    Mobile Speed camera out in CR

    CRPD Radar Car Catches Hundreds of Speeders | KCRG-TV9 | Cedar Rapids, Iowa News, Sports, and Weather | Local News

    KGAN CBS 2 :: Top Stories

    According to the second link they will even be issuing tickets for going 1 mph over the speed limit.

    A commenter in the first link says it may be a red jeep Cherokee but no positive ID on it yet as far as I can tell.

    How can they even issue tickets for 1mph over? they have a margin of error, as does your spedometer.

    Honestly I find it hard to believe they will give out tickets for that minor of a infraction. But until they start getting mailed out and people complain there will be no way to know for sure.

    Re: Mobile Speed camera out in CR

    I could understand if they set these at 15+ over or something. <5 is even more blatant revenue generation than normal.

    You dont have to pay it, unless you plan on being back in Arizona soon.

    1 mph over would never stand up in court.

    I wasn't driving at the time but it sounds like they have recently made a ruling in AZ that they can't give these tickets anymore so it is probably getting dropped.

    Re: Mobile Speed camera out in CR

    They do mention that an officer will review each case to see if a ticket needs to be given. Hopefully that will take care of the <5 mph group. I do find it kind of curious that they identified school zones. Does that mean that they are worried about elementary schools where you have kids crossing the street and that speed limit really needs enforced? Or are they targeting high schools where they are trying to get the 16-18 year olds who can't vote yet.

    Most likely high schools... so they can do that and yet claim 'we're doing it near schools' and everyone will think of the elementary schools.
