    After doing some googling they turn it over to a collection angency and if you still don't pay the state of iowa takes it out of your state income tax. Its only a $65.00 ticket in order to fight it I'd have to spend at least $20 in gas and 3 or 4 hours of my time/possibly miss some time at work.
    Bud, I'd call up a few news broadcasters, be pissed, explain this shit to them and with any luck, maybe one of them will broadcast that shit like this can and does happen to innocent people. If you're going to end up paying it anyway, might as well attempt to shut a few of the mother fuckers up who keep on telling me these speed cameras are good and there for our protection.

    agreed, least you can do is let it be known this unfair ticketing is happening. I've never gotten one, I havent even had a ticket since 2004...but I hate the way things are working. Makes you guilty to drive down the road...which im more pissed about since I just paid (read, way to fucking much) taxes on my new (USED) car. dafuq is that

    I dont believe at all that it comes out of your income taxes...thats not legal. They'd have to get a court order to do that. Also, someone in CR had the exact situation you did, they called the media, and within a week the ticket was gone.

    I like the idea of calling the media. These cameras are controversial enough. Get the discussion going and get them outta here.

    LOL... That would take a small amount of effort from a group of at least somewhat educated people. Not gonna happen around here! Most people don't know/care about their rights and only complain because they don't want to pay. Buncha fat, lazy, stupid fuckers who'd rather bitch and complain than actually try to be a part of something to change it.

    Just announced on the radio this morning that Clive will not renew their contract with Gatso and will not be enforcing their red light camera citations.

    Thank god. I'm surprised no one has taken them out by running into them. Like they do to all the signs around town. I have thought about it, buying a huge pile off clist and running into them. Im glad I haven't gotten one yet. My last ticket was going 100 in 65 by a unmarked trail blazer highway patrol. Didn't go to jail, car didn't get impounded, I paid the ticket and went to driving school at dmacc and kept my license and no sr22.I was lucky. But now its been almost 5 years and its still on my record. My job won't let me drive there vehicles til it drops off. Good luck fighting it. I never had any luck fighting tickets. I just pay them and move on. Price I paid to speed. Now I watch my speed. Its not worth it anymore
