Talking about Photo Radar, I had read sometime back that New Jersey had
decided not to use it because it wouldn't be fair to give a ticket to the
registered owner when someone else could be driving the car. Getting a
speeding ticket in NJ gets you points on your license, plus the insurance
company adds a hefty annual surcharge to your premium.
Here's a joke I had read about an incident of Photo Radar use (claimed to
be true, but who knows).
Apparently, a guy received a picture of his car in the mail with a
ticket for speeding - a result of the recent photo radar use in his area.
The fine was $100. So he sent his ticket back with a photocopy of a
$100 bill. The authorities, seeing the humor in this, in turn mailed
him back a photo of handcuffs. He promptly paid his ticket.
