[ENG] Cordon multi-target photo-radar system leaves no car untagged - Page 4

post #31 of 34
In california, a police officer has to physically give you the ticket and for you to sign it, thats why when they mail you those things, throw them away and say they probably got lost in the mail. Then theyll probably send servers to serve you the ticket but then again, its not illegal to not be there when they try to ring the doorbell. after 90 days poof! the "citation" is gone.

the stupidest thing for people to do is to sign the paper (basically a confession) then mail it back. Because after you do that, you give up your right to be perosnally handed the citation, and then, after you confess, then they mail you the actual ticket, the initial letter asking you to sign and to mail back a photocopy of your DL is not from any goverment institution, its from a private company telling you to confess and mail back a pic of your DL as evidence so they could hand them to the police so then after that, the police can mail your the ticket

The whole tickets and fines system needs a revamp in my opinion. Its silly how someone that's only making $100 a week pays the same fine that a billionaire would. But that's a whole another discussion.

They already have speeding camera trucks on the interstate highways in MD, PA, VA, NJ, DE. Specially in the MD area we have these jeep liberties with 2 huge 1000w flashes that take a pic of your tag if you speed, however it doesn't have this technology as they only can catch one at a time as of now.

But either way these are more dangerous then they are good because in a 65mph zone traffic stays a nice pace of about 75-80mph. If you're driving 65mph on the highway you are being reckless at that point because you are driving to slowly.

When traffic gets close to one of these things they slam on their brakes like 30 seconds before they pass so they don't get a ticket. I see this all the time and it's rather hazardous.

Here is an article about them.

Here is a small quote:
Quote:
Under Maryland law governing workzone speed cameras, workzone cameras can issue tickets 24/7 "regardless of whether workers are present", and over 70% of SHA workzone camera tickets have been issued when no work was taking place. The SHA website shows that between November 2009 and May 31, 2011 the state's 6 freeway cameras have issued over 566,000 citations worth over $22million.
Edit:
Oh wow I didn't know this:

Quote:
The speed cameras are NOT operated by sworn police officers. Instead this is outsourced to a private company. For example, under Montgomery county's contract ACS receives a $16.25 per ticket commission from these cameras, despite the fact that this violates a provision of state law intended to forbid paying contractors based on the number of citations issued or paid. For a long time the county refused requests to release the full details of their contract with ACS to the public. Now most other speed camera programs in the state use similar arrangements(including most local programs in Prince George's County, Frederick City, and Baltimore City), turning over almost total control of the cameras and the ticket program to contractors who get paid a cut of every ticket. Per ticket commissions could encourage the contractor to cheat in order to maximize the number of tickets rather than safety, operate inaccurate cameras, or create barriers to legitimate ticket challenges. Essentially the contractor which generates the evidence used in court cases gets paid only if the defendant is found guilty, a clear conflict of interest. Moreover, the fact that local governments have circumvented this part of the law simply to guarantee a revenue stream brings into question whether ANY limitations will be respected.
But I'm honestly not that surprised
