I have seen worse. Keep in mind - we are talking adults with money and jobs (most likely). These guys were just friggen idiots who must have been armed, drunk, stoned, and operating with the stupid switch turned all of the way to friggen-stupid.
Several years ago, I was going to work. It started to rain. The schools were just letting out. I entered the elementary "school zone" with the mandatory 15 miles per hour rule and flashing lights. The car next to me did not slow down. The guy driving actually sped up to make the light.
He ran the light (badly), he ran the light speeding way over 15 MPH over the 15 MPH posted speed (remember the yellow flashing warning lights?). He might have hit the intersection going as fast as 50 MPH - more than twice the posted. There were little kids AT the intersection. "He was traveling too fast for conditions" - sort of "reckless" (that is a legal definition). All of this happened in about 3 seconds. I was stopped at the intersection waiting to go left. He passed me.... as did the cop right behind him.
Trust me when I tell you that guy did not drive away from that group of tickets. I feel he had to have committed 12 points in 5 seconds. That kid of retardation takes skill.
Speeding twice the posted - 5 points
running a red light - 3 points
speeding in a school zone - 4 points
reckless endangerment with special circumstances - 5 points (rain, speeding, school zone, red light) - no more driving.
To further make things worse - the cop was going to be very, very, very pissed at having to deal with an idiot in the rain that could have killed a bunch of kids.
It all started with trying to beat the light because he was in a hurry.
Backing off on the tranqs..... petting puppies instead!
