technology... the double-edged sword

So, today I come in and check my mail and in the midst of my bills, flyers, and birthday cards, is something from the Richardson Police Department. Inside is a ticket for running the red light at Coit/Campbell on 07/29 at 3:29pm. There are pictures enclosed, as well as the sentence "this violation was recorded on video and is available to view on the internet." The hell? How can you cry your way out of a ticket if they're doing it this way now?? Grrrrr.

hey, DON'T go and watch the video!!

the law says you have to be served with your violation....and if you never got the one that was mailed to you, then you never got served. if you go watch the video, you've been served.

so throw it away and forget about it.

that's a bummer! does the ticket cost any less, since they didn't have to lift a finger to give it to you? it should be a matter of public record, that tells us how much money they generate at each intersection with those camera's. that, and i would love to see how much money they get daily from the tollways. lol.
