For what I recall, the city stopping using them when a judge ruled that they had to give over some of the proceeds to local schools.

If I may add this little bit of info....A cop can give you a speeding ticket whether he has a radar gun etc or not.All he has to do is tell the judge that in his opinion you where speeding and the judge can say "I believe you" and kazammmmmm You pay the ticket . Even with a lawyer you can still have to pay up...I saw this happin (not to me) Dont worry about speed cameras worry about being seen.

The best way to deal with this problem is not to speed. Novel concept, I know.

Ya, but then it takes longer to get where I am going. If I speed AND blow red lights I get there a lot faster.
