Re: And more and more will become better

I can assure you, all of the people getting speeding tickets are still speeding. They are more discreet about it.

How the hell does one discreetly speed? It's not exactly easy to hide a 3000lb hunk of plastic and metal traveling at 70+ MPH.

Re: And how do you hide speeding?

You speed by knowing where the photo cameras are. Know where the red light cameras are. Where no enforcement due to non-safe stopping places to write tickets. You find a less-observant speeder and follow him and let him be the bait for enforcement.

If you know how radar beams from the microwave radar gun works, you can easily get a ticket thrown out by arguing that it wasn't you speeding, as it was the other vehicle next to you.
Laser radar guns that are not on a tripod, the unit moves when the officer pushes the button, resulting in a flawed reading that is +4mph above the speed you were doing.

Flaws in the system are easy to use, whether by the innocents or by the authorities. And if you don;'t know the flaws, you will be extorted out of your lifes savings so that some billionaire(politician or private citizen) can continue his filthy habit of thinking he is immune from real life.

Unfortunately that doesn't work in NY. The primary evidence against you here is the officer's expert testimony that you were traveling the cited speed. The reading from the device is secondary to confirm the officer was right. You can successfully argue against his/her 'expertise' or against the accuracy/use of the speed measuring device but trying to argue against both almost never works.
