Red Light & Speed Cameras for Michigan

 

Michigan is not listed as one of the States in the Red Light & Speed Cameras POI list. Is the state list just not updated or is there no information yet for Michigan?

Supposedly they are illegal in Michigan

In 2007, the state AG stated that red-light cameras were illegal. I do not know if anything has changed since then.

The coverage map appears to not show any red light cameras in MI.

According to the laws of aerodynamics, bumblebees cannot fly. But the bumblebees, not knowing the laws of aerodynamics, go ahead and fly anyway...

Don't do that.

Dear God, the title of your post scare the poop out of me. I thought you were announcing that they were being installed. I wouldn't have been surprised as the official state motto seems to be "Squeezing Blood from a Rock" (hmm, times are bad, we should take more).

Not having red light cameras is one of the only good things we've got going for us here.

No ticket cameras in Michigan.

Be glad you don't have them.
We need them illegal in the other states too.

Our state ones go off at end of month

Arizona will still have City and County leaches but our Goveror said no more illegals or Red Light cameras. Now lets throw out our City Council and County Suervisors and get rid of those lights also.

Though Texas have Red Light

Though Texas have Red Light Cameras, it's fine, just make driving safer.

Safety can result from cameras

I suspect that more people would support the installation of safety cameras if their municipality would present the results as Chattanooga has.

Same with Huntington Beach,

Same with Huntington Beach, CA, the mayor and City Hall has decided at this time not to install them. I hope for the residents of Orange County and Huntington Beach they actually make that their final decision

Why do you object to safety cameras?

There is no connection between ticket cameras and safety.

What possible connection could there be between an automated ticket sending system and safety?

If the police department wants to cite me for my alleged violation and appear in court against me to testify, OK.

I like to face my accuser.

I object to them putting a machine in that mails out tickets purely to make money. It's just not about safety. That's a smokescreen. A cover story.

The cameras are there purely to make money. And that's it.

In my city, it seems that safety is improved

Ticket cameras are the tools of crooks and weasels.

The government that put the cameras in usually with the complicity of a very highly paid vendor can *always* support their position no matter how ridiculous. No surprise there.

I especially liked page 18, they have 30% of the traffic driving below the 50 mph speed limit because of the ticket cameras. Can you imagine? The people are afraid to drive the speed limit?

That's fear, people afraid of having to pay a really expensive ticket.

Glad they are out of Arizona.

I hate automated enforcement, and I don't want it used in the USA. We have a right to face our accuser.

I think this issue has been answered time and time again on this site - there is a whole section with a downloadable file to let people know where the red light camera is, and probably DOZENs of older threads about this issue.

Pretty much everyone on this site will have the same opinion about them, and you can easily see why we do by reading the past threads.

It really is just revenue maker for the city, and that's all.

I assume your answer is ...

I assume your answer to my question of why you object to safety cameras is that "cameras are revenue makers".

What is wrong with that if the people receiving tickets broke the law? When an officer gives a ticket, is he/she not a "revenue maker" at that point in time?

My take on the camera issue

My take on the camera issue is that when Arizona decided to install the cameras...... while their motivaation was purely for the revenue....I agreed with the law...they just did the right thing.....for the wrong reason.
