Pattaya testing speed-trap cameras

The cameras automatically snap photos of the license plates of vehicles that run the red light or speed through the intersection.

Can they do both? I thought it needed to be one or the other..........

many towns in Florida (my former) have thrown out this system. some judges automatically summarily dismiss any tickets resulting from "red light cameras".  Seems the system is basically a money grab for the towns and company that installs, manages, and issues tickets (from the cameras). Seems citizens became irate and made it known.

 

get ticky in mail (or not) and it's on your record, and who do you argue with that it was in error? call the camera into court?

This is about Pattaya, not Florida.

There are 2 on Thappraya Road in front of Sugar Hut in both directions (just installed yesterday) and 2 more on Thepprasit Road near the Weekend market. 

Its 's easy to install those cams but the biggest problem will be to keep them well maintained. Let's see.

Speed limits in Thailand are:

Town and city: 60 km/h
Open Roads: 90 km/h
Motorways: 120 km/h

So Sukhumvit, running through Pattaya, a multi lane highway, probably classed as an interstate highway would be 60 or 90km/h?

And as cops never check the blue book, how can they know that we have a fake plate ? What is the fine for fake plates ?

Never seen a sign anywhere.

 

It's 80 everywhere.

Another great idea. 

These are outlawed in many states in the US after they found that they increased the number of accidents rather than reduced them. 

 

People were so afraid of getting a ticket that they’d lock up theirs brakes when the light turned yellow, get rear ended and then pushed out into the intersection to maybe be hit by another car. 

 

In Minnesota, the state even ended up refunding the money people paid for tickets. T

Seems to be a case of damned if you do and damned if you don't. Many posters want law enforcement but when it happens the whining starts.
