Voiceofreason01: /yeah article is full of crap. The Court of Appeals upheld the law.
Deep Contact: Your always guilty of something.
dickfreckle: All I know is that I should have the right to confront my accuser. How do I argue that the machine was in error or that it wasn't me driving? I got a ticket while driving my friend's SUV (he had too many beers). That ticket was in his name. What if I were a dick and didn't pay it?Oh, and I was going 5 miles over the speed limit. Giving issues like speedo calibration, that seems a little stupid. There should be a higher margin for error. A human cop usually doesn't care until you're clearly ignoring the speed limit.I'd also suggest that being so paranoid about your speedometer is actually more dangerous than just cruising down the road. Every time I'm in one of those camera zones I'm constantly checking my speed instead of concentrating on the road/conditions. I have to keep with the flow of traffic but if I even inch over the limit, I can look forward to a $75 ticket. So now you have a group of drivers staring at their dashboards instead of noticing the vehicle being followed that just slammed on its brakes.
strangeluck: That's bullshiat, she didn't voluntarily pay the fine, she paid it under the threat of going to jail or more fines.Doesn't that mean she was in a sense blackmailed? I think so.
