Photo radar cameras are usually inside vans not on top. I remember they were usually astro vans with the large side window. At night you would see a flash as you went by.

I've had my share of stupid fast driving, and will never do it again in Canada. In the US on the highway where I can get away with murder, may be a different story.

And by the way, the newer cameras take a picture of the driver aswell, if it looks like you, take a hike, cause you're screwed.

Ask me, I know. I got 3 pictures not long ago in the mail. One of me driving, one of my vehicle, and one of my plate.

By the way, Soldomatic, my primary car has more than double the displacement of your car. So I wouldn't be so ready to jump the gun and say that I drive a K-car mister "I'm hot ****" Oh, and mine has 3.92 gearing, from the factory. And no, it's not a muscle car
WOW, your car is really SPEACIAL!
What i'm saying its stupid, cause its such a waste of peoples money, i mean theres so many loopholes its not funny, if it can take a pic of the driver, then UP WITH SKI MASKS i SAY!
And what are they gonna do outlaw ski masks, sunglasses, hats, its stupid and pointless!

By the way the picture posted was a Marksman laser gun and not photo radar.

Personally I think photo radar is shit and wicked. The 400 series highway easily supports 120km and the govt knows it.

How can they expect to slow down traffic and the damm gta 400 highway are already packed with traffic.

They should release and do a survey when last have you heard that speeding no matter how fast on the gta 400 highway has caused an accident.

They should raise the damm gta 400 series highway to 120km and set up photo radar at maybe 130km.

Better believe if the prick brings in photo radar on the next election voters will remember and the pc will say I will remove photo radar then he has my vote.

I assume a radar detector will pick up this unit, and since this is a photo radar it would be a continuous radar not in burst?

I'm not too worried. Just in case though, I got a set of those anti-photo radar plate covers at some shop around scarborough. It makes the letters not show up in the photo.

And no, they do not need to be in the vehicle, and here in Calgary they have a brilliant way of setting them up. On the backs of speed change signs etc.

The most commonly known speed trap is the near permanent van in the CBC parking lot on Memorial. It sits there, and catches so many people it's not even funny.

I don't know why people are getting so mad because they can't speed like morons anymore. If you want to speed at absurd speeds, go out on the highway where your radar detector won't help you even if there is a cop shooting radar. Honestly I'm tired of hearing my friends and family bitch and whine about getting tickets for speeding. Every single photo radar camera here in Calgary is setup to take a photo at over 8km/h over the limit. It takes 3 pictures of you, one of the driver, one of the plate and one of the "vehicular scene" so that they know if you're passing and whatnot. They won't really ticket you unless you're going 13+ over the limit, so keep your pants on. If you're reasonable about it you're fine, you don't even get demerits, so be thankful it's not a real cop.

*flamesuit and end rant*

Edit - Oh, and we have completely unmarked personal vehicles permitted for running radar/laser etc. Including a 2003 Z06. I wasn't ready for that thing to pull me over, I tell you...
Seriously man all your posts seem to be outsmarting other people or trying to make them inferior to you.
First it was your stupid S-class to 7 series comment now this. Do us a favour and please post some pics of your super car cause from all I know is your just some 13 year old hill billy

Photo radar also doesn't (at least it didn't) affect your insurance since they couldn't prove who was driving the car. So if more photo radar means less of the other kind of radar I'm all for it.
