I got my first photo radar ticket last summer in the city. Speed sign was posted on the other side of the traffic lights so that's the speed I was doing. Unfortunately I was still in a 60 zone...I was slowing down yesterday as well, he got me doing 135, I thought the limit was 100, was actually 80 so I caught a huge break. Cop was nice, just said he couldn't ignore it but dropped it to 115.

Did you get your car back on friday???

You are so lucky! I was actually doing 185 on the west highway and slowed to 140...thank God.

Yes, I did get my car back on Friday and it looks as good as new!

Glad I went that route!

wow....just got back from an overnight trip to edmonton. Lots of police on the QEII but I was only doing max 125 on cruise as the radar detector was going off way too many times on the way there and back. Had to go wash all the damn bugs off too. I hate that part of summer

I've had two photo radar tickets in town, and got pulled over on I90 between Spokane and Seattle last year. Cop pulled me over for a lousy 11mph over, and dropped the ticket to 10mph over for me.

It's great to have it fixed! As for the bugs, I bought one of these from online. It's more for keeping them out of my condenser and rad, but works great!

Where did you buy this? I have a really long drive this summer I am taking in my Camaro and I think this might save my front end. Orginally I was just going to put painters tape on it.

Mike, I got mine here http://ohio-speed.com/p-1390-2010-20...-mask-bra.aspx

They must be having a demand for sales in Canada as they have a drop down list that tells us what shipping here is.

They are great to deal with. There is a technique to putting it on if you have a splitter. Seems like it won't fit, but if done right, it slips right on!

We r camping this weekend, saw a red convertible in innisfail yesterday.

Watch for cops on secondary highways, I got my first speeding ticket, thankfullly the cop dropped my speed....could have been very bad.
Don't feel bad. We all have our bad days. Thanks for the complement on my car! I'm sure we will see each other again. Both of my girls go to school in Bowness also. Small world. It's great to see other Camaro's on the road. Especially the ones you know are on the forum. It's like "Hey I know you"... Even though I've never met you there is a sense of knowing. Got out for a zip tonight. I'm almost at 200km. 2200 more to go till break in is over and I can hear that supercharger sing! Hope you have a better week this week after a relaxing weekend of camping.

Thanks! When I got it, it took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do with it :P in Canadian tire, I was with my friend getting some adhesive remover for his car. They do look pretty sweet beside each other don't they? (Took a peek inside your car btw :P)

There is or was a Synergy Green that was always over by Chinook Winds Park in Airdrie when I went on the weekends last year. Haven't seen it yet this year. Do either of you know the owner?
