Tonight I was going 64 MPH on cruise control in a 65 MPH zone on I-10, and a temporary camera flashed at me. I expect a ticket in a few weeks. I doubled back and re-drove the same stretch of I-10, but in a far lane, at only 60 MPH. I saw several cars in a row, going the same speed I was but in the “curb lane,” getting flashed by the temporary camera. It sure seems like a money-making scheme for the state.
Comments about “if you’re going the speed limit, you don’t have to worry” are just not true! The camera operators can set the cameras to any speed they want, and calibrate them to show you’re going faster than you really are!
Redflex is deploying countless numbers of these snap-happy drones all over the state, as previously documented during a past excursion on the 1-10 near the 7th St tunnel.
