I was driving down Broadway (don't remember what intersection) last night right before it turned into Congress Street by the I-10 and I saw a flash! I know that I was not speeding (doing about 35) and didn't run any red lights. Do you all know what this might have been? Do you think that it was for someone else, or am I just plum crazy? Thanks.

Possibly lightning, The Kurgan.

While heading towards town from the Dove Mountain area about 8PM last night I noticed a number of lightning flashes.

Ok, thanks Bummer. I was playing softball at Udall Park last night and there was a ton of lightning off towards the mountains. It was pretty spectacular. Is it heat lightning or just a storm off in the distance?

I think I was standing over there last night flashing everybody as cars drove by...

I haven't been in Tucson in 5 years, but those cameras might have been triggered by somebody else going in the opposite direction, or not far ahead or behind you, either speeding or running a red light. I see this in Phoenix also, espeically when driving on freeways at night.

Kurg! Please... you need to be more responsible. Standing around downtown and flashing everybody WILL earn you a trip to the slammer.
