I'm scheduled to appear in court on September 30th for a ticket I got on I-17 back in March.

While on this topic, I went down to the court building on West Jackson about a month ago, and waited in line for an hour, then I told the clerk at the counter that I wanted to contest the ticket based on the other vehicle that was in the photo, and in the lane next to me, which made me wonder if it was the driver in the other vehicle that was speeding, and not me. She had me fill out a sheet of paper, and gave me the court date. Last Saturday afternoon, a DPS officer came knocking on my door and personally handed me a copy of the same ticket, with a date to get this ticket resolved by July 19th... I told him that I am already scheduled to contest this ticket in court on September 30th, and he said that he was only supposed to hand me the ticket. I'm starting to wonder about their record keeping now, and if we can relly on it, because from what I've seen, it sounds like a joke, just like the cameras themselves! So I'm going down to the Jackson Court building sometime this week to figure out what the heck is going on.

Count me as another one who is really tired of all these threads about getting out of a speeding ticket. Best way to avoid speeding tickets? Don't speed in the first place. Second best? (which applies here) Pay up or go to traffic school, and don't do it again.

LOL, I have gotten away with over 20 off these photo radar tickets. If you wonder how I got so many, well I was a courier in Phoenix who drove 200 miles a day. I got them all the time as I was always in a hurry. The first few tickets I got, a process server came to my house and I never answered the door. Then I moved and did not change my address. I was flashed constantly so I know I got a ton of them, but my license was never suspended. Since then I moved to Vegas, I have gotten a few when I visit my friends in Phoenix which I have received in the mail. I have ignored them and they never even sent a process server here.

I have gotten 3 photo radar tickets in the last few years, all on the 101 freeway. I have ignored them all, since they were not signed by a judge. None of these are on my record anymore, they all go away after 90 days.

+1 for you... Great Job!! Maybe the other people of Phoenix will wise up and realize the whole photo radar system is a joke. I am glad to see their scare tactics are now failing.

I have had process servers come to my house before, but I would just ignore them, and eventually they stopped coming.

Maybe I should send them a picture of money, since they only have a picture of me speeding!

I just ride my motorcycle between the sensor wires or, if there's a truck to my right, blocking the camera, I speed up to at least 25 mph over, so the truck gets flashed. Still haven't gotten anything in the mail and I've been doing it for over a year. I'll never pay one of these tickets if I ever get one. I have no respect at all for speed enforcement and revenue raising. I have all the respect in the world for safety and defensive driving. Safety and speed cameras have absolutely nothing to do with each other.

I think you would find, statistically, that driving at least 25 miles over the speed limit DOES impact safety... the chance of something happening to you or someone else is greater. There are speed limits FOR A REASON. Go live out in the middle of nowhere (and don't come to the city) if that's what you want to do.
