Not speed trap related but driving ignorance.  I would love to have the 
ticket concession at the intersection of Nut Tree Parkway and Ulatis Drive 
here in Vacaville.

It is against state law to make a turn against a red arrow traffic light. 
As you approach this intersection westbound, there are two signs before the 
intersection that say "NO TURN ON RED".  There is a third sign hanging 
beside the traffic lights over the roadway.  Yet drivers regularly make a 
right turn against the red light.  Sometimes there is a motorcycle officer 
there and I am sure that if he had a quota (I'm not saying, mind you....), 
he would easily exceed it quickly.

A resident of Petaluma had the audacity to write a letter to the editor of 
the local newspaper complaining about the ($375) ticket he got and vowing to 
boycott Vacaville and the factory stores he came to visit.  Not only did he 
get the ticket for breaking the law, he publicized his lack of knowledge of 
the law for all to see.

By the way, I have not seen any Healey drivers make this mistake! (Healey
