I know if there is a sign stating no right on red your gonna get a ticket I got one! But has anyone gotten ticketed for right on red at a rlc intersection with no sign stating you can't make a right on red. Just curious!

This week we are recognizing A_user.

This week you helped update some of Perrdoms projects so that he would not feel overwhelmed when he returns. You are a great man and a loving friend. It is important for us to take care of one another in this community. Even if we don't meet face to face we are still a family.

G3 geomagnetic storm in progress

We've had the first big storm in a long time.. It's classed as a G3.

The reason we should care is that there is the possibility of GPS accuracy being greatly degraded during the solar event. If you've experienced an unusual loss of accuracy today, then this might be the reason.

Got aTicket for Registration Plate Cover

As I mentioned in the Topic, I got a ticket for $65 yesterday.

The car was PARKED.

I think it's ridiculous because it's not a smoke color, it's a clear see-through plastic.

It's one like this on my rear plate

Any ideas? Pay the $65 or fight back?

Can Russia sell home-grown satellite navigation to a country reliant on American GPS?


With the Glonass satellite-navigation constellation nearly complete, Russia's plan to wean itself off the US Global Positioning System (GPS) appears to be coming to fruition.

But Moscow now says it wants the Russian system to work hand-in-hand with GPS rather than being a direct competitor.

New Mexico Advice

Hello folks, got a question...

We are planning a trip to New Mexico over Memorial Day weekend, and since this is our first time out there, we could use some advice from anyone that live there or has been out there before.

Speeders no longer getting 'cushion' of 5 mph

The recession may be claiming a new victim: the 5-10-mph "cushion" police and state troopers across the USA have routinely given motorists exceeding the speed limit.

Best POI Brands?

Is there any brand that seems to have better POIs installed upon purchase?

Forgiven, forgotten, set free!

Forum Navigation

So I've started to contribute to the conversations and noted that if I post a comment, I'm returned to the first post of the thread...

Why not to the end (and most recent post) of the thread so I can proof read my post and any subsequent or simultaneous posts?

Or is that an option in my account I haven't realized?

Thanx in advance
