Damn Red Light Cameras
I hate the City of Chicago. I don't mean the actual city of Chicago. I mean the bastards who put these cameras up. They've cost me $200 already in tickets. I'm usually very cautious, really. But somehow they caught me slipping. I guess I must have been in a hurry on my way to work. Or maybe I was blinded by the glare of the early morning sunrise. Whatever it was, I was caught running a red light. I was mad. I didn't believe it until I went to their site and actually WATCHED THE VIDEO OF ME IN MY CAR RUNNING THE RED LIGHT. You can't argue with streaming video. It's pretty damn frustrating, but it's also an amazing piece of technology.
