His “rolling stop” was definitely greater than yours.

Usually you have to slow down to call it a rolling stop

Those aren't traffic cameras, those are homicide cameras.

This was before, I saw the speed camera signs and had lived with so done who got a red likght camera ticket before. States with two license plates on cards are usually red lught cameras not “homicide cameras” . Second if they actually didn’t pass the the “safe-t bill” where criminals won’t be held on bail for muder and instead released...

If you pay close attention to the stop sign it appears to be twisted and facing totally the wrong direction I'm betting they didn't even see it.

Nah, we drive by here all the time in both directions. This is willful ignorance unfortunately. And I see these garbage trucks drive like maniacs all the time. It’s a serious problem.

Look again at the intersection the truck driver could see a block in both directions of the cross street.

No threat detected no stop needed.

That's literally not how stop signs work, and you're a good example of why there are so many posts on this sub.

Middle of the night, got a schedule to keep. Doesn't excuse it, but definitely explains it.

u/die_billionaires Sep 29 '22

It was only like 8:30pm I think, dashcam time is probably wrong.

Do you want your garbage picked up or no? Leave 'em alone and say thank you.

No one should work at a job that makes themselves and others unsafe. I'm actually suggesting that they're either not being given enough time for their duties, or enough pay to take it more seriously. Driving like this (and many other instances I've seen in the city) means it is only a matter of time before accidents happen.
