Every morning I drive to work, I have to take this one annoying road.
It’s about 5 km long.
The speed limit is 70km/h.
This is hardly a matter of safety.
The town who borders the road is populated by rich people.
They simply didn’t like the sound of speeding cars and payed a lot of money to make sure they speed camera’s would be there.
Now usually, at 6:00 in the morning I would ignore these, but this particular road is full of speed camera’s.
I do know where they are located, but it’s too much of a hassle to slow down after ever couple of hundred meters.
Instead I am enjoying my morning coffee and laughing at cars who are ignore the speed limit and will definitely get at ticket.
Some do know where they are and go up and down in speed.
At almost end the end of the road there is one more traffic light before a very busy highway.
This is where everyone is rushing to get into the left lane.
This last part is indicated with speed limit of 50 km/h, but since there are no speed camera’s, that’s when everyone speeds up way more than they should.
People are hypocrites.
And I am guilty too.
You’re only really a “criminal” if you get caught, right?
Then again, the government is too.
What do you think, is the government shaping us or are we shaping them?
Do you think speed limits and camera’s are always a matter of safety?
