I'm sure there's a black market in lightly used surveillance cams

Then they'll need radioactive gorillas to watch the surveillance cameras that are watching the traffic cameras..
Once winter sets in though..It's all over...

The mobiles ones I have seen around here all have ball receivers on them. So if you drive a plain enough looking white domestic truck with a hitch, you could just back up to them and tow them off to the middle of nowhere and dump them.

I'm sure they have GPS tracking on them, so leave your phone at home so the two can't be correlated.

mjjt: I'm sure there's a black market in lightly used surveillance cams


The speed cameras they use around here (and in the UK and lots of other places that use Redflex) have very good DSLR camera bodies in them. There is already a black market for them.  I've been told the lenses aren't that useful except for some types of close wildlife type photography.

There's a quicker, faster way to disable red light cameras:

Single-point detection systems will eventually be replaced by something better. The more speed cameras that get sabotaged the sooner that will happen.

Radioactive Gorillas? OK. Why not.

I'm firmly against surveillance cameras on trains. It's an invasion of train piracy privacy.

Won't need speed cameras after the next iteration of OBD
For your convenience it will have engine lockout until you've registered a credit card for auto pay
Tampering is a felony.
Older vehicles will be grandfathered for two years then you must retrofit or take it off the road
When you renewed your driver's license you agreed to arbitration so just pay it
Driving is a privilege not a right

Do the gorillas all yell "MOM" at intervals?

Sounds very expensive.

FTFA: Albuquerque police data shows 2,994 drivers were caught driving 11 over the speed limit since the camera was brought in on June 10.


Sounds like the speed limit is set artificially low.

I'm mostly against the cameras but will concede them as a last resort after attempting the necessary studies and changes to the road to alter driver's habits. Those are usually very effective and much safer for everyone.
Sounds like they skipped a lot of steps here though.

One would think it would be cracking down on illegal left turns.

Sounds like the speed limit is set artificially profitably low.

All the more reason to intrude upon your privacy as much as possible.
