i got this email from a close friend
can any up state New Yorker verify this info

THIS IS NOT A JOKE...
New York State started a pilot program upstate north of Albany on the Northway to catch speeders using the Easy Pass system. Recording devices were installed at intervals along the highway. Once an Easy Pass equipped vehicle passes, the device registers the account number and the time. Same is again registered at the next "check-point". Based upon the distance between the register points and the posted speed limit, the state is sending speeding tickets in the mail to the guilty persons.

Because every driver does not have Easy Pass, the State is "perplexed" as what to do to impose the system state-wide. The solution has been found. Soon all new vehicle registration stickers will have a metal strip or chip imbedded in same. This will take the place of the Easy Pass system as stated above. When a vehicle passes the registering device, the strip will relay all the information.

This is not fictional. New York State contracted with VERIZON to install the system. The system has already been installed and the entire Bronx River Parkway in Westchester County has been "wired" for when the new system begins. Once the State makes the new program public and advises all motorists of the potential for numerous speeding tickets, it will also reveal that the system has already been installed.

Another reason that will be given for the new system is to enable the authorities to track stolen vehicles, to trace kidnap victims, to monitor and trace suspected criminals and terrorists, etc.

Don't worry I'm sure some talented individual/s will devise a way to defeat the system

Sounds moronic to me. Why? Well, this is one reason........"Recording devices were installed at intervals along the highway. Once an Easy Pass equipped vehicle passes, the device registers the account number and the time. Same is again registered at the next "check-point". Based upon the distance between the register points and the posted speed limit, the state is sending speeding tickets in the mail to the guilty persons."

Why install "sensors" at intervals along the highway when they can ALREADY TELL how fast you are going from toll to toll? It registers the time at one toll, then the time at the next, and they could send your ass tickets all day long without having to spend a nickel on any new "sensors."

I haul ass up and down the Thruway weekly......HAUL ASS. I have yet to get a summons, tho your results may vary.

So what happens when you pass the first sensor and before you hit the second one, daylight savings time goes into effect. The sensors would then detect that you have just traveled back in time. I wonder what the fine for that is.

I wonder if you can sue them back for the freeway being backed up and it took you (lets say) twice as long to get from point A to point B?
