Ohio has decided that Speed Camera's .. the portable ones (Hand Held) can be used by local and state police .. and used at on-ramps and overpasses...

and you get a speeding ticket in the mail.... FYI...

Might be time to buy one of them license plate covers that doesn't allow a clear photo of the numbers beneath it. (I actually wonder if those work or not, seems like they would. Anybody know for sure?)

It seems to me that the PD has to prove that YOU were the one speeding, and not the guy/gal that you lent your bike and jacket to. That's kind of the point behind the request for your license and registration in a traffic stop. If you were to challenge the citation, it seems to me that it could be difficult for them to prove that it was YOU, if the rider were wearing a full face helmet... It also might be difficult for them to produce a witness to the alleged infraction.

Someone stole my motorcycle, and later I found it, so I didn't bother filing a police report...

Not sure this defense would work... I mean it makes sense, but I don't know... I'd rather come up with a name... I'd say "Ironmk had my bike out for a ride...he's the one that was speeding, Officer"

paying ticket AND court costs AND parking fees AND loss of 2 days pay..
just a point.. I did NOT get a photo speeding ticket..
but last month I did get pulled over for speeding out of a small town... 45 in a 35.. I was accelerating to the 45 mph sign
and this is my first ticket in 25 years... even the police officer said..." I hate to do this" with a great record.. BUT......
