I’ve gotten used to the fact that when a traffic signal turns green, I have to wait on all the cars running the red light before I proceed. I’ve gotten used to people running stop signs, too.
But I was shocked and dismayed when I was at 103rd and Nall on June 30 and watched car after car turn left in front of a police car with its lights and siren on. The police car had to wait because at least six people thought wherever they were going was more important than the emergency the police officer was responding to.
Bring on those traffic cameras. If you’re worried you might get a ticket because of them, then slow down and obey traffic laws.
And don’t lend your car to someone who might break those laws, because you’ll be the one paying the ticket.
