because achieving happiness is a journey, not a destination

Under the Gun

Yesterday I was riding I-280, killing time and having fun until I needed to be at Ray Mueller’s meet -and-greet in San Carlos. The traffic was going maybe 10 MPH more than the speed limit but no one was going bizarrely fast.

All of a sudden, though, it slowed down even more. The source of the change was a CHP officer working a radar gun just south of the CA-92 interchange. Being in the midst of a pack of cars I slowed down, too.

As I was doing so I noticed the shifting geometry of the vehicles around me briefly opened up a sight-line to the officer’s vehicle…through which I could see he was pointing his radar gun right at me.

Sometimes it’s nice to be noticed. And sometimes not :).
