new & interesting places for your GPS

Question for a newbie on traffic camera

 

Just wondering if having a red light and ticket camera warning on a GPS activated, if founded, is illegal in certain states?

Probably not

I doubt it is, however if you know the states you are concerned about you might want need to research state by state.

At Present No

But you never now what the future will bring... There is talk in some communities of making the gps illegal.. Cell phones as well...

Edit: I should modify that statement... No in the United States, I believe I have read that in some areas of Europe speed camera pois are illegal and possibly red light camera pois as well

GPS & Cellphone

There are reasons offered for making these illegal.

For cell phone, a national group has shown that even hands-free talking has been in accidents at a rate worst then DWI.

GPS is more related to where they are mounted, such as in the middle of your windshield that can blocks your line of sight.

I imagine if communists were

I imagine if communists were to take over, then yes, it's possible that GPS warnings could be made illegal.

But by then, we will probably have much more stuff to worry about, and this will be trivial.

Even sites like this will be illegal by then, LOL.

Thanks

well, Perhaps I am asking the question because I am from the most communist county in north america... A county driven by environmentalist/communist people who are always trying to find ways to let the government control our life smile

LOL I am sorry to hear that.

LOL I am sorry to hear that. Then sadly, yes, your right to own a GPS and have it warn you could be at risk. sad

I know a couple of cities in US the individual residents can not chose the style of their houses, one only allows old English style the other has to be traditional Spanish style. Wonder how communist you think of them?

County or Country?

powerages Uhmm why don't you

just move completely away from California, to be sure your far enough away from the ism's you don't like?

Although those aren't Commie's or Socialist's, their just Do-Gooders, you know the type of person that can't stand to stay out of your business because they know whats better for you than yourself. I think in the past they were called Busybody's.

Legality of Red Light Camera POI

California municipalities post a notice of a red light camera a distance before the intersection so a POI giving notice should not be illegal. The benefit of the POI is that you can miss noticing the posted warning by distraction or familiarity, but the POI alert again focuses attention.

Effective Jan. 1, 2009, the GPS can be affixed to the windshield if the suction cup mount is attached to a five square inch area of the lower left side or seven inch square of the lower right side of the windshield.

Not many people want their units in these locations.

I have mine below the rear view mirror at dash level...

It is the same place I put my external antenna for my old streetpilot... I have never been stopped for it and I have gotten a ticket but there wasn't any mention of the gps. (This is in California where it was supposed to be illegal until recently). You also aren't suppose to have anything hanging from the mirror in California, but I see numerous folks driving around with their disabled placards hanging from the rear view mirror. (That blocks the view a lot more than a small gps). I suppose it all depends on the police officer and if he/she is having a bad day etc... shock (A nice way of saying they are a "fill in your own adjective")

:O)

I did'nt thought that communism was a hot topic like that on a GPS Forum... I am not a big fan of cameras.... it's similar to saying that it is now forbidden to borrow your vehicule to someone... or you can as long as you pay upcoming tickets....

I hate when govt enlarge is control on our life... I said county... because province might have been better but I was trying to use a familiar term for you guys.... and our province is so small (in term of pop) that it can be considered as a county.... Here, it is like a poor california... a govt with a high tendency for control but without the money and the size to have policies that inlfuence companies like in california....
