Speeders and Tickets

This morning after dropping off Koa at school, I was driving on the street in the 25 mph school zone when someone in a pickup truck was coming up behind me, perhaps driving at 40 mph. I was hoping that there was a police car waiting on the side of the road (as they often are here), but there wasn’t. However, I saw a police cruiser coming the other direction. As we passed by each other, I glanced in the rear-view mirror and saw him make a U-turn, then he pulled right behind the truck. At the next intersection, the lights on top of the cruiser lit up and the truck pulled over. I almost cheered when those lights came on!

I might be in the minority on this, but I love to see people get pulled over for speeding, especially in school zones and residential neighborhoods. I mean, it’s really dangerous and there’s no good excuse to be speeding in places where kids or pets could be crossing the street. Sometimes I’m driving at the speed limit of 30 or 35 mph and someone starts tailgating me, and might even flash their high-beams. I used to get upset at this, but now I realize it’s not my problem. It’s their problem and not worth my time. Plus, there’s no way in hell that I am going to get a speeding ticket because of some jerk tailgating me in the neighborhood.

Today’s photo is of some signs at Bay’s high school which I thought were funny. Since Bay is graduating soon, this might have been my last chance to take a photo of it. ☺🐷

I hope you had a good day!

  1. When people turn on their high beams to make me go faster, I slow down and put on my night driving glasses. I’m a new driver with an already high insurance premium. My insurance is more than my monthly payments on my car! I’m not getting a speeding ticket because of them, to make it worse.
