HP Gets Pinged!!!... wait for it...

...for going through an ORANGE LIGHT!!!!

Has the constabulary gone mad?? Thats right, last night I got pulled over here in Sydney for going through an Orange light at an intersection. I mean, if I was speeding or tailgating or something dangerous then Id happily cop the consequences (which looks like only a warning as I havent got any other offences previously) but this is crazy! What about the guy sitting two feet off my bumper? What about the guy in front of me driving in both lanes?.... Not happy Jan!

Re: HP Gets Pinged!!!... wait for it...

See if you were part of team galaxy you would not have been pinched Red cars always get pulled over because there so easy to see and make people more aggressive. Its also a true recorded fact. Ahh enough bullSH*T can't you tell im bored. BTW you coming to the canberra meet next year should be some fun.

Also Galaxy Blue does attract the boys in blue i get pulled over and fined last month and got pinched for speeding $200 fine.

You're supposed to treat a Orange like a red. IE: Stop. Unless it is unsafe to do so.

Re: HP Gets Pinged!!!... wait for it...

exactly right Shaft
Treat a oamber light as you would a red
Stop unless not safe to do soo

Soooooooo many people see Amber and speed up, dont want to wait the xtra couple of minutes for the next green, no wonder there are so many accidents where people run reds
by the way, I am not saying thats what you did XR6HP01

Exactly. Except in this case I had a van about two feet off my rear bumper so I didnt consider it safe to stand on the centre pedal. I dont need/want to go replacing another rear bar.... unless its with one of those schmick ones like Dark_Horses or BlueDriver's....
