I was going "73 in a 60" but it just says 73 because I was going over 72.. which apparently you're legally allowed to do over the limit before it snaps a pic.. I am not sure on the next speed level if you're over it the ticket is more $$, but I was in the 73-? speed which costs me $190.80

Does anybody know how they handle tickets like that if somebody borrows your car and gets a ticket?

Got any friends in a legit service garage that can 'fix' the broken speedometer that was reading incorrectly and present you with a receipt for 'work performed' ?

The ticket automatically goes to the registered owner.. and it would be the owner's responsibility to talk to whoever would have been driving the vehicle at the time...

Baha Metro you gotta love those! But try and appeal it, you don't have to go to court, you just go talk to someone and just the fact that you are there usually makes them reduce it and maybe even take the ticket back unless you have gotten other ones before.

lol
That sucks man. Around Portland, Or they use to have a lot of red-light photo stuff, which I don't mind so much. I only got my picture taken once while driven a car at a dealership and I just covered my face (years ago).
The radar camera kind of sucks though, at least the ticket isn't horribly expensive.

That sucks. You should invest in that stuff you spray on the plate so the camera cant read it. Dont know how well it works though.

anyone amazed by my reply?

any accountant worth anything will be able to get around the extra money easily and it will probably be sent back or credited to you

I always feel like going up to a photo radar camera hidden inside a car and breaking into it and stealing the camera. It'd be nice to have a nice $10,000 camera, it's unfortunate that they always have someone sitting in the car.
