So i got stopped for running a red light today while on the way from the dentist to work. The cop who struggled with reading my (dutch government issued!!) id card asked me at some point if i wanted to make a statement regarding the reasons for running the red light, to which i replied that id do run every second red light and that this happened to be one of them. She politely asked if i wanted her to write this down in the incident report which i confirmed. Unfortunately it turns out that my statement was a bit of a twisted description of my actual behavior: on the rest of mty rout e to work i actually ran all 8 red traffic lights that i came across…

[btw can someone explain me why the price for running a red light has suddenly doubled from €25 to €50]
