    What I saw the other night after 2 AM..

    Here's what happens when a hit-and-run driver slams into a traffic control box.

    This was the only light in the eastbound direction that was lit at all. All the others were off, and one light in the turn pocket from westbound to southbound was stuck on green.

    People were driving right through the intersection without stopping. When a traffic signal malfunctions you're supposed to treat it like a stop sign, but few people did.

    The county got it fixed within the hour, luckily.

    No kidding It's a miracle of God there wasn't an accident during the time the lights were malfunctioning.

    Yeah, that whole rules of the road thing. I don't really think they teach that anymore in the half hour lesson prior to getting the license.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    License? I wouldn't be surprised if at least half the drivers I saw going through that intersection without stopping had no license issued or were suspended.

    It's not just the rules of the road it's common sense, the light looks wrong I should probably take care.

    Why are people such idiots when no one else or nothing else is there to tell them what to do?

    Darwinian theory is alive and well, we just keep screwing with it by keeping these idiots alive way beyond their allotted time.

    We are the thin blue line
    between you
    and all the money in the world.

    And no you can't have any.

    Ive always said there should be a Federal Idiot law.

    If you were born an idiot you can be exempt from the law.

    BUT

    If you strive to be an idiot...into jail you go.
