    I will say, as much as I despise these cameras in some ways, I laughed heartily today heading eastbound on Irving, when a guy in an SUV went flying by everyone in the painted parking lane over by Jolly Inn...then I saw him waving angrily at someone going sorta slower as he cut them off right after Narragansett.

    I was like, "Yes, please catch him....please catch him..." and then the flash of the camera by St. Pascal's, and I about cheered aloud. Dude appeared to have no idea either, as he continued to fly on through Austin and hopefully on to another ticket at Portage Park. :)
