That New Tunnel

I’ve driven through that new tunnel a few times. It doesn’t feel so generous any more. Now that they charge a toll.

And there was that episode with the ten thousand fines. Ten thousand fines sent out by speed cameras. People were ringing the radio station saying, I’m sure I didn’t speed! In the end they cancelled all the tickets. But still. The atmosphere has changed. Driving into the tunnel you sense something hushed and fearful. Brake lights flare up ahead. Cars seem to cower along.
