| O-T Lounge|| Help me spec a tablet - thanks, OT! - Spirit of Dunson on 5/16/13 at 9:38 am|
I would like a new tablet - mostly for reading and surfing the net. Unfortunately, I don't follow this technology very much, so don't know what is out there for me. So, I come to the OT for its crowd-sourcing wisdom.
Ideally, it would have a USB port to upload my garmin info and whatnot.

I got one of these bad boys today. Only thing is... I was taking a legal right turn at a red light.
I even drove by the spot today to make sure that I didn't miss a sign that says no right turn on red, or right turn on arrow only. No such signs.
Do I just ask for a hearing and tell them WTF?...
