Yea they did. They sent it to my old NC address since that's where I moved from and the car is registered. They had 5 pics on the website of it when I paid.

I heard the red light cameras photograph the front license plate in CO but don't feel like testing it out.

They are usually just mini-vans parked somewhere on the side of the road. They can be difficult to spot and they move from place to place so you can't really rely on them being in certain areas consistently.
Some "normal" guy in AZ a year or two ago got tagged by one of these vans, pulled over, opened the van door and shot the guy to death

Of course they caught him since they had pics of his plate.

Strange but true.

Im guessing you just tried to pull them straight up. You need to try this.

Disconnect the strap, roll down the window, get a good grip (one hand inside door panel one hand outside), rock the door open to closed (obviously dont latch it just use that motion) while also pulling up.

Make sure to watch the hinges and you'll see it starting to slide out, be sure not to whack yourself in the chin when it releases

I also found out today, according to what my vin said on dodges computer, that I have a Dana 44 for a rear axle. Not a rubicon, Sahara, or even sport edition, thought I only had a 35 under the ass end :s

So the van actually pursued the guy? These one's I'm pretty sure are unmanned or remote operated but I could be wrong. And to get shut in a door to death?

Put on a Flowmaster cat back exhaust this afternoon, it took a little more than an hour, most of it from trying to pry the driver's side hanger loose. The Flowmaster sounds GREAT btw.

Charlotte used to have these and red light cameras, but the NC Court of Appeals made them take them down citing NC's General Statute which requires 90% of proceeds from fines go to the school districts. But, that wasn't happening. Instead 90% was going into the pockets of the companies running them and only 5% to the schools (last 5% to the city). I think the programs only lasted about a year or so.

I painted my tow hook things on the front bumper. Finally got the original spare tire and rim from the dealer. I can't believe it's a brand new tire. lol Also ordered my 5th wheel and tire to match the 35's I have on the ground right now.

Here you go. Glad I didn't go any darker than 22%. It would have been darker than the factory hard top shade.
