A way to raise money, awareness
I recently was photographed going through a red light in an unfamiliar state whose left-turn lights work completely differently from those of my own state. I had a nice ticket waiting for me when I got back home, including a photo of the guilty party as well as my license plate.
Can this locality be doing anything other than raising money when charging me $335 for that accidental infraction?
Well, maybe. I sure learned my lesson after the flashing lights almost blinded me. Laura Kotrosa Leesburg, Va.
