I heard about this man who drove into an intersection, which was being monitored by a camera. If anyone exceeds the speed limit, or breaks the law in any way, it will take his or her photograph, and he or she will receive a ticket in the mail as punishment within a few days.
Being a previous offender himself, the man went through the intersection very slowly and carefully, to avoid breaking the law and getting penalized again. But, to his surprise, the camera flashed, and he said ‘this cannot be right, the camera shouldn’t have flashed. After all, I drove my car far below the prescribed speed limit. I am sure something went wrong somewhere’.
Immediately, he turned his car round, and drove through the same intersection even more slowly. Once again, the camera flashed, and took his photograph. At that time, he shouted ‘this camera has really gone mad. Why should it flash against a law abiding citizen? I am going to challenge this injustice in court to the highest level’.
So, out of spite, and in order to ‘gather enough facts’ against the government, he turned his car round, and drove through the intersection three more times, each time he went ridiculously below the speed limit, waved at the camera, stuck out his tongue, and grinned from ear to ear. Having satisfied himself to the hilt, he went home to relax, and ruminate over the possibility of challenging and defeating the government once and for all, as well as winning a generous compensation in the end. He even thought about what he would spend his compensation on.
Three days later, he received five (5) tickets in the mail for driving his car without using his seat belt.
