The Daily Ping

Not a toilet in the country has not been affected by the Ping in one way or another.

Speed Cameras

A certain famous Daily Pinger recently twittered about getting his photo taken by a speed camera in Maryland and subsequently getting a $40 ticket. Has anyone else here ever been snagged by a speed camera or a traffic camera (running a red light, say?).

I’ve had plenty of “oh shit, did I just see that traffic camera flash?” moments, but have never actually received a ticket.

I just got busted for the first time for running a toll in California. Apparently, the toll lady didn’t finish the transaction before I went through, and the flash happened. Dunno if there’s any way to challenge that, considering I didn’t get a receipt for payment. Grr..

Although I’ve never gotten hit by the red light scam…er…CAM…my mom did last year in Delaware. For someone who has never gotten a ticket in all her years driving, I tend to believe her when she said it was still yellow. She was mortified to find a $75 ticket in her mailbox.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
