    My fiance recently got caught going too fast by the automated police car in Windsor Heights. Is there a way to get out of these? Has anyone had any success fighting it in Iowa?

    You don't have to get out of it. If it's your first, throw it away.

    You an always take your day in court. Whenever I get a ticket I figure I am already paying court fees so I will waste other people's time as well. Basically, just learn where those dumb things are and dont speed around them

    New identities, you are now Adam Greenberg, your wife is Linda, you just moved here from Poughkeepsie. You're a latex salesman and she is a hair dresser. Never look back. Never.

    Keep in mind, wasting everyone else's time also wastes yours. If you're good with that, so be it. My suggestion would be mail them a damn check and obey the stinkin limit unless you enjoyed sending the check the first time.

    No insurance impact, so pay and move along.

    Automated traffic enforcement does not go on your record, so it does not affect insurance. You will probably spend the same amount of money (or more) fighting it, so i would recommend just paying and moving on.

    It's not even about obeying the speed limit. Don't you have to be going an absurd amount over the limit to get a camera ticket?

    I always thought it was 11 mph over the limit but I'm not for sure on that.

    I don't eat Cheerios but I do seem to hearing lots others sayin the same thing. I also have a cop friend who often posts on FB about all the excuses he hears and I'm on his side at this point. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.

    That's on 235. I've heard Windsor Heights you can get a ticket from these things if you're going 1 over (though I'm not sure how true that is)
