Funny thing is the golf carts only go so fast so if you get caught speeding, just go faster... Ha ha. But, no lights.
Yea, well their "ticket" has a limited impact. If you're a resident then you're bound by the CC&Rs, which would have a clause in it permitting the HOA to fine them for those violations. Depending on how those rules are written, they could potentially make the residents responsible for their guests' unpaid tickets. And of course, in any "closed community" type of environment, they could bar a "speed racer" guest from further entry. But in none of the above cases would there be any points added to someone's driving record.
Standard disclaimer: I'm not a lawyer and you shouldn't take any of the above as legal advice.
There are college campuses which have campus police forces that have arrangements with local police forces, and they actually can issue tickets that are the Real Deal (at least in California I've seen them; don't know if Nevada has any). I personally think it's unlikely that the local police would make similar arrangements with the security of a closed/private residential area, but it's always possible. Given that they're using hand speed checking devices (I'm guessing radar with no camera), as long as the other criteria are met, they might be able to issue an actual ticket. I'd suggest checking with the local police department (as a starting point) to see if that's the case here. (Again, just my opinion here.)
That said, they're still not fixed cameras, so wouldn't be appropriate on the map.
I'm deleting speed cameras as I find them. Maybe I should PM those with good IDs to let them know ...
I would encourage you to do so. I know it can get tedious trying to send a PM and then getting the "no such user" message for each and every camera, but it could help you in the long run by letting those who you can
reach (and pointing them to the Wiki page which shows what those cameras actually look like) of the law and that they're seeing the wrong thing. In that it save you from having to delete the next
camera they add, anyway.
