Redlight cameras on RT 1 - NJ

 

Anyone know if the red light cameras all along RT 1 from edison, NJ to trenton are being added to the database? Took a special trip down there today.. lots of cameras all over.

nevermind.. looks like i'm

nevermind.. looks like i'm mistaken. According to this page: http://www.poi-factory.com/node/6698 the cameras i saw were actually the ones at the bottom.

Must be some red light cameras

Aside from the other cameras you described, I can't believe there aren't some red light cameras in that stretch of RT 1. There are many different jurisdictions in the area. Some will have cameras and not others.

Why not load the red light camera file before you drive that road again. Then when you get an alert, see what the camera looks like. With that knowledge maybe you can spot some others.

Well, actually NJ law does

Well, actually NJ law does not allow for red light cameras to be used to issue tickets, thus my surprised look when I found cameras mounted on traffic lights tody, erroneously thinking they were red light cameras. I do think they did recently pass a law to trial red light cameras at a few intersections where running red lights and accidents are of high incidence. But as I recall, in order for a municipality to be granted the right to use a red light camera at a specific intersection, it must first show that it has tried various things spelled out in the law to curb red light running without being successful. And then it has to seek permission from the NJ transportation agency or something. I think the trials are mostly taking place at a few intersections in Newark. That's it. Anyways, at least for the time being, the state is not allowing widespread use of red light cameras.

What is not a red light camera

A camera mounted on the arm supporting the traffic signal, looking toward the front of the car, is not a red light camera.

The red light cameras in my area have a round metal pole on the right side of the road about 60 feet before the intersection. The cameras look toward the back of the car. From the top, there is a round light that operates like a strobe, then a smaller camera, then a bigger camera. At street level there is a box about 2 feet square.

Added

Just wondering if the CA stop sign cameras have been added to the database and does the warning voice say stop sign camera ahead? I figure the CA stop sign trend will be headed to a town near you as soon as the politicians figure out there is another way to take money from the taxpayer.

The reason the Nassau County NY camera was described is because it doesn't look like any of the photos in the link.

Also, just 30 minutes ago I saw Suffolk County NY cameras for the first time. They are completely different and also aren't in the link. I am going to take pictures and submit them.
