Some Tennessee law enforcement agencies are using a new way to ticket drivers without ever pulling them over. It's possible through a new radar system.
Right now three Tennessee cities: Dover, Selmer and McKenzie, are using it.
Just like traditional radar, when an officer sees someone speeding, they pull the trigger and record the speed. But instead of turning on the lights, the ticket process has already begun.
Within two weeks, the $50 ticket will reach the driver's mailbox.
Just like a red light camera, drivers can argue their ticket.
Supporters say it increases safety on the roads.
Opponents say it does nothing to slow speedy drivers.
Police in Madisonville are using something similar to ticket speeders without pulling them over. We told you back in March they're using a "speed camera."
The cameras are usually stationary, but this one is mobile. Police are parking it in several locations around town.
If the device catches you speeding, you'll get a $50 ticket in the mail.
That ticket does not go on your permanent record.
