    Default Radar Van parked next to speed sign?

    I got tagged doing 37mph in a 30mph zone (just got flashed). Here's the kicker. The van was parked about 10 yards from the sign displaying "40MPH." I went back and got a photo of the van, and you can clearly see it almost next to the sign saying 40. Can I use this to my advantage?

    While I took the picture, it flashed nearly non-stop. Every 4th or 5th car that went by got flashed. They must be issuing $10k of tickets a day from that one van.

    Where do you live? That would help in determining the laws reguarding speed vans and speed traps near speed limit signs.

    Oh yeah, after doing some math on the issue, it seems $100-$300k in daily tickets is more accurate. I think that escalates it from scam to outright extortion of the populace.
