Due to a change in camera companies, the cameras in Middletown, OH are being re-done. Apparently, they have not been operating since the beginning of the year, but they are coming back at different locations and probably in greater numbers.
Thanks for keeping your eyes open. I have been waiting to hear word about this city. I have not removed the locations in the file yet until I know for sure which ones will not be replaced.
Please keep me up to date on the process.
I will do the best I can. Luckily, I do not live in Middletown, but I occasionally visit there. I have heard that they are considering adding them to nearby Hamilton also, but I don't think they are as far along.
I have been through several of the old locations in Middletown, and I did not see any of the equipment, so I think they are gone. Other than the 3 locations identified in the article I linked to above, I was unable to find any other locations and I don't really know if those 3 locations are operational yet.
There have been additional stories in the new stating that the cameras are now on in warning mode and will beging ticketing on 05/17/09. It appears that just the 3 new locations currently have cameras, but there are probably more in the works.
Here is another article announcing more cameras.
They are proposing to install red-light and speed cameras in school zones in order to bridge the budget gap in the city. Obviously, the concern is not about safety but revenue.
Looks like they have installed a few more cameras at various intersections. These apparently went live on October 4th. See the link for exact locations.
Thanks for the update. I travel through Middletown about once a month on business, so will download the updated red light camera data so that I don't fall foul of Middletown's revenue generation machine.
Thanks for letting us know about these. They have been slowly putting up more cameras this year and it is hard to keep track of them. It is too bad they are doing this. I keep hoping that they will have a ballot issue like some other cities have had, and ban them.
