    Re: More speed cameras coming your way!


    "Sheriff Bill McCarthy, who sought and received permission to obtain mobile speed cameras over the summer, said Polk leaders still need to negotiate with a company that will provide two or three free cameras to his department in exchange for a share of the fines."

    This should tell you everything you need to know. It's all a business.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: More speed cameras coming your way!

    One mph over the limit is a joke and would never hold up in court. Most cars and speedometers are not that accurate and that's why cops will give you a warning most of the time for up to 5 mph. The easy way for DSM to get rid of these cameras is too not pay the fines. They are not a criminal offense but a civil fine and they can't do much to enforce. Many cities like Pheonix and LA have been getting rid of the cameras due to the fact that they started loosing money with so many people not paying. However, the one thing they will probably try is to take it out of your Iowa tax return if you owe money.

    Good luck. The State isn't a middleman in this case like getting a ticket from an actual officer. The City is the middleman and doesn't have State taxing power.

    This is all you need to know. Last I heard, automakers only have to be accurate to +/- 3mph so there is no way that that anyone can get away with enforcing that.

    Oh, and for the record, I will no longer go anywhere near Windor Heights and I am sure I am not the only one. If you own a business in Windsor Heights, you are getting screwed here.

    Re: More speed cameras coming your way!

    So if I go 16 mph or over I could get away with it?

    If I get a ticket for going 1 mph over the limit I will go back to the camera and smash it into the ground with a bat.

    Lol, I also hear that burning tires, pellet guns, lots of things to take out your frustration with. I forget where but it got so common that they put up cameras to watch the cameras as they were being damaged so often. Pretty sure that was in Britain.

    Maybe they put the new camera in view of the original camera?

    That is the same thing as saying this: "who watches the Watchmen?"

    Not when you shoot it from a distance for target practice.
