LOL. Too funny! Love it, OP! Thank you for sharing, and making my day this a.m!
to this TN guy!

Somewhat, but not really off topic: I was recently summons for jury duty, got out of it phew lol, told em hemorrhoid problems lol.. cause they are a pain in the butt! lol. But there are many things that I still do not understand about our laws, etc . Recommend everyone to read up on jury nullification here at ATS .. we are the LAW makers! and should be made aware of this and fight for OUR RIGHTS, you know, the things they don't want us to have or know of?

Agreed, if ya can't face your accusers, these cams are most def illegal! Plus it's alllll about the revenue.

WooHOO Go Daddy.... I mean Go Tennessee! Proud of my fellow neighbor here!

"Revenge" for what? I don't want a ticket any more than the next guy, but you're obscuring the point:

DON'T SPEED OR RUN RED LIGHTS.

Wo cares if it was a police officer who catches you speeding/running red light or if it's a camera that catches you speeding/running red light. The point is you SPED OR RAN A RED LIGHT.

This is absurd, many times because of dwindling funds police departments have to use tools like cameras to handle mundane traffic duty like this so they can focus manpower in other areas. it's absurd to claim the need for "revenge", as if you were done some sort of injustice. if you don't want a ticket, don't break the LAW.

Simple.

I just moved back to N.C. from Bluff City. This guy is correct. it is a speed trap. It was once a speed set-up site also when I got caught in it. They would have 2 police cars stopping 1 car for something. Then, if you passed these cars the 2nd police car would go get you for failing to get over. When the first officer got through writing the ticket he would then pull behind the other police car and wait for another car to come by in the near lane and zip out and ticket him. This goes on every Sat. and Sun. when the flea market is open. The traffic is real bad and 99% of the time you can't get over to the outer lane so you end up with a ticket. When I went to court I showed the judge the phone evidence I had and how this set-up worked. He dismissed my ticket. You really have to watch out in Bluff City. This is how the built their new police station 5 yrs. ago.....

Wonder what most ATS'ers would do if this guy would kill one of their friends or family speeding. But hey, the right for a man to drive his car is a holy right in the US so who gives a damn about some collateral damage right


SURPRISE THE HOLYER THAN THOU ART'S POP IN. What took you guys so long I figured every cop on ATS would be pissing and moaning over this..

I'll add my support to your comment! People have two choices:

a. Obey the law
b. Lift all laws

There is no half way house unless ONLY those on ATS have the right to dictate which laws should be obeyed! So if all traffic laws related to speeding, light jumping etc were lifted would the roads be safer? I don't freaking think so. They would be death traps.

So the simplest safest way to drive without getting a ticket is to obey the speed limits and not jump lights. If you do wish to speed then keep quiet and look upon a ticket as a hazard but never ever try and justify your actions.

The cameras are just like having cops there. People just get mad that they got caught. Don't speed and you won't get a speeding ticket...

Here we go, machines replacing people in their jobs. IMO, not a good idea. How dependent we are upon them. But case in point, you can' not defend yourself against a machine, your accuser. Machines /electronics also get bugs in them, and can be faulty btw...

That's true. Agree there, that we all should be law abiding citizens. But when it comes to 'entrapment' though, this IS ILLEGAL in itself.

Too lol, they should have had the responsibility in paying their web hosting bill. That's their neglect, their bad, not his... anyone could have grabbed it... Hmmmm., maybe this is why they have the trap : they needed the money for their website!

Or the third choice, which is a great way to live a free live and I strongly encourage others to adopt if it suits their personality, is to live by your own moral code and only obey the laws outside of your moral code when it is convenient to do so (eg slow down for speed cameras, or when there are pigs behind you). I don't dictate to others what laws should be obeyed or how they should live just as I don't heed pointless laws a group of corrupt politicians came up with for whatever political reasons they had. If I were to mindlessly obey every law my life would be of a much lower quality than it is now and can honestly say I've never been happier in years. The Prodigy have a song that just about sums about how I feel about their law.

If you feel that whatever some politician has determined to be the speed limit is a safe speed for you then good for you. I drive a high performance car that has far more overall grip/stability plus breaking and cornering ability than a van driven by a middle aged mother. I also spend a lot of time at the track and reacting to an emergency or unexpected situation is second nature to me. I feel it is moral for me to drive at a much higher speed than said van driving mom. I have been driving for eight years and am yet to have an accident. I will be careful what I say here but I frequently drive in a manor many politicians and pigs would not approve of. If you get into a habit of scanning ahead you can identify any speed cameras or pigs and slow down in time to avoid a ticket. It has been almost two years since my last small speeding ticket while I wasn't paying attention.

I consider myself to be a safer driver when speeding because I'm on such a high alert due to wanting to maintain my freedom and not end up locked in a government cage. I read a study which came to the same conclusion but I will not be spending time finding it to back up what I say as it is each to his own anyway.

Just because SOME motorists crash when they speed doesn't mean we are all incapable. If people speed and hurt other people as a result I'm all for coming down on them like a ton of bricks. There are plenty of people who don't speed and kill people too simply because they are useless drivers.

This man buying the domain name is a hero for sticking it to them. The pigs act like we should all bow down to them. And yes I will refer to our fine law enforcement officers however I please, pigs seems to be the most appropriate title based on the behavior I've witnessed

You sound like a drunk 18 year old telling his girlfriend he's a safer driver when intoxicated. 'But I'm more cautious baby!'

I've had some 'performancy' cars, and agree that some vehicles in some situations can go a hell of a lot faster than your typical car. My Vette comes to mind. I also am aware that when you get that attitude, you end up putting yourself, that car you spent too much on and everyone else on the rode at risk. Save it for the track.

You have every right to call cops pigs, freedom of speech is important. I only asked that the reasonable members not devolve to that level.

Thank you for your comments. I'm aware how my type of thinking will come off to most ATS members. I'm sharing so that like minded people will realise there is another way if they haven't already (I'm grateful towards people who share this attitude as I used to live a depressing unfree life). It's probably best I don't get started on drink driving.

I'm also aware that every single corvette owner has broken the speed limit during some point in their driving career. If the justice system were 100% efficient they would have been penalized for each offense. What I'm saying is that we are lucky that it is not 100% efficient because we can take advantage of the inefficiencies and not get caught. Where I live, just flooring the accelerator on a corvette from zero to the speed limit will earn you a one month break from your car as it sits in an impound and a different 6 months without a license due to "exhibiting an unnecessary display of speed or acceleration." I used to dislike people who referred to the police as pigs but there is only so far we can be oppressed. I encourage other reasonable ATS members to occasionally adopt the term as it helps keep them in their place, they are not our masters. Luckily a car like a corvette will effortlessly evade any red and blues that might light up behind you, as seen during the brilliance of Getaway in Stockholm 4, where they flip the pigs the bird, lay down a huge burnout then lose the angry cops within seconds, much to the lolz of the viewer.

I do save my most extreme and dangerous driving for the track, where I have had scary crashes. I'm just not gona live my life based on what others tell me I "must" do. For people that are considering this lifestyle, if you know when and where and how much to speed, I am an example that you can pretty much get away with it daily without getting caught IF you are a good enough driver. If you get caught you either got very unlucky or are not a good enough driver. Of-course this is the internet and I can say what I like so there is no proof that I actually do this, believe whatever you want to believe.

I obviously do not speed past things like schools at 3pm (I go well under past my local because it's so dodgy, meanwhile van mom is a foot from my rear because I'm holding her up). My opinion is that I'm safer than most other people on the road but I'm sure most people would consider me one of the most dangerous on the road. Since I'm the only one responsible for my actions my opinion is the only one that matters to me.

What kind of world are we living in where one of the greatest drivers currently alive (Lewis Hamilton) has his Mercedes impounded because others consider his driving "unsafe". Please.. I'm glad Mark Webber spoke out against the oppressive policing despite risking his public image.

By the way I love the quotes in your sig.

That's absolutely hysterical!
Talk about bust-ed! I agree that these cameras are little more than a revenue stream and thankfully the town closest to me has at least for the time being defeated them. The town management wanted to put them up but a citizen got a bunch of signatures and put the issue to a referendum, and the townspeople overwhelmingly voted against it. So for now speeders will get pulled over by actual cops and not get busted by some cash hungry corporation.

The problem with cameras is that unlike a human being, they have no discretion. If the camera is a red light camera, it can't tell if the roads are wet or icy (I almost rear-ended a loon who came to a dead hard stop at a yellow light one time in a rainstorm, way back the day before anyone had ever heard of these cameras. Thankfully my car had anti-lock breaks or I would have bought the moron a new bumper for sure), it can't see the overall traffic conditions around the intersection, and therefore (this goes for speed cameras as well) it can't make any kind of informed decision on whether to issue a warning to someone with some kind of extenuating circumstance (like bad weather) or a big ticket to an egregious violator.

Or course, cops in their own right can be aggravating, and sometimes do make idiotic decisions. The one speeding ticket I got (back when I was in college) still makes me mad not so much that I got pulled over, but that I was keeping pace right alongside a school bus (!) and we were both going about 13mph over the limit, and damned if the cop didn't NOT pull the bus driver over along with me! Now that bus could have been full of school children.... so much for safety first.

Lol exactly. I'm sure the vehicle you were driving could have stopped in an emergency in about half the distance of a bus full of innocent children who are not wearing seat belts. When was the last time anyone saw the police pull over a bus driver who is manically trying to keep to schedule?

We are expected to drive at the same speed or slower than a vehicle that handles like a bus! IMO just having anti-lock brakes should entitle someone to another 10 clicks.

I don't dictate to others what laws should be obeyed or how they should live just as I don't heed pointless laws a group of corrupt politicians came up with for whatever political reasons they had.


So you tell me, if you have children is it perfectly okay with you if they make up their own rules? If they only obey you when it's convenient for them to do so, I.E. when you're around or standing over their heads. What if their morale code thinks it's just fine to mutilate animals? Rape the girl; at the end of the street? Or kill you when you sleep? What if their "moral code" sees nothing wrong with that behavior? You won't 'dictate to them' what rules of the house you want enforced, and you make the claim here that you have no rights to authority in their lives?

Relativism is ABSURD, if everyone had the freedom to make up their own moral code as they see fit then you'd have anarchy and chaos. You and I may find those acts disgusting, but hey, who are we to judge others who are just fine with them in their personal morale code?? When one takes relativism to it's logical conclusion things get ludicrous. Speed limits are for everyone, if you have trouble getting to your destination in the allotted time, then LEAVE SOONER. If it was perfectly okay for everyone on the road to drive based on their own person preferences then the roads would not be safe for your wife to drive your kids to soccer practice in the family van.

Relativism taken to it's logical outcome is outright absurd.

Nobody cries when cameras are used to convict a sex offender, or catch a bank robber or to convict someone of child abuse. But, when someone gets a ticket, that's when they start to complain. To those who don't believe in using cameras to catch traffic violations, should we not convict someone of rape if they were caught on camera? I really want to hear a response to that.
