It’s a camera and it just flashed

There’s one slight thing that I didn’t mention from the trip to San Francisco with G-man over the weekend.

Thankfully the moment we got to the car, he immediately took the keys and offered to drive. I’m not one to object, especially since he’s been living in Hawaii, his driving has slowed way down. The speed limit there is 55 mph so whenever he comes to the mainland he barely goes 65 and feels like he’s speeding while everyone’s flying by him. It’s actually quite hilarious when I have to remind him he needs to go faster.

As we’re driving through the city after breakfast, he goes his meager speed when we come up on a left turn light that’s green. He and the car next to us speed up to catch it and the closer we get; it turns yellow. As G-man begins to accelerate the car next to us brakes suddenly and stops as we barrel through.

At that moment, the light turns red. I scan all around on the chance a cop may be sitting at the intersection simultaneously looking for one of those traffic cameras. We’re clear!!

Then, flash.

Sitting tall on the corner where we’re turning into, is the camera. I’m pretty sure it caught me pointing at it when it took the picture saying, ‘there it is!!’

So now I wait. Wait to see if I get something in the mail with the pretty picture of us in the car. Wait to see if there’s a way to get out of the ticket since I wasn’t the one driving after all. Wait to see if I’m going to rat out G-man as the driver….ooooh, I can’t wait to see what happens! muahahaha – evil laugh there…

We can’t figure out what got into him at that moment and both agreed we noticed the car braking and wondered why he stopped so abruptly. Clearly he knew what we didn’t and I can only imagine him laughing at us as he saw the flash, himself.

Oh silly traffic cameras, why do you mess with us, so!?

Pin It Now!

Hope you don't get a ticket... Or I would just rat out G-man if I were you! (lol!) We don't have traffic cameras around here, so I only have to be on the lookout for cops =)

He just gets to plead, "It wasn't my car and I'm from out of town!" That will most certainly clear him. Hopefully, at least!

I hate to say I had a good chuckle at y'all's expense...but I'm afraid I did. Only because I could see it happening to my husband and I!
