Re: Radars/CDs

I lived in L.A. for a while.  One of the first photoradar trailers was
parked on a regular route of mine.  Unlike Oregon, in L.A. they didn't TELL
you you'd been clocked and would soon get a ticket.  They moved the trailer
around sometimes, but to a few specific places, usually straight-aways in
between blind curves.

To be honest, the idea of photo radar bothered me more than the
implementation.  The places they put it really were important places to not
be speeding.  Even without my radar detector, I probably would have never
gotten a radar ticket.
