got stopped by the VPD today for running a red light and possible speeding (w33rd/arbutus).
i was the last car following a string of other motorists trying to pass on the right of a slow-moving backhoe that wouldn't use the slow lane. i was 99.9% sure the light was a solid green. my car has no cats (only a small non-oem 100 cell) so it's not quiet either, but i wasn't paying attention to my speed because i was pacing the car in front of me.
while he was chewing me out (he said it was definitely red), his partner ran my DL and my records should have me as relatively clean (illegal front tint 5 years ago, left turn during prohibited hours 7 years ago).
he had his ticket book out but i thought i heard an emergency call coming over his radio so i think he decided to cut things short. he then said he was giving me only a verbal warning and a "three-one (3-1)"?
... what is a three-one? three strikes and i've just used up one? points on my license?
