Fighting dc speeding camera, has anyone tried this? - March 5, 2017, 12:17 PM

Got a ticket for $100 (!!!!!) from a goddamned camera in DC, it's not about the money it's about sticking it to a shitty system.

So found this online, anyone tried something similar?

You do realize the guy who runs that site is a complete nut job and claimed sovereign citizen rights in some of his interactions?

In the comments section, seems that people have tried the same with no success.

The more important question is why were you speeding in the first place? HMMM???

I don't understand how people get tickets from those. They're easy to see and they put up signs warning people.


ALL MY HEROES ARE RUSSIAN...GO CAPS!

Well you see, Norm, itís like thisÖA herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven

Not in DC. Oftentimes they're hidden behind columns or other obstacles with little to no indication that they're there. Then you have the short ones that stand about 4' tall with no lines in the road. Fairly easy to spot if you're looking for them but equally easy to miss if you're not. DC gives no fucks, it's a money-making enterprise in the name of safety.

It's on them to prove it was you who committed the offense. Just say it was Rob.

I got one on South Dakota Ave coming back from Costco. I turned left onto SD Ave at 33rd Pl. SD Ave is a 4-lane divided highway at that point, however the speed limit is an artificially low 25 mph. I was going 39 mph thinking it was at least a 35 mph zone based on the type of road. What's more, the speed limit is not even posted in that stretch between 33rd Pl. and the camera which is just a few hundred feet away, so I had no idea what the speed should be. Here's the camera, unmarked:

I've considered joining the National Motorists Association. They apparently pay your speeding tickets for you if you're a member. You just need to fight them in court and lose.

https://www.motorists.org/

As long as the speed limits for the area are set properly for the conditions, there shouldn't be a problem with speed cameras unless you're actually traveling at an unsafe speed. The problem is that speed limits are often artificially low which leads to people traveling at a safe speed being popped.

They reimburse up to 300 a year. Membership costs $35.00... worth it?

Not bad. I've received too many speeding camera tickets so I'd say it's worth it.

Note that you have to contest the ticket (and lose) in order for them to pay your ticket. This is a bit more inconvenient as you'll have to show up in court, but hey, $100 is $100...

I have contested 2 tickets in DC (by mail), one for speed camera, and one for parking.

Neither time did anyone ever get back to me to escalate to arbitration, nor was a court notice sent.

Speed camera ticket was years ago, parking last summer.

Guess it was more trouble than it was worth for them to pursue.

Failure to display a tag is only $50.....saves you a ton in the long run.
