A word for the holier-than-thou who think they're above all this: Get out your wallet! Assuming you occasionally venture outside of your neighborhood into unfamiliar territory, you need to buy a $300+ nav system to warn you when you're approaching a camera enforced location. Why?

The drivers in front of you will be exhibiting unexpected behavior, like slamming on their brakes on a brand new yellow, or because they have "local" knowledge that there's a speed camera there. The warning from the nav system will save you from rear-ending them - an accident for which the law would automatically hold you responsible.

Once you have your nav system, you will also need to spend some time each month downloading the database containing the newest locations - and of course you will need to pay for a subscription to that data.(You will also need to maintain the nav systems belonging to all your computer-illiterate friends and relatives.) Have fun out there!

Now all that remains is for one of our bleeding heart liberal judges in Polk Co. to actually find some of these people guilty.
