18th and Eads St in Arlington

Arlington, VirginiaDec 22, 20141 Comments

As the car in front of me and I stopped, then turned right onto Eads St. from 18th a cop pulled us both over. He came right towards me and almost hit me. He was waiting like a tiger ready to spring. It was dark (5:30 at night) and raining and when I asked what I had done he said I turned right on red in a “no right on red from 7am-7pm” zone, a sign I did not see at all. He clearly sits and catches people here–especially in the dark and rain.

The same thing happened to me in September. The policemen sit in a parking garage waiting for poor schmucks who turn on red at 18th and Eads -- at a slow speed,, after stopping and looking. There is very little traffic. I started laughing at him -- c'mon, you are kidding me, right. He had a story all ready to go: "this is the second most dangerous intersection in the county." Really, I'd love to see that data. Highly unlikely. A very sad, unecessary way to rip off citizens.
