Side By Side


I was always curious about how exactly do the speed cameras decide which car is speeding when they are side by side and one is going a lot faster, so it seems I will be getting my answer soon. One woman driving Chevy Tahoe on Fahaheel Expressway (30), she was driving really aggressively when there were a lot of cars on the road, she would flash and honk, and what surprised me is that she is muhajabah, and she had kids in the car, I would think she would be more composed instead of driving like a maniac. I was on my way to Wafra for lunch, going at about 120 kmh since there were cars in front of me and around, enjoying some new playlists that I put together and a few oldies as well. After a while there was a stretch of open road on my right, and that lady tried several times to nagivate from the other lanes to get ahead but failed, so when she saw the open lanes she hit the gas and took off, I could see her coming up quick in the middle lane and no cars in front of her. I saw the speed camera up front and slow down a bit to signal her but she was a woman on a mission. The moment she passed me was the moment we were both passed the speeding camera and it flashed, and she continued to fly as if nothing happened. Now I will find out how accurate these cameras are if I get the ticket, then I am pretty much screwed because you can’t do anything about it in Kuwait and I think I have some points racked up meaning that I would lose my license for a while which is a strange thing in Kuwait, but time will tell. Knowing the MOI it will take at least 4 to 6 months before it shows in the system and if it doesn’t then I’m in the clear and those cameras work right, and if I do get a ticket then I’m taking a shot gun to those cameras and giving them a few more holes to see better.
