Fog Clock

fogclock9153

The GG toll booth clock in the fog. This is straight from the camera with very little correction - fog in the dark presents a huge noise challenge, but I like the grainy look here.

I can see a day when they take those booths out, maybe put wider lanes in now that the traffic doesn't stop. You still have people that are confused at this point; they slow way down and the loudspeakers will urge them to keep driving. The regulars that know you don't have to stop anymore are screaming through the narrow openings, and that's a eventual crash waiting to happen.

All in all I guess the new system is working OK though. Haven't heard otherwise. I'm tempted to drive through one of these days just to see how the billing works...
