    The CA GT'ers who regularly defend their State have got to see the writing on the wall sooner or later.

    And that is not CA bashing, just reality.

    It's a shame too cause it has some beautiful country. If you could just get rid of the population of politicians, celebrities, and hippies it would be a pretty nice place.

    It is past writing on the wall. I certainly don't like it but my options to leave are limited. A lot of this stuff only affects the big cities anyway. You non-Californians are getting distracted and failing to see that with few exceptions it is coming to your state as well.

    There's a lot of truth in this. My home state (Oregon) has already been taken over as has the state I live in now (Washington). Would be nice if they'd split the eastern half of both states and make a new one.

    WHO are they going to give the ticket too? How do they know who was driving the car? Weird...

    True. He is a good guy.

    I don't think this will give him ulcers, though.

    2.4M speeders a year? So they already have a revenue estimate budgeted. What happens when they only ticket 500K of them? Do they lower the speed limits where the cameras are? ;-)

    Here's a wild, wacky, LUNATIC idea......



    .....don't speed.


    We actually get the same complaints around here with actual patrol officers doing traffic detail. Folks will inevitably say "Don't they have REAL work to do?" Guess what, speeding really IS against the law. Don't want the ticket? Don't break the law.

    Like I said, a really out-there suggestion, I know...

    Somehow, though, I don't think Illinois is using it as a crutch to recover from a severe budgetary crisis.

    Wait. Illinois? Maybe.

    they ticket the owner of the car. thats why people will put the license plates (fake ones) of people they hate and speed around.

    Those cameras get clear pictures of the driver. I've seen a few pictures.

    One guy drove around in a monkey mask to beat the cameras, because they can't prove who's driving the car.

    The owner's defense is that he wasn't driving the car.

    I like CJ's response....Who are they giving the ticket to and how do they know who was driving?

    wow I screwed that post up...

    I like whoever it was that stated-....Who are they giving the ticket to and how do they know who was driving?

    Sorry Mr. Landry. Didn't mean that.
