I Hate My City

OK so you all know that I got a speeding ticket for 45 in a 40 recently, well not long after that I got flashed by a red light camera...again(first time was for 50 in a 40 after leaving the pool hall, i took my lumps for that one) and again this happened while I was delivering pizzas. I was in the turning lane to take a right in an intersection and the arrow turns yellow so I keep on truckin thru, well it turns red as im turning right and the camera flashes me. My ticket came in today, a whopping $125. **** my life

$110 for the speeding ticket and $125 for the red light camera, delivering pizzas is starting to cost me more money than I make rofl

Get a license plate cover that doesn't let cameras see your plate...

yeah if there's a anti-photo cover out there that works, get it, but mythbusters (the tv show) tried out a bunch and none of them worked.

YouTube - How to beat a speed camera

but there was also this:

dunno where you get it tho or how legal it is

I got a basic black cover for my plate at AutoZone - been hit multiple times with a camera and never have had a ticket.

I would go to court over that last one and at the very least, get it knocked down to a smaller fine...

As for those red light cameras, MN no longer can use them...so happy about that...it was deemed illegal for them to use the camera's because there was no way to tell that the owner of the vehicle was for sure the one driving. So to send the owner of the car a ticket for someone else's poor choices while driving is illegal in MN.

The covers and sprays do not work. Their have been multiple tests of these all concluding negative results. Anything that shows it working is most likely faked. In the end its all a scam. If you were in the middle of the intersection then it should not have triggered. The cameras are suppose to be wired so that if the sensor is tripped once the light turns red it will snap a pic. Otherwise if it was already blocked before going to red it will not. You could always fight the ticket and they may check the intersection to make sure the sensors are working properly.
