    Re: Speed camera violation

    The simple answer is don't go 11 MPH over the speed limit...

    That's a really good question.

    I'm sure not paying will go great until next time your registration is due.

    Re: Speed camera violation

    Well, there are signs before the radar sites showing that the speed limits enforced by automation. Those would have given the sites away.

    You're speeding excessively if you're going 11+ mph over the limit on 235 and deserve the fines. The cameras don't issue tickets unless you're at least 11 over.

    Be a good serf and send in your money. Who needs to face their accuser? Besides, the revenuers need the money. So they can put up more cameras, so they can employ more people, so they can send out more tickets, so they can put up more cameras.......

    Don't speed excessively and you won't have these problems.

    Can I rob a store and complain about the camera catching me too?

    I wouldnt necessarily call it excessive driving through there (the speed limits should be higher, imo), but yeah, pretty easy to not get caught going through there.

    Speed limit at the cameras is 60mph. You must be traveling 71mph or faster to be issued a citation. The area just east of the cameras is a curve with low visibility if traffic is slowed or a vehicle is on the shoulder.

    Amazing how many people I see going over 71 mph through that stretch. There must be a lot of tickets issued each day.

    Only if we're lucky. Hopefully that would reduce the number of idiots out there risking the safety of my family. There is no reason to be going over 70mph through town.

    There are plenty of reasons to go that fast, mainly emergencies. That is why the speed cameras are a bunch of ****. There is no discretion at all.

    This logic is dumb. Stealing is a legitimate crime. Speeding tickets are just a BS rule the government invented to pay bills.
