Please don't tell me you don't watch your speedometer and rely on your GPS?

If so, that seems a little dangerous.

That's true, and knowing that tip about the sensors is one very easy way to avoid the flash. I can't believe all these morons who slam on their brakes whenever they see the cameras, and continue to drive at ridiculously slow speeds long after they pass the camera locations. The cameras will not snap your gorgeous mug shots if you accelerate past the "breaking point" when driving past the sensors.

You may BOTH have received a ticket, did you consider that? Go to court and tell your story, perhaps the judge will believe you. Or, if you weren't actually served, you can try ignoring the mailed citation like many of the others here advise you to do (but don't answer your door for the next several months)
