Hello!!!

The weather is amaaaaaazin! Im a big fan despite the bumbles......... HOWEVER...... was going a liiiiitttlllleeee bit too fast yesterday and pretty sure I got clocked by a speed camera.... Just been looking at some of these speed camera detectors on the internet becauase ive already got 3 pts on the license and dont really want any more or ill be with out a car soon enough. My mate swears by his Novus Alpa. Novus do a complete range of products. If you have a look on here they've pretty much got the whole product line: http: (link removed)

Basically has any one used any of these before and can they recomend?

cheers

You don't need any device the car doesn't already have. They are the throttle and the brake. If you aren't going too fast then there isn't a problem. You already have THREE against you! Where I am you would save a ton as your license would be revoked and registrations in your name pulled - problem solved,

I don't like the "Big Brother" thing totally but most of what is advancing in technology is plate recognition for stolen, vehicles seen in a crime, and more just driving thru parking lots if the # matches a list then they have the car. For that it's a good thing. So far for tickets the registered owner (they can't charge the driver) can get a ticket or fine for assorted moving violations or not paying a toll but so far doesn't go against a specific driver as it really doesn't know that.

As much as sometimes it feels like it, truth is we are sharing public roads and to use them is a privilege NOT a right! Guess it comes with age - I don't want to be hit or hurt by someone (the driver) with a long list of violations, no insurance etc. If you don't like the rules just don't drive..........

I totaly agree about the speed/red lite camera being used for issueing tickets to registered owner. many families have cars with multiple drivers or a college kid using the second car in household thats still in parents name till kid gets credit established. Or a good samaritin loans a friend a car for whatever reason. .When a infraction is photo'ed a warning shold be sent to the owner .If there is mutiple infractions then a officer should contact the owner.That is what they get paid to do . If I got a photo ticket and was not the driver I would want to use my right to cross examine my accuser. I dont think they have the cameras talking YET.
