frequent toll booth...

cube Highway #407 running across the north of Toronto openned a couple of years ago. It's a toll highway which uses radio telemetry to identify users. If you don't have a transmitter, cameras placed at the on and off ramps capture license plate numbers for identification.

At first i thought i could beat this. I'd heard that the cameras didn't work at speeds above 160 Kph (100 mph). Being a rebel at heart, i made a game of it. I drive a high-powered land yacht and figured i'd pay if they could catch me. For good measure, i always made it through the lights at least 10% faster.

Things like brake wear and the cost of premium fuel being sucked through a supercharged engine at full boost just don't factor into this. This was cops and robbers for the terminally adolescent. For those few months of rebellion i'm sure i payed twice what i would have if i'd just picked up the damned transmitter...

me i went for a walk the other day. or night. it was 4am, on a monday night, when everyone is asleep. tuesdays are good too, but mondays are best. i went to the freeway at 4am, and there wasnt a soul on it. i pulled over to the side of the highway, and turned off my car. then i got out and went for a short walk.

its something else. its one thing to see and everyday object from an everyday point of view, but another to see an object from another point of view. i felt small, and unbounde,d like i could walk in any direction as long as i wanted. only one car came, and just sprinted off the road and ducked behind some bushes.
