Speed Cameras Issue 3,500 Tickets In One Day

Speed Cameras Issue 3,500 Tickets In One Day

The leafy capital suburb of Chevy Chase Village is a great place to live but you wouldn’t want to visit there.

At least not by car. Easy-to-miss automated speed cameras on its half-mile main drag, where the speed limit is 30 mph, caught 3,500 speeders on their first day of operation last fall. Before that, the norm was six tickets a day.

Many speeders first learn they’ve been caught when citations, along with photographic evidence, show up at the addresses that match the violators’ license plates.

Be forewarned: More than 300 U.S. communities use automated “cop cam” systems like Chevy Chase’s. They’re after not just speeders but also red-light violators and railroad-crossing jumpers.

In the works are bus-mounted cop cams that ticket bus lane intruders, cop cams to punish speeders in highway construction zones, even cop cam systems that ticket motorists based on a car’s average speed over a mile. They catch drivers who brake for known camera sites, then resume speeding.

Want to fight a cop cam ticket?

The same software that processes violations lets drivers view the five seconds before and after their alleged offenses on their home computers.

“It’s very compelling evidence,” said Cristina Weekes, the executive vice president for sales and marketing at Redflex Traffic Systems Inc., of Scottsdale, Ariz., a leading cop-cam maker.

“It’s almost a no-win,” admitted Horace Bradshaw, Washington’s best-known traffic court defense lawyer.

When polled, substantial majorities approve of cop cams. When ticketed, however, lots are outraged.

“It’s like Nazi Germany!” sputtered Dan Bradley, 41, a federal personnel investigator who routinely runs the six-lane Chevy Chase gantlet. “They ticket you for speeds that aren’t dangerous.”

In the peaceable United Kingdom, where cop cams are 10 times more widely used, saboteurs have shot out cameras lenses, disabled them with bolt cutters, set fire to them and pulled them down with a tractor’s help, according to news reports.

Cop Admits Stopping Car Over Ron Paul Bumper Stickers

Cop Admits Stopping Car Over Ron Paul Bumper Stickers

In the new America an endorsement of Congressman Ron Paul now gives the police probable cause to pull you over, ask you for identification and search your vehicle.

Much to their surprise Rick and Ingrid, friends from Las Vegas, discovered this recently when police pulled them over and cited a Ron Paul and an Infowars bumper sticker on the back of their car as having aroused suspicion.

The couple sent the following email explaining their experience:

It was late afternoon here Las Vegas and we were pulling into Sam’s Town Casino and Hotel. As we were pulling into the parking lot of Sam’s Town we heard what sounded like a fog horn type of horn. Anyway since I never have heard a police siren like that I figured it was some guy who was in a hurry going no where honking his weird horn. We drove a little further and we saw the colored lights of the police in the rear window. They were pulling us
over!!!!

We pulled over and stopped and the police car pulled behind us. There were two officers in the car, one of the officers got out on the drivers side of the police car and walked over to my friends window (the drivers side) and he (my friend) asked the officer is there problem and he responded by saying “I just want to know what is going on”. Next he wanted to see his ID and had he ever been arrested. He did not ask for the registration to the car or for proof of insurance. I thought that was strange since every officer I ever encountered wanted to see all of the paperwork.

Then he asked for my ID, and I handed it to him. Right after that another officer shows up on the passenger side and asked for my ID, I told him I gave it to the other officer and he said “Don’t you have more than one ID”.? I said no only one.Then they told us get out of the car and put our hands behind our backs, and to stand in front of the police car.

We complied with their request and never once gave them any trouble. Then one of the officers called me back to the side of the car, said he wanted to talk to me. He asked me if there was anything illegal in this car, I said no. He said you had better being telling the truth because we are going to search this car. He then asked where we were before we came here, I replied we just came from Big Lots shopping. Well, Alex they (the police) started searching my friend and myself. They then they went to the car and told us to stay there and not turn around. In the meantime Sam’s Town security joined the cop sand they were eager to play “Lap Dogs” for the cops. Finally they emerged from the car and told us we could go now.

As we are walking to the car one officer comes walking towards me and says “You know why we had to do this right”?

I said pardon me officer, I don’t know understand, he then repeated it. Then he pointed at our RON PAUL and INFOWARS stickers on our car. I was going to question his actions but my friend said let’s just go. Our stickers are still on the car and will remain there.

Sincerely,

Rick and Ingrid from Las Vegas.
