We need more Stephen Ruths in this world. God bless him.
@Jeffyg3, Good idea - from that article, it sounds like we’ll be needing a replacement one soon.
So not only with the questionable legality of using cameras for citations, they shortened the light time to make it entrapment, which caused deaths to make it reckless endangerment or even manslaughter. Somebody better go to jail for life for this one.
@ThePandaPool , Probably not gonna happen, and it’s not the only place this occurs. There’s a man in Oregon who was being sued a few years ago by their board of engineers or some shît, because he did the math on the lights with cameras and found the same issue. He wrote a report about it, and referred to himself as an engineer, because he has a fvcking degree in engineering, but because he’s not credentialed as an engineer in Oregon (or whatever state he was in), they’re bringing charges against him. They also set up one of these near my house, and I know without a doubt that the lights change much quicker now.
@Berntley, just another way to tax the poor. It should be legal to drag these people into the street and pummel them.
@ThePandaPool , Yep. This is why we vote, for posterity’s sake, but also start building guillotines in every town square. Give these public servants something to think about when they’re walking into they’re building every other week, or however often they actually show up to do their jobs.
@Berntley, i'm down. Let's make this happen.
@ThePandaPool , And thus, a most unlikely alliance was formed
What a fecking legend
Godspeed, you vigilante patriot.
@RichardTheLionheart , Godspeed you magnificent bastard
New York man is more valiant than Florida man
@Beefy Jones, we're assholes in NY, but this kind of shjt is the reason.
This story was wild start to finish
This guy is awesome.
That is the wildest story I've read tonight.
That’s what the government wants you to believe
Mmm... Tumblr-facts. Been fake before, no source. Pressing X to Doubt.
AMERICA!! Fvck YEAH
Someone clarify to me what the spotlights do. I’m a bit confused
@Larry The Garry, They let you know if you're allowed to pass through the intersection. Green: Go ahead. Yellow: Red's coming up. Red: Only turn right.
@Jdrawer, huh... never came across one
@Larry The Garry, Where're you from and how do they handle intersections, if you don't mind me asking?
@Jdrawer, 🤦🏻♂️he’s saying *spotlight...
@Jdrawer, the typical pressure plates to stop and go traffic most lights have a standard switching time specific to the distance of the intersection
@big freedom, Seeing as the word "spotlight" was never used in the picture but "stoplight" was used multiple times, the reasonable assumption is that he meant "stoplight," isn't it?
@Jdrawer, I may have been, until he doubled down on his joke.
