  • Speeding ticket via roadside camera

    I read this on the Snopes website and had to share it with you guys. It's too funny!

    I heard a news report on Chicago radio that a guy in California got a speeding ticket that was sent to him via the mail. It was one of those new 'camera' set-ups that got him, where a camera is positioned along the highway, sans officer. The camera took the picture of his speeding car & tag number. A letter was generated by a computer & sent to him with the PHOTOGRAPH of his car speeding and the date & time of the offense. The letter went on to state that he had to send in a fine of $40. The story went that the guy was so mad that he sent back the letter with a PHOTOGRAPH of two (2) $20 bills. A week later he got a letter back from the police. He opened up the letter and inside was a PHOTOGRAPH of a pair of handcuffs!

    apparently here in AZ, if you get nailed by one (which i did about a month ago) they suspend your license right off the bat if you dont pay, its pancakeing stupid, and i pancakeing hate it.

        Yikes, DF, that doesn't seem right! Don't they have to account for computer error or something?

            I heard it where a guy gets on of those sent to his house and his wife gets it and finds that he is in the car with another woman.

                Too clinical w/o human-copper interaction. Pretty soon you won't be needing real-time coppers. All will be regulated remotely with cooperative citizens submitting wholly to the state as in THX-1138

                  Snopes.com is a great website if you're a fan of urban legends. I stumbled onto it, and was instantly addicted. There are tens of thousands of stories there covering any topic you can imagine. If you've never been there, and you want to lose a weekend, you should go there.
