Saw a great bumper sticker the other day: I DRIVE TOO FAST TO WORRY ABOUT CHOLESTEROL
Haha. It’s funny because it’s true. Anyway, some months back I warned you all about the red-light cameras Colorado Springs was setting up at the city’s most
dangerous profitable intersections.
Well, it was only a matter of time that I was mailed a ticket. I’m surprised, actually, that it’s taken this long. At Platte and Murray, I came to a rolling stop and turned right even though the light was red. In my defense, the light had been red for only 30 or 40 seconds. Who has those kind of reflexes!?
I said before, and I say again, even though losing $75 stings a little, it’s much better than being pulled over by an actual police officer. And I’ll repeat again that getting nabbed by the cameras is half the price of a cop writing you up. A bargain.
So for those of you who might be new to the Springs, or for those of you who might have forgotten about these Sentinels of Safety, here’s a map:
