Well I had an early experience with camera traffic control! Back in the 90's I borrowed a friends rollback (yes Brian some people do have friends they trust!) to go to MO and pick up a mustang I'd bought off ebay. So while I was using his rollback on a Sunday to go get my car I "accidentally" exceeded the speed limit through an area near St. Louis.
So about a month later my friend gets a ticket in the mail with a picture of the back of his truck passing a speed limit sign, and an imposed digital speed above the limit in big bright red #'s in the middle of the picture, and the time and date @ the bottom.
The quality of the picture was very poor, and to be quite honest the license plate was not legible at all. Also all that could be seen was the back of a dirty, dingy rollback, and a wrecked mustang on the back of it! It didn't show what brand of truck it was, or even the color of the cab, let alone who was driving it.
(I'm sure they did some serious enhancement of the picture to find out who in KY owned the truck)
But when he got the ticket he did not remember loaning the truck to me. So he looked up the date on a calendar and found it was on a Sunday. Neither his junk yard or body shop were open on Sundays. Although sometimes his tow trucks did do towing on Sundays if called. So he looked up his logs showing all of that weeks wrecker calls and none of them fell on that Sunday, let alone in the St. Louis area (175 miles away).
So he had his wife call the # (to some business in Atlanta, GA) provided with the ticket and "explain that there musta been some kind of mistake!"
She was told "MAM THE PICTURES DO NOT LIE AND IF YOUR HUSBAND'S BUSINESS'S TRUCK IS THE ONE BELONGING TO THE LICENSE PLATE ON THE TRUCK IN THE PICTURE, THEN HE MUST PAY THE TICKET!"
No matter what she said made a difference to the arrogant and rude lady on the other end of the phone.
Well my buddy being a cool, calm, collective and reasonable natured man such as myself took and laid out his towing logs, the picture, the ticket, and the exact amount of cash for the fine on his desk and took a picture of it. He then put his picture in an envelope along with a letter explaining that there was no way possible it was his truck that far from home on a day that they were closed and that there were no wrecker calls! (and mailed it to the same company in Atlanta that had sent him the ticket!)
About a week later he received an envelope from a town near St. Louis where the camera was located. In it was a letter explaining that while they thought his method of paying the ticket was cute, it was not the way they did things. And that if he didn't pay the ticket they would put out a bench warrant on him, and post a "BOLO" (be on the look out) for the license plate on his truck, or any other tow trucks/vehicles bearing the name of either of his businesses (since he was gracious enough to provide them with that info in his letter), and if stopped the vehicle would be impounded and the driver arrested. Also included was a picture of his picture next to a pair of hand cuffs on a jail cell door!
I happened to be "back in town and at his body shop talking to his wife when he came in from running to the post office and several other places ranting raving and screaming about that "damn St. Louis ticket" and throwing the envelope on his wife's desk.
So while she was looking it over I asked him what it was about. He opened a drawer and pulled out the first one they had gotten and showed to me,while explaining it.
He and his wife were dumb struck when I started howling laughing and as I looked at the picture!
I just pulled the $ for the fine out of my pocket and reminded him about borrowing the rollback to go pick up the mustang on the back of it!
His wife fell out on the floor laughing with me while he was not as amused about it at first, but he was laughing about it too before long.
SO I am glad to hear that they now do a better job of showing who is actually driving as companies (& individuals DO NOT always know WHO is operating a particular vehicle at all times!)
