If you're going over the speed limit for that road, they take a snapshot.
They're universally hated.
My town is separated from the rest of the city by a long winding road over a range of small hills. (it's about a 2 minute drive). Several speed cameras have been put up there in the last year or two. One is at the top of the hill, where speeding is most dangerous.
The other one has been erected multiple times because people keep destroying it.
It's at the base of the hill on the city's side, and it causes a lot of unfair tickets because many people have to speed up a bit in that area to encourage their car to begin the uphill climb. My dad managed to get more speeding tickets over Christmas than he has received in the last 30 years.
Some fucking legend shot it with a hunting rifle a few weeks ago.
Before that, someone bashed it with a crowbar.
Before that, someone attached it to a towbar, and drove off.
It's sort of become a town-wide sport.

of course it is. It is your car (as in, you're registered as an owner) and you're responsible for it. If it wasn't you who were speeding, you can "redicrect" the ticket to the one who was driving it, ofc he has to admit to it. The other side of it is that you can cheat. Not sure about US, but in Europe we have "points" we earn for tickets (ofc it depends on what you did) and if you have enough in a year (22 I think?) you lose your driver's license for some time. My cousin once said it was me who was driving his car, I got his points and he paid the ticket himself

NOT in most US states... here like 80% of traffic camera cases that are fought in court are simply thrown out.. because the burden of proof rest on the state... so unless it causes an accident, or you are otherwise personally identified.. they simply cant treat it as a criminal offense...

So get out on a track and do it where you're the only one that can get hurt.
It'll also help you actually become a good driver.

I drive fast and I'm a great driver. I'm not ignorant of risks or taking things for granted, I'm just aware of my abilities, limits, and when road conditions don't demand lower speeds. Speed limits are designed to make driving manageable for the worst driver who might end up on that stretch of road, so even an average driver could probably navigate it safely at higher speeds.
"Hurr durr just follow the law" is a retarded argument because not all laws are good and no law is absolute. That's why they're all subject to reinterpretation, update, repeal, and change.

But you also have to understand, you can't plan for every contingency, which is often what speed limits reflect. ie, animal appearances, blind corners that could have chit.
I wouldn't say I drive slow, but I wouldn't say I drive fast either. Patience is a virtue and all that.
#102 - masanori (04/08/2016) [-]
But that's all part of the situational awareness involved. Am I in a populated area? Are there trees, curves, or hills obstructing my view of what's up ahead so I don't see a deer, a kid, a hidden driveway? Is this a busy street? What time of day is it? Are people/animals likely to be around?
A deer once jumped out less than 20 feet in front of my truck and I still avoided it. In the last two years I've avoided several accidents that most people probably wouldn't have seen coming at all. I'm not just pushing the pedal down and praying, I know what I'm doing.

If everyone else is speeding one more wont make a difference. In fact if you don't speed along with everyone else cops here can ticket you for "failing to keep up with traffic". Or they could ticket you for speeding. Depends on where you are. The laws are designed to make it easier to ticket people. The speed limit where I live is 30mph, if I drive to work at that speed versus 40mph on the roads, that's an almost 30 minute difference. That extra 10 miles of speed lets me catch a ton of lights.

All of a sudden the village decides that the north-south street needs a stop and waste my taxes on that shit?
Fuck that! I blow through that stop every day. Just waiting for the day when the street light burns out and I can run up with my socket wrench and bag me one of those fuckers.
Told one of the cops that comes into my store about my plan, he just put his fingers in his ears and went 'LA LA LA I'm not hearing this'
Civil disobedience is best disobedience.
