Speed trap at I-435 and Metcalf got me. Alas. I (and lots of other people) just fail to notice it's gone back to a work zone. Not at all sure WHAT work is being done there to require that, but, the signs ARE there. And I was one of the 'lucky' ones singled out as examples.

AT&T can kiss my rear-end. Little yellow envelopes with 'Official Business' printed on them should NOT end up being spam.

Yeah, Kansas is really asshattish about the 'work zone' thing. Here in Texas, there's a little sign under the 'double fines in work zones' sign that says 'when workers are present'. So, if you're speeding in an area you didn't know was a work zone (because, say, the sign for it was right *before* the exit where you got on the highway, which happened to a friend of mine on K-10 to the tune of several hundred dollars), and you get pulled over, you only get hit with the extra fines if you were actually at risk for endangering someone, not just because ten hours from now there will be a construction crew there.

I mean, it's really easy to see ten guys and an asphalt breaker and know, "Oh, work zone." But if you missed a sign and there were no people or equipment, it's stupid to fine you as if you were a danger to others.

Also, in addition to your AT&T complaint, Geico should not, a year after I requested a quote, still be sending me spammy mail with "Important News About Your Geico Account" printed on the outside. It makes me panic and think, "When the cocksuck did I get a Geico account?"

They will *never* be allowed to be my insurance company, just for that.

Much love,
