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.

How did you avoid the fact that they exist. I mean did you just think speeding tickets didn't exist or what is going on here?

Those things ain't in Texas (to my knowledge). Here, you get a speeding ticket by a cop catching you on radar.

Why would he need to think speeding tickets didn't exist? Speeding tickets existed long before these, and still exist alongside as cops pull people over all the time.

in america, (if that is indeed where you are) you have to be handed the ticket.

I live in Canada, we have cameras at intersections around my city. If you get a ticket they just mail it to you. If you don't respond they send it to collections.
#45 - hikakiller (04/08/2016) [-]
Weird. Our cameras are privately funded, so i don't think its 'technically' legal anyway.

Can't you do the shit that one dude did and ask them to prove you were the one driving the car?

All they care about is that your car was speeding somewhere. They don't care who was driving.
User avatar
#48 - masanori (04/08/2016) [-]
Or traffic court or whatever the fuck.
User avatar
#47 - masanori (04/08/2016) [-]
That's bullshit. If they can't prove it was you, they shouldn't be able to charge you. I'd definitely take it to small claims court.
User avatar
#49 - dazartimm (04/08/2016) [-]
That's not how it works here. They have the proof of your vehicle speeding and that warrants the ticket. Believe me, I know how shitty it is.

#58 - BloodyTurds (04/08/2016) [-]
Yup, they can fine you, however those tickets DONT go on your driving record.. because as you stated there is no proof it was you...
User avatar
#62 - shorea (04/08/2016) [-]
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
#65 - BloodyTurds (04/08/2016) [-]
thelawdictionary.org/article/will-my-auto-insurance-rates-go-up-if-i-get-a-red-light-camera-ticket/

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...
User avatar
#67 - shorea (04/08/2016) [-]
In Europe, whether you've been ticketed or not, has no impact on insurance rates, it's just about the ticket and who's going to get it.

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.

Studies show speeding encourages you to be more aware of your surroundings compared to the idiots who drive 60 in a 65 texting

#43 - masanori (04/08/2016) [-]
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.
User avatar
#86 - zerglin (04/08/2016) [-]
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.
User avatar
#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.

You're far more likely to kill someone the faster you're driving.

You choose, knowing this, to drive faster just because you like to do it?

Jesus Christ.

#104 - masanori (04/08/2016) [-]
>>#102

Again, I know what I'm doing. I don't speed in a situation where I'm at all likely to hit anyone, and even if I did, I still probably wouldn't because my awareness is acute and my reaction time miniscule.

#90 - cheeseboyofdoom (04/08/2016) [-]
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.
User avatar
#99 - trolljunkusa (04/08/2016) [-]
Also driving slow in fast moving traffic, you're no longer traffic, but an obstacle, and people will try to get around you.

Now you're putting other peoples lives in risks

For the past 23 out of 25 years I have been on this earth there has been no stop sign at the end of my block. It's a sleepy calm street. No accidents, no speeders, nothing. The intersection even has stop signs on the east-west road that forces those cars to stop.
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.
User avatar
#103 - masanori (04/08/2016) [-]
Lmao

Stop signs are fucking stupid. They should only exist at the most busy streets, and even then they should make a decision about which steet is busier and let one flow. All way stops are retarded. Most stop signs should be replaced by yield signs.
