Devil Camera

The Devil made me do it

Just when you thought you were finally safe to roam the streets without those pesky red light cameras keeping track of your precarious intersection crossings… well, think again. Don’t panic, not yet anyway. Someone in Sacramento, Assemblyman Bob Wieckowski, has introduced a new bill – AB 666 also knows as the “Devil’s Bill” (was this [...]

Dismissing Your Traffic Tickets

And so this is Christmas

Yes I know, another song reference but it seems befitting at this time. If you are familiar with John Lennon’s lyrics then you will understand.
