Something like 10 percent of cars
can’t be detected by fixed speed cameras because of bad shocks or
unbalanced wheels, according to the camera user manuals.
Potholes and cracks in pavement can also invalidate readings. So if a
car is moving up-and-down as it speeds through an intersection, a speed
camera can’t issue it a ticket. World, I would like to introduce you to
some experts who can customize your car to beat speed cameras every
time: Southern California low-riders. (Or, you can just buy a lowrider).
“Lowering out” a car – making the body of the car ride just an inch or
two from the pavement – is illegal here in California, so the bad-ass
car vatos in L.A. have for decades been building in “hydraulics
to make their low cars go up when the cops are around. Competition has
driven the up-and-down capabilities of these cars to new highs (and
lows). They’ve been breaking the law and getting away with it for
years. Now you can too. Here comes the VIDEO!

Speed camera revenue

Distribution of revenue from camera detected offences is restricted in terms of the Transport Operations (Road Use Management) Act 1995
which requires that all money collected for penalties imposed for
camera detected offences in excess of the administrative costs of
collection must be used for the following purposes:

  • road safety education and awareness programs;
  • road accident injury rehabilitation programs; or
  • road funding to improve the safety of the sections of State-controlled roads where crashes most frequently happen.
    Most other states in Australia do not have
    any policy or legislative requirements in place for the distribution of
    camera detected offence revenue or any other traffic fines.
