    Does this a object make photographs??


    Here is the a picture of the object: (sorry, it's small)

    And here are the specs:

    affic&subcat=DOT%20Speed%20Awareness

    A most advanced Portable Radar Speed Display System ever offered to the
    Traffic Safety Industry.

    * High efficiency/output 18-inch CMS LED display meets MUTCD
    requirements ‹ 1000+ feet of visibility.
    * Rugged, compact trailer enables easy towing and setup for highway
    and Municipal applications.
    * Extended mounting height of the radar
    display and speed limit sign allows for greater
    visibility and true MUTCD conformance.
    * Solar Powered with Battery Back-up Systems.
    * Violator alert and over-speed features are standard.
    * ITS communication interfacing options available.
    * Accessory device outputs for connecting extra warning lights
    and/or sirens also available.


    Think about it and how it is similar to digital camera technology.

    No.
    It uses radar for speed detection...has no need for images.

    So no...you won't be getting a speeding ticket in the from an image of your
    license plate.
    (I got one in hte early days of photo enforcement in San Diego, for turning
    late in a left turn lane...$340!!!)

    Yoinks! Around here they don't nail you for anything more than $100.

    We have a problem intersection here where people regularly run the red
    to make a left hand turn.

    The intersection has red light cameras, but the contractor that was
    supposed to install the one for the left turn lane hasn't done anything
    in two years. Annoying, to say the least, as it backs up traffic trying
    to get to the highway.

    simple question.

    Wow, are you ever in the wrong newsgroup. But, I doubt this is a camera.
    We have them all over town. They just warn "you" to slow down and take it
    easy.

    Any cheap radar detector will find these things.

    | Yes, I could have been more clear but I assure you it is on topic. Stop
    | freaking out.
    |
    | But everyone missed the point so i'll drop it.
    |
    | Just wondering the the sensitize surface that the image is created on
    | resides on a DSLR.

    How can such a device be On Topic in a dSLR News Group or a 35mm film News group.

    Are you also saying that it takes recreational photos ?

    NOT !

    |

    You mean like a News group like; alt.photography ? That would have been more apropos since
    it is a general News Group on photography.

    I can't see even if the device took photios it would be On Topic in a dSLR News Group or
    35mm film and it certainly wouldn't be taking recreational photos now would it.

    I was talking about photography and digital photography, conceptually
    and theoretically. The device I mentioned was symbolic. I don't think
    that's off topic.

    I will keep my conversations more literal for you. My apologies. And I
    will keep my mouth shut so someone else will not be offended by their
    own misinterpretations.

    Lessee:
    Detects four-dimensional real events.
    Displays its interpretation in a visible medium.
    "Set display modes are adjustable to your needs by use of easy to
    operate switches"
    Hmmm.

  13. $100 bucks? I've been up in your neck of he woods and gotten tickets for
    more then 100 bucks. And don't come down to my neck of the woods and talk
    on your cell phone because that will cost you at least 100 bucks. :)

    No photos, but it has communication interfacing technology as a choice,
    so the cop down the road can book you.

    Which is problematic, considering how woefully inaccurate the ones I've
    driven past have been at times.

    If they make it, someone will want one for themselves to play with, ipso
    facto it will become recreational.


    Like ummm, whatever dude. Whatever floats ya boat!

    There are some similarities, but according to the definition you posted,
    its not a camera that makes photographs, its a camera that senses motion.

    It can't take pictures without a camera. They are used in my area to alert drivers that
    they are speeding. If it directly led to speeding tickets, I'd know about it because the
    grapevine and the local paper keep me informed. At most, it can send a message when a
    speeding car is seen,but I doubt that would hold up in court in our area.

    In message <>,
    The scary thing about automated speed-enforcement is that it could be
    done quite literally, whereas real police officers know that posted
    limits are ridiculously low for low-to-medium volume on dry pavement in
    good lighting on many stretches of road, and generally enforce only at
    10 to 20 MPH above posted.

    One stretch of parkway that I use to commute has a posted 45 MPH speed
    limit, and the quality of pavement, width of lanes, etc, have nothing
    about them to suggest a speed limit so low. If an automated system
    ticketed people going 50 MPH, not only would everyone be getting
    ticketed at first, but as soon as people started getting tickets and
    driving 45 MPH, there would be massive traffic jams, rendering the road
    unusable. It is only usable now because people ignore the ridiculous
    posted limit and drive 60 to 75 MPH through the section.

    FINALLY! YES! Someone sees where I was going with this!

    I might have better analogies in the future but I am going to word it
    better and wait till these flames cool down . Peace.
