    The downside occurs when a ticket arrives in the mail with your name on it. It happened to Giff Nickol. He says he was driving fast on wet pavement in Baltimore when the traffic light turned from green to amber.

    Nickol decided to go through the intersection, but the light turned red, and he got a ticket citing photographic evidence at the intersection. Nickol fought it, and won.

    Um, Giff- you’re a real hero for not endangering lives by slamming on the brakes in wet conditions. Not so much of a hero for driving faster than conditions safely permit, however.
