Interesting of them to have put Fullerton as a dishonorable mention. I haven't gotten pulled over while I lived in the area, but I did notice that the speed limits there are pretty slow.

Summersville, WV.

U.S. 19 in central West Virginia is the straightest shot for people traveling between western Pennsylvania and the Carolinas. The speed limit on most of this highway is 65, but it suddenly drops to 50 near some of the towns. Summersville is the most notorious of the bunch, and the police department there even brags about the number of speeding tickets they write. So if you ever drive between Pittsburgh and Charlotte, watch out in the towns along U.S. 19 in West Virginia.

ORLANDO and The Suburbs. The rest of Florida is pretty chill, unless you go north of Orlando, it gets bad. I-10 especially.

Thankfully, in our state of Minnesota, cameras have been thrown out by the courts as a means to ticket people for traffic violations.

The reason was the driver of the car must be positively identified when issuing a ticket.

Minnesota was using cameras at stop lights.

I support them frankly, but they should make it clear that the area is under camera surveillance. There's a stretch on this major road called Connecticut Avenue where the limit is 30MPH. Everyone knows that there are cameras there: the signs say so, the camera boxes are a bit of a giveaway, and there are those lines on the ground that the camera is aimed at. Because it's so well known that it's a speed camera zone, people stay within the speed limit buffer (which is 10 or 11 MPH).

I surprisingly have had good luck in DC with speed cameras. Then again I pretty much always go the limit in the city. I only got hit with a camera once on the Anacostia Freeway. Anybody know if there's a buffer like in MoCo (where you can be up to 10MPH over the limit)?
