Radar Camera Systems
Law enforcement regards these systems as effective and efficient methods to keep roads safe. Quite often though, they dish out harsh consequences to an undeserving public.
Found in vans along the side of highways or installed at intersections, photo radar systems measure the speed of cars passing by. If a motor vehicle is detected traveling faster than a specified speed threshold, the camera activates and captures images of the passing car. The data are reviewed by law enforcement and citations are issued.
When To Hire A Lawyer
A critical issue for most people is maintaining the ability to drive. A speeding ticket may put driving privileges at risk. Under Arizona’s point system, civil citations like speeding tickets are assigned a certain number of points. When a person reaches 8 points, his or her driver’s license may be suspended. Speeding tickets are assigned 3 points.
