Those "your speed" things

Do they take pictures? I passed one doing like 7 over and I saw a group of white LEDs flashing. Am I getting a nice letter from the police soon?

i think they are just indicators, i have blown by ones like that here, 10 over, and had nothing happen. It all depends on whether it was a cube trailer, or just a regular speed sign trailer(the cube ones house a pig in them, that will take a photo)

Nope. Most times those are to tell you your speed and to get you to slow down. If its pointed at you when your approaching it, your good to go. If its pointed at you when you pass, your screwed. (getting the tag info)

I use to pass by those all the time, when they flash they usually tell you to slow down or you're over the speed limit. They usually don't start flashing until you've gone over 5 mph.

i gotta try that with a few friends, we effed with a photo radar cop a few times, drive by him so he can spot the vehicle, then come back via the service road beside him, slow right down, look at him, then go back on the main road, right through his sights again(repeated four times)
