Cop in Sheeps' Clothing

CNN just showed a report from West Palm Beach, Fl of a cop posing as a homeless guy on a corner of a busy intersection. He stands there like a "panhandler" with a sign - "can you spare $183.00?" That's the fine if you run through the light/intersection he's monitoring. He got 75 people in one hour. He has counterparts on cycles down the road he calls when he spots car(s) blasting through intersection when light changes. I'm to lazy but there's a video link at CNN.com

from my understanding, people in miami stop on red if they have time, which they never do.

Some of the people I see running red are so clearly past yellow they deserve whatever. I mean, why have the lights if they mean nothing?

im going with lucky. not only is he lucky that he made it thru, but he is lucky that no ones elses reactions (or lack thereof) caused an accident either. that one suv just hit the break for a second, then kept on going.

That clip was crazy. My brother does that shit! It pisses me off! People running red lights is getting to be too often. The thing with the traffic cameras I think is good thing, but if it is causing traffic problems than people should just slow down. Take it fom me. Where I live I got flashed from a speed camera that was hidden in van that was sitting on the side of an autobahn. Honestly though stupid things such as running red lights is irresponsibility of the driver. Even with speeding and racing should still have understandings not to endanger the rest of the people on the roads or highways.
