With more and more of these revenue making camera systems being used in many places in the U.S. there is now a technological way to avoid these unwanted tickets legally. Most of us do not intentionally speed or break the law but we are human and make mistakes. I wish to make this clear I am not selling this item and will not provide any link guiding you to the stores that sell this (Forum rules) you can Google it yourself if you are interested in more info.. I have used this product myself for some time now, and have found it most useful. It is called a 9500ix, and I find it a most useful and money saving device. I am a class "A" CDL semi driver with over 2 million safe and ticket free miles so as you might guess, SAFTY IS MY EVERY DAY GOAL, (I am not a speeder) I use this device ONLY in my personal car. The integration of GPS into a radar detector is probably the most significant innovation to this market, and is a game changer. A drive through places like AZ, where they have placed cash registers (er, speed cams) instantly triples the value of a product like the 9500ix. On a recent trip to AZ it picked up every one of them (note that the fixed cameras do not rely on radar so a traditional detector is useless). It also noted the red light cameras with plenty of advance notice.Also the 9500ix is continually updated as to the locations of any new cameras that have been installed. The cost of this device is far less than all the costs of getting these camera tickets.

I assume they will eventually pass a law against devices like this. Anyways I have never been caught by one of these cameras and i find it hard to actually go the speed limit anywhere. Im sure its probably just the area I am in and that will probably change as more of these cameras pop up.

But damn, 400-500 dollars for one of these? Crazy

To help others understand, there is more cost of speeding ticket than just the fine imposed by the court. Before you just pay your ticket you need to evaluate the total cost of a speeding ticket.

MOD EDIT. Only two sentences may be quoted from any source. Please cite your resource.

You can do this with most cell phones that have GPS, they would have to pass a law making the software illegal and/or disseminating the data. I don't see that happening and if they did how are they going to catch you without confiscating your phone or monitoring your internet activity? The device mentioned here is also a radar/laser detector which of course gives you more functionality that just a cell phone.

I don't know how your states that have red light cams get away with it?
In MN they were found to be unconstitutional and had to be removed.

Under the State constitution which is going to be different in each state, having said that I'd agree, their primary use is to generate revenue.

Personally, I enjoy lighting up the traffic cameras when turning right (go just fast enough to disrupt the field, and then stop at the light to yield). I wish more people would do that just so that that authorities spend time and money figuring out if the person did break the line. Just make sure to stop and yield, however.

Not decelerating normally at an intersection is not a very safe driving practice nor is it very good for the car. Slow and steady braking pressure is substantially less wear and tear on your brakes than hard stop in short distance.

You don't have to speed thru, you just have to go fast enough. It is not uncommon to see these cameras trigger at normal speeds. This, coming from someone who uses minimal braking (two brake pad replacements over 195K miles in a 1998 Accord can vouch for that).

Where I live, they allow for some time for a driver to pass through a red light. The thinking is that sometimes a quick stop would mean someone behind crashing into you. I've gone through the red light at least three times with no consequences. And when I went to Dallas? Same thing. When I was there I read the Sunday paper about an article saying law was considered to be a civil matter, yet many people who really did something bad, they would refuse to pay their tickets.

I think people should be paying tickets if they are really at fault. Otherwise, there could be serious consequences, inviting serious injury or death.

I just wonder...Would people prefer to have a policeman watching certain crossings than a camera that gives you a bit of leeway? Not me.
