Speed cameras are the devil. Maryland has recently decided to get all speed camera happy and I swear to god.. we get a ticket in the mail like every month.
My most favorite (recent) tickets...
1. Going 30 in a 25 MPH school zone at 6:30 PM on a Saturday night. Seriously, are you freakin' kidding me?!?!?
a). There is no school on Saturdays
b). You are really going to charge me forty dollars for going 30 MPH?
2. Getting a 75 dollar ticket for running a red light that I DIDN'T run. It just looks like I ran it because I was driving during a torrential downpour/monsoon last Thursday and the cars in front of me stopped suddenly and an inch of my tail end remained in the intersection. Really!?!?!? That's my fault? Mother nature should have to pay that bill..
The worst part-- you can't even argue with the traffic gods anymore. They won't let you off the hook for anything (inspired by mother nature or not).
Basically, I need to start driving like a grandma- go 25 MPH at all times- to avoid paying Maryland like 233432 dollars per year. Personally, I THINK that grandmas cause more accidents, but what the F ever.
