This site may be helpful for those of you fighting photo-enforced tickets. It's Cali-centric, but at least it can give you some ideas:

http://www.highwayrobbery.net/index.htm

It certainly is a must-read for anyone who is concerned about this type of enforcement.

Hey Joker, If you stop before you turn its Legal.

We have a few intersection here that are set up for the camera.
But there is only 1 actual camera....they move it arround the city.

The only time I "push the envelope" at intersections is when I am on the bike.
I would rather Crowd The RED than take a chance on someone else trying to Run The Red and Schwak'n me from behind.

I just think people need to slow down a little and enjoy life....take it all in. U only live once.

Pretty sure the camera vans on the side of the road use radar and my detector has saved me a few times from them. One time on Rt. 85, I got a chirp, hit the brakes and another car shot past me. Van behind a rock up ahead nailed him with some flashes, but not me. As for the stationary speed cameras, I think they use some kind of vascar and there are sensors under the pavement near them, but not always across all lanes. I've heard they don't even mail the ticket unless they have a clear shot of the driver's face. So I just hold my hat over the right side of my face as I go by. Most of the cameras have warning signs, so you have plenty of time to slow down if you're watching for the signs. I just block my face in case a car next to me speeds by and trips the camera and it gets me. Once I've done some more research on this, I'll consider getting a big mirror to hold in front of my face and ruin the photo. I've also heard that putting a piece of aluminum foil across the top of your windshield will ruin the photo.

There's an intersection near the Chinese Cultural Center, where if I'm the very first car or bike at the line and floor it when it turns green, I cannot complete the left turn before the light turns red again. Thankfully, there's no camera there yet.

Great video! Great idea - cover them with wrapping paper at Christmas time. Shoot them out on new years eve or July 4th to cover the bangs!
