Red Light Enforcement Zone - Phoenix

 

I was traveling in the Phoenix area and recently went through an intersection that had signs reading "Red Light Enforcement Zone". The odd thing is that there were no red light cameras at this intersection. I've seen the signs elsewhere andusually there are cameras mounted nearby. I don't know if this is a location where a camera was removed and the signs were left in place or what. Has anyone else seen anything like this? Is there some type of enforcement that we're missing?

What intersection?

Location?

Do you have the rl database loaded for your unit?
The poi-factory database is accurate for Phoenix.

There were two locations where cameras were moved.

Cheap Way

Maybe it is the cheap way to achieve compliance without the expense of actually buying a camera. grin

FPichon, didn't you also say in a separate thread that 2 more cameras are scheduled for installation? If so, maybe the signs went in first.

Two cameras were moved

Peoria has two more to install when road construction is completed, and Miss POI has the information for these.

In Phoenix, most locations with cameras have signs at all approaches to the intersections.

Some time back (at least 8 months ago) two cameras were moved, but the equipment, poles, and signs were removed from those locations.

There used to be an errant sign at Cactus and 32nd or 40th st, but I do not recall having seen it lately.

Tucson does that also. Meaning.. no cameras (yet..) but the police will have their eyes peeled for that intersection, since it's been a habitual red light running location.

Phoenix is #1 red light running city in the USA.. Tucson is #2..

The state of AZ. wants to add between 150 and 190 new red light running/speeding camera in the next (forgot how many years) to increase revenue.. I mean safety..

Welcome to the Grand Canyon state.. bring your checkbook.. but don't drink the water.
