Jack was eagerly waiting at the red light, his foot barely on the brake anticipating the green light to strike, wanting to speed off, but he couldn’t. He, like everyone else had to wait his turn in the light cycle and of course this irked him. He had a need for speed and he wanted oh so badly to run that red light. Finally the light changed and he sped away onto the on-ramp of the freeway, where he awaited yet again another red light. After going through the struggle of containing his need for speed, he ended up in bumper to bumper traffic.
He released a massive scream knowing that he now has to wait in this endless traffic, or did he? Jack knows that he is better than everyone else and decides to take the shoulder past all the traffic. He passes each car giving them the bird, and saying, “ Ha Ha suckers! Jack’s the best! “
Although he thought he got away with passing through all the traffic on the 210 freeway, no one is above the law. As soon as he passed the third exit he saw the bright red and blue lights flashing and the sirens blaring. “ Oh no this is not how this is going to end,” Jack says. He speeds up hoping to outrun the cops, and then soon realizes they have a helicopter following him. He takes a second to evaluate his options and realizes there are none and he is completely out of luck. Knowing this he decides to pull over and deal with the consequences. After all he did get away with a little mischief right?
