPS attack vehicles, impound the trucks, and make the USPS come and get them. After five or six times the red-light running will cease. Repeat as necessary.Yes, because impounding Ft. Sumpter worked out so well.A vehicle is different than a fort.//The more you know...///Rainbow star sparkles
Mugato: "However, as you are probably aware, the Postal Service enjoys federal immunity from state and local regulation,"So do all the mailmen who shoot up their offices skate?
pedrop357: Between this and their immunity to parking tickets, I wonder what other traffic laws USPS vehicles can violate.
cleveoh: Running a few redlights in East Cleveland is some times a matter of self preservation.
