Did a camera catch the incident or a policeman? You would love driving here around th KINKI area, as it is normal to follow behind trucks which block ou t the red light! haha! Everyone just follows behind and shoots through the red light!!! Drivers know this, so they usually allow it ! haha!

then Bad luck of the draw! :( In 2004 I was clocked at the start of the Xmas season driving home from a lesson, 8pm dark on a 2 lane country type road , no traffic, and 40km limit roadway......so I accelerated to 80kph and damn...radar caught me! It was Xmas season and the cops had set up a radar trap....in the end, I had to pay $600 !!! OUCH! the fine increments every 10km over the posted speed!

The government's getting greedier and greedier. It's time government is seen as a necessary evil rather than the Great Provider of All Things. Same thing's happening is the Colonies, by the way.

They're desperate for revenue these days here in California. A friend got caught by a camera and paid $600 fine. I wonder if fines have kept up with rate of inflation, or.... ::)

John im still trying to find a Nissan at work where i can drive through the lights or a speed camera at over 186mph and apparently its just too quick to register the car on camera.
How that would work in a built up area in a 40 zone may be a tad dangerous though.Then again the flash could always activate a bit of Lume on my watch....LoL. :)

Did you get to drive it? I've always wanted a "Z", put I'd prefer an older model with an inline 6.


Best,
Myles
No, I did not have the time ??? But next time I'm back in Vancouver I'll beg him to let me drive it. He drives his Z only on the weekends! haha!
I drive a Nissan 1997 Stagea wagon with same 2.5L motor as the regular Skylines!..no turbo though haha!
