So about 200 new laws go into effect today, and one of those we as motorists I’m sure will appreciate.
There now has to be a warning sign posted ahead of a speed enforcement camera. And if you’ve ever gotten a surprise ticket in the mail, you know how badly it sucks.
It happened to me once, but it was a red light camera ticket worth $117. (oh happy day, not.) And of course they send you these notices with a link to a video of your violation, and pictures from every angle essentially proving unequivocally that you have in fact violated the law.
Well back then I posted the video to my Facebook page when a discussion ensues — and a former city councilman chimes in and tells me I don’t have to pay it. Well I politely told him that I was going to pay it. He told me that NO I really don’t have to because of due process laws and blah blah.
But I told him that there is video (a video that is CLEAR AS DAY) evidence of me running a red light and I was going to pay it.
Then the dude blocked me on Facebook…really?
Anyway you can see my offense below, and the offending argument which merited a full blown Facebook blockage.
Be on the lookout for those speed camera signs y’all. -MS
