Earlier today I was at a stoplight during rush hour. I sat and watched the light turn red then green then red. On each green approximately 5-7 cars were able to get through it. Then it would turn red again for an exceptionally long time. This happened four times.
Finally I was three cars away from the light. It turned green. Yeah!
But the car in front of me wasn't paying attention and got a delayed start. As I approached the corner the light turned yellow.
I decided I was not going to sit through the red for a fifth time and gunned it. It turned red while I was halfway through the intersection.
Then I saw a flash.
It is possible the flash was for the car behind me that definitely ran a red light. But it is also possible that I may have just gotten my first ticket in Switzerland.
I guess I will find out in a month or so. If a bill with a photo of me appears, I was caught. If not, I can breath easy.
Anyone know how much running an "orange" light costs?
