Seattle Times - Hey No Cutting In Line

There is actually a place now where you can get a ticket for cutting in line in front of other cars when lanes are merging. From the article:


"They love us here," says (Officer) Rodgers. "Not many people love a traffic officer. We get public reinforcement, and we come back." Whenever the crackdown is on, people honk, wave, give thumbs up and sometimes stop to tattle on the cheaters.

Most drivers inch down the left lane toward the ramp, watching the moss grow on the elevated Spokane Street roadway. But others cruise in the open right lane — headed toward Beacon Hill — then troll for a spot in the left lane.


Anyone else happy to see these drivers get nailed? It's just a shame that $100 tickets can't be issued to all rude folks in life. But at least it's a start. Now if we could just get them add some community service to the $100 fine, then I'd be even more pleased.
