i can see an instant "avenue of missuse " for this technology :

` environmental activists ` - systematically targeting the owners of 4*4s , sports cars etc

admittedly my views are biased towards the UK - but if its trialed here - they will do it

also - it openes up a new front in " taxi wars "

The alleged ticket for any such violation will be deemed void, especially when these so called tickets are mailed. According the law, in most states:

. You must look into what constitutes legal service in your state. For example, in Arizona, a ticket issued only by mail does not constitute liable legal service, and according to state statute rule 4i, such a thing is dismissed after 120 days. .

After doing some research, many states, require that any tickets be issued by an actual " person". That can be police, constable, etc. In these states, a mailed ticket can be refuted in court, because the law would state that a ticket must be issued and accompanied by a signature to make the infraction valid.
That's pretty self explanatory, but I'm sure the readers of this thread can take it even further.

Now its been suggested that police are now implementing " snitch tickets".


. . . in Bakersfield, Corona, Daly City, Del Mar, El Cajon, Elk Grove, Emeryville, Encinitas, Escondido, Garden Grove, Gardena, Glendale, Hawthorne, Hayward, Inglewood, Laguna Woods, Loma Linda, Los Alamitos, Marysville, Menlo Park, Millbrae, Modesto, Newark, Oceanside, Poway, Redding, Riverside, Rocklin, San Jose, San Leandro, San Mateo, Santa Ana, Santa Clarita, Solana Beach, South Gate, South San Francisco, Stockton, Union City, Victorville, Vista, Other California Towns, and Arizona Too

They send out fake red light camera "tickets," to bluff registered owners into providing info about the person who was driving their car or, to confirm that they (the registered owner) were the driver.

If the document you received does not give the name of the Court and its street address and phone number, or if it says, "Do not contact the Court" or "This is not a Notice to Appear," it's probably not a real ticket. It could be a fake - a Snitch Ticket - generated by the police.

Just a new dastardly deed infiltrated by the police. Another means of extortion. Pathetic if you ask me!

This doesnt make sense at all. Why would you advocate usage of a cell phone and it's applications while driving, to flag "Unsafe Driving?"

Anything is legal if it can make insurance companies more money. I wish I was wrong, but its literally as simple as that!

(in the UK you can "Opt in" to a new system where they connect what is effectively a "black box" to your car, it records location, speed, & probably everything else on modern cars and you get a good percetnage taken off your premium, im pretty sure sooner or later ALL cars will have that as standard.)

To hell with that. Honestly, I would love to see these greedy bastards sidelined by the people. Who will stop them? This isnt a lone incident, sadly.

There are bits and pieces that are added to our lives under the guise of "assistance, safety, and security" (for an added cost) that do nothing more than hinder our freedoms.

Dont buy into the garbage, folks!
