What also helps is that unattended speed enforcement is illegal in South Carolina. An actual living, breathing officer has to have witnessed the violation, made the measurement himself, made actual, person to person contact with the driver, issued the summons, and collected the drivers signature.

Unmanned photo traffic enforcement is a big no-no in SC.

Comment: Amazon S3 + duplicity + gpg + cron (Score 2, Informative) 287

I setup a backup system for a lawyer last year. Its basically a cron job that runs a script every night. It uses duplicity + gpg and stores everything on amazon s3. Its incredibly cheap. I store 6 months of revisions, with a full backup on the first weekend of every month, then incrementals after that. I perform regular restores and run a big md5sum job to ensure that the restores are working. I havent automated that stage of it yet, but so far so good. I'd be happy to send you the scripts if you want. PM me if youre interested.

One can't proceed from the informal to the formal by formal means.
