In almost every case, an outside company that specializes in photo radar technology would be hired to furnish and maintain the photo radar units.
The company either gets a set amount or gets paid when the city receives the fines that originated from any of the photo radar units installed throughout the city. The 'profits' are split with the company.
Also, the person evaluating the photos usually is not a government employee, but rather works for the company that supply and maintain the photo radar units!
This means the company is also the one which writes and mails out the speeding tickets!
Many cities cite safety as a primary reason why they use photo radar. However, it's obvious even to a retarded ape what's wrong with this method of speed enforcement.
First, the speeding vehicle was never pulled over to begin with. So, technically there was never any safety enforcement. If you allow a person to speed and mail him a ticket two weeks later, where's the safety benefit in that?
Secondly, sending a ticket to the registered owner is hardly fair when it is not proven if in fact he or she was the one driving the car at the time. Just because one owns the vehicle doesn't mean they were driving it.
Last but not least, since 99% of the time the person mailing you your fine is NOT a government employee, it hardly sounds as if this is really done for our safety. Especially when you consider they are getting a percentage from the ticket fines.
All of this just goes to show you the true motive behind this sinister means of traffic enforcement. No one is thinking about our safety.
It's all about money, money, and then more MONEY!
If you inspected Will Foreman's SUV, you might notice how clean and shiny his Maryland license plates are. But you probably wouldn't detect the clear glossy coating sprayed on them eight months ago to thwart traffic cameras from snapping readable photos of his tags.
"It must work," says Foreman. He has not received a traffic camera ticket since using a $29.99 spray called Photo Blocker.
Foreman, owner of an auto supply store, also coated the plates of his eight delivery trucks. He says they previously drew $1,200 in photo-radar fines but none since the application. And he has had no complaints from customers who have bought about 700 cans of the spray at his shop. "If it didn't work, we would've heard about it," he says.
Another man, Furman Eldridge, bought Photo Blocker a year ago as 'a defense mechanism'. He has enough faith in it that he says he gave a can to his pastor.
"I've always been a law-abiding citizen," he says. "You don't want people speeding, but I don't think it should flash you if you're just going five miles over the limit."
Cheaper than radar detectors (which are illegal in the District of Columbia and Virginia), sprays such as Photo Blocker, are advertised as reflecting the flash back at automated cameras to overexpose the license plate.
The photo is said to look like a picture taken with a flash in front of a mirror -- glared. It's validity has been tested by police departments and news stations across the country and has been proven to work over 90% of the time.
