Been caught speeding

It happened last week, on the way to work. I, so I was told by the good officer, was travelling 55 km/h in a 40 km/h zone. That’ll cost me $56. Up until last Monday, I didn’t realize that a radar gun could pick up my car from about two and a half blocks away. Who knew? Of course, I wasn’t alone. As I was waved to a stop, there was a Dodge pickup waiting to receive its penalty and as I was being “processed” the cops pulled over another car. As I left, two more cars were being pulled over. Not a bad haul for the city’s coffers — and all before 9 a.m.
