My job is of a field officer and I have to visit different places in US. Itís an interesting job, but there are many pros and cons with that like some times I have to face problems because of speed cameras. Do you people have any idea from where can I be saved from such mysterious traps and also abide traffic rules like a good citizen, cause being a citizen is also our primary job. Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi, Harpercool. Welcome to Fun and Safe driving!

I don't think there is a universal answer to your question. There are some sites on the internet that offer information on speed cameras locations, like this one: http://www.photoenforced.com/
I don't know how accurate they are, however...

You said it brother, being a good citizen is also a responsibility. I was also in your shoes for quiet a long time as I also have a field job. Then one day my colleague told me about this site, and it really clicked for me. It helps us to know the speed of the particular area and also briefs us of the awaiting traps.
I hope it will be a boon for you and all our people on wheels as it was for me.

Cons are the difficult one to get away. You should be well aware of the camera positions. You may not also think the real cops as cons because it may also lead you into trouble.

ONLY in france, did I see this...that you actually have a huge sign warning you 5 mins in advance about a speeding camera on the way! Result: everyone slows down for that bit of stretch, and the moment the camera passes, people are over speeding like mad! Seriously...
