Camera speeding tickets
Wondering

United States

#1 Jan 6, 2011
Has anybody contested the camera speeding tickets and went to court? Results? Have been told that the cameras are located right after the speed changes to 45 and that after you pass the camera the speed goes back up to 55....seems sneaky and only for money making purposes not public safety..

Yes, as a matter of fact, I did!! They sent a ticket along with picture of my truck to my old address. I called about it. They said they zoomed in to get the license number and there is no arguing. If you speed, you pay a fine, simple!!! I know it is a trap, but it's a way to get money quick and just pay attention to your speed through there....

You can go to court and contest the ticket, however:
1) court is held at the Bluff City town hall and currently the split city council will not allow the city recorder to hire a judge to hear the cases, so although you can go to court you can't get a court date.
2) if you just pay the ticket as is, you get a $90 fine and it is just a civil matter. If you go to court and are found guilty by the judge it becomes a traffic violation and you get points on your license.

And, your if you go to court, your fine doubles.Just found that out! So, I paid the fine and it's over with. Also, if you don't pay it, they will suspend your license. Any way you look at, you are definately going to lose. It is a way to make money the dirty way. It's sad, but just obey the law and speed signs and we won't have to worry about it.

I would like to know what those cameras use to detect speed. They say they are radar cameras but my radar detector never goes off when I am near the cameras. Top of the line detector goes of for Radar X / K / Ka, Laser, Lidar, & Vg3. Something to think about.

It is amazing how they keep turning people out into society.
Joe Aldridge who sometimes pretnends to be a preacher was convicted of selling drugs to children ans well as child molestation. And yet he keeps going into peoples home pretending to want to fix their tubs. He drives a white van with plates " FIXTUBS" be ware of this person,my sister says he tried to molest her last month.
