i heard on the news that they have put photo radar in chicago workzones to cut down on speeding...the officer that was being inverviewed said there is a "beam" that clocks you and shows you your speed (like a speed sign) and gives you the opportunity to slow down before taking your picutre...for some reason i dont believe this at all... first of all he called it a "beam" and the fact that it gives you a chance to slow down...weird, no?
can anyone confirm this or say whats actually happening?
they also said that if your from wisconsin, points will be assessed to your license if you are caught by this photo radar in illinois. it was my understanding of wisconsin laws that if you are out of state, points can not be assessed to your license if you are caught speeding. unless this just changed, i dont know what they are talking about
