Downtown Denver has a lot of traffic.
There are street signs at the corner of every intersection and traffic lights at most four way stops. I have to travel through Denver frequently, because I am a delivery driver for a cannabis dispensary. The cannabis dispensary services most of the Denver area and 80% of our orders are sent downtown. I had a couple of orders last Friday and I was stuck in traffic most of the day. I got stuck behind a driver on the interstate and the person kept switching lanes every time I tried to pass. When I turned off the interstate, the other driver followed me. I should have stopped at the red light at the end of the off-ramp, but I decided to run the yellow so I wouldn’t be stuck next to the other driver. I saw the flash as soon as I ran the light. I knew the traffic camera caught me running the red light. A couple of days later, I received a traffic ticket in the mail. There was a picture of me on the downtown Denver traffic camera and the light was clearly red. I didn’t have any excuse not to pay the ticket. I tried to get my boss at the cannabis dispensary to pay the fees, but he wouldn’t agree. He told me to slow down and obey the traffic signs so I don’t end up with lots of points on my license. If I get more than six, I can’t drive for the cannabis shop legally. I would need to attend traffic school first.
