Portable camera on a small trailer. Tickets are sent by mail a few weeks after the violation with a picture of your license plate. Whether it’s you driving or someone else, the ticket is yours and yours alone.
It is a self-contained machine, with the cameras
There is a small white two-wheeled trailer with a tall mast extended from it. It has at least two cameras and radar detector attached to it. If you are not paying attention you would probably think its a work station generator. It takes your picture and about 2 weeks later you will receive your ticket in the mail.
Once entering Victory Drive off Lapalco, the driver has to make a right turn. Within about a block or so off to the right side of the road past the industrial buildings is a wide driveway or short street with shade trees. It’s even dark during the daylight. Since the speed limit is 20 mph, it is very easy to vastly exceed that speed limit when coming off a major road. The policeman is usually in a patrol car flashing his radar at you.
