Could someone make a sticky for this, I was unaware this was being used, it might be usefull for people in PA especially.
ENRADD Speed-measuring system and technology.
ENRADD is one of the least known speed-measuring unit known on the Internet today (March 2006).
Development of ENRADD started in mid 70' in Pennsylvania.
I have one speeding ticket which I did not beat under my belt. ENRADD is not the reason I did not beat the ticket. ENRADD system has more holes than a Swiss cheese and that's the reason it is accepted in very few States in the US as far I as know. Those states are:
- Ohio (??)
Resons why I have lost the trial:
- Judge completely refused to accept my evidence as images and maps and listen to anything I had to say
- The whole trial was biased (they just need our money and trial is treated as a burden)
- I am not a professional lawyer who is doing this kind of work on a daily basis
Good things about the trial:
- "System" actually had to work for my money by spending time, resources and (my) money on trial
- If each and every ticket will be contested in Court - "System" will have to respond either by writing less tickets (since they can not afford having cops in Court rather then in Donkin Donuts) or just give-up on many speed-traps
- "System" will probably re-think their "Safety" ideas for our roads and maybe admit to the fact that incompetent or plain stupid drivers kill, not the speed!
The ENRADD technology holes and shortcomings I have discovered while preparing for the trial:
* Unit is unable to to work on a wide roads (i.e. four lanes highways either two ways in each direction or four lanes in one direction) due to the limitation on maximum distance between sensors thus uncapable of distiguishing with absolute accuracy if second set of sensors was actually triggered by the same car that triggered the first set of sensors (i.e. first set of sensors was triggered by the car moving in one direction and the second sent was triggered by the car moving in opposite direction).
* ENRADD unit has to transmit the speed-reading data to the police car over the radio frequency. Usually ENRADD unit requires two police cars to operate: one reading the unit data and second police car is actually making a traffic stop. Two cops have to show-up at the trial.
