I have a 6 minute drive to work. During school season, I have an 11 minute drive to work. I pass thru 4 different school zones causing the difference. Gotta be slow for the tiny humans. I get it. Mine were tiny once. Now I have what has been called a lead foot when it comes to driving, but I also have an aversion to traffic tickets, especially ones that have artificially inflated fines because of where I happen to be speeding at, like school zones. So I drive the stupid 20 mph thru all these zones. And I get pissed off when I see people passing me by at 40+ without a care in the world! I get so tempted to just follow them, but I just know that I will be the one the cop singles out just at the end of the zone. So I don’t, and every day wish for the boots of justice to come slamming down on these school zone scofflaws.
Then today I see a cop at the far end of the school zone. Awesome! I swear I might see them there maybe once a month. if they would be here daily they cold rake in a fortune! Maybe somebody will get pulled over today that isn’t me! As I slow to the school speed I get passed by one car AND a school bus, both going the otherwise normal speed of 40 mph. I stayed at 20 mph. The damn cop did NOTHING! Fuck you, popo!
