    How does having a cop stop you and give you a ticket enable your right to due process. i would think these, like any other ticket, allow you to either pay the fine or to go to the clerk’s office and get a court date. That’s the due process, not the cop at your window.

    Sounds like this camera is doing exactly what it was supposed to do.

      I’m still trying to figure out what defense they could have for speeding.

    Also, I would be interested in having the plantiff’s tickets, violations, fines, etc required publication when this suit was filed and be part of the story. I think their standing in the case is completely relevant, public record and entirely relevant and newsworthy.

    I wonder if they were given “due process”, and it didn’t result in someone letting them talk their way out of a fine.

    How come everyone was at 46 mph when the speed violation occurred. I know of three people all of whom had 46 mph on their tickets.

    Tickets issued assume the registered owner is driving, this is not always the case and since these are mailed sometimes several weeks after the alleged incident, it does seem unreasonable.

    Further, in our property taxes we support (willingly or not) the finances of the police department. Should we not expect that they are out doing their job? Or is the next step eliminating part of the police force that we may need for help on bigger things?

    Frankly, if we could utilize technology for replacing human intervention in public service, why not? It’s served the private sector well for decades, and would free up the resources to pursue/protect against property/violent crimes without added to head count.

    So would you force everyone to turn in their toll tags and revert to manned booths again. C’mon! I definitely love the take my picture and send me a bill option.
