    Default Maryland Has Them

    I don't know about other states but they are starting to appear here in Montgomery County Maryland (Randolph Road). Last night I took a drive to check them out. Everyone was heading home (rush hour traffic) and it was weird seeing the camera flashing in the failing sunlight.

    The cameras use radar (my trusty V1 tells me long before I'm in range). I slowed down while a car next to me kept right on speeding and suddenly for him it was, "Smile and say Cheese".

    But seriously, it looks like they're installing them only in areas where there's been a lot of accidents or speeding would be especially bad. One is in a school zone, the other is at an intersection where lots of accidents have occurred. I'm sure there will be more.

    Also, they look just like redlight cameras but they are not. I also think they are adjusted to allow people to go 5 over the limit but that's just a guess.

    Arizona has them. Most in Scottsdale on the freeway and a few on the street. Tempe is starting to put them in the downtown area.. But they all use magnets in the road so a radar detector is no help. Good thing is they have warning signs and the magnetic sensor is literally 20 feet in front of the camera so you have to be an idiot to get caught.

    Now we have mobil vans that use low powered KA radar.. So far my V1 has picked them up from 200 feet to 1/4 mile deepening on the location of the van.

    5 over is BS most cops give you 10 overthats what I usually do and trust me I am the slowest guy on the road but if I don't have to be anywhere in hurry I don't speed that much save gas and relax. WHen I head down to Pittsburgh I like to speed especially on those boring straight roads.
