It appears that New York's automated speeding ticket system isn't going anywhere.

Drivers in Orange, Erie, Bronx, Essex, Monroe, Nassau, Suffolk and several other counties could receive a speeding ticket in the mail without even realizing they were caught. Last year the New York State Department of Transportation began setting up speed cameras to automatically identify drivers who were going too fast. The controversial cameras have been drawing criticism because they do not necessarily punish the driver who is speeding, but rather the owner of the vehicle caught on radar.

Vehicles caught speeding in designated work areas will receive automated tickets that can total up to $100. First-time offenders will receive a $50 ticket, those who are caught twice within a year and a half will be charged $75 and any vehicle that has broken the speed limit three or more times will be fined $100. Because of the nature of the automated ticket process, none of these fines include points or increases to insurance rates.
