Re: Speed Cameras

i wouldn't complain if theres no fine sent out. In melb theres an intersection in the city that always gets me at night time, so i thought anyway, it turns out that the trams were making sparks in a street next to it, i thought they were flashes ya see ... ey? pretty silly i reckon.

Re: Speed Cameras

I was racing this tool on my way into the city and we were coming up to a bend where the speed camera is. Luckily for me I remembered and slowed down whilst the idiot went past me - enough to cover my car up in the speed camera shot lol - and I got off scot free hahaha

But yeah I've slipped up a couple of times and gotten the camera flash but no fine. These days I take it easier.

Re: Speed Cameras

To actually answer the question, I believe the cameras are digital and use optical media (like a CD-ROM) to store the images. It can also take up to several weeks for the Involuntary $peed Tax™ notice to arrive...
