unfortunately the only way to test how to beat it is to try and beat it and failure is expensive. It would be nice to setup a test environment and try different products to beat these things.

That's because it hasn't been processed through a digital editor yet. The feds have an "digital imager" that focus' the object x10 and it can be pretty well defined after all is said & done. (one of our crew got a ticket mailed to him - said the photo was a better portrait than his DL)

I agree, it sucks but it's becoming common-place. They say it's for our safety, but it's the excuse that they've been looking for - they supposedly now have a reason to watch over us. (I smell rental car fun in the making...)

I wonder, in PA a $50 fine ends up being $110 or so, is this normal in other states or does PA just suck when it comes to tickets?
I created a new thread for this, http://www.unitedbimmer.com/forums/u...c-tickets.html

if you ever come out the Sf area we should take a day off and get a rental car with insurance. Well show those assholes what unsafe is.

You're on bro. We can do a "door handle delete" against one of their poles. Wonder if their cams work while moving? (like 30ft straight down)

(Note: My guys are planning in the near future a "Rental Car Rodeo" we haven't picked the city yet, but we already have the OK from our "video bros" to do a 3 cam shoot when we do it)
