Pretty cool use of the data

Pretty cool use of the data to create a map. The cameras are in tight clusters separated by vast distances.

Good catch Panache &

What about the stop sign cameras?

JM and Angela, are the stop sign cameras incorporated into the RLC POI?

Leave it to the capital of the free world

To have the most traffic, speed and the latest innovation, stop sign cameras. No violations of due process going on in DC.....

Great Job Jonathan & Angela

You are to be commended for your hard work & dedication.
I didn't realize you did so much more then rely on members input.

As for Washington DC having the most cameras, I'm wondering if any politicians receiving a violation actually pay the fine, my inclination is they have their aids pick up the phone and have it crushed.

Job

well done. Hip hip.

Wow great to see it

Wow great to see it graphically. Should I expect to see every city dotted in the future?

Thanks!

We were happy they contacted us for the interview.
The Phoenix part wasn't correct, but otherwise we thought it was a fun piece that highlighted some of the nuances in the world of enforcement cameras.

Wow, this was a great article

Nice.
Thanks for all your hard work.

Really cool!

It is great to see POI Factory get well deserved publicity. I participate in several forums for GPS enthusiasts, and it is obvious that most of them are in decline as smart phone apps take over the GPS world. But thanks to the great work of JM and Globe Turtle, POI Factory has remained relevant and as popular as ever. The camera data base is obviously a critical part of the site's continued success, but I thnk it is more than that. It is such a well managed forum with the correct balance of useful information and social networking friendship. Congratulations to JM and Globe Turtle for making POI Factory the success that it is.

Congratulations on catching the attention of someone outside this site's membership!

But more than that, good job keeping POI Factory accurate and relevant for all these years.

Not Accurate

This map of camera locations isn't accurate. I know of two speed cameras on my commute route that show on the map, but they were removed years ago.

There could be some omissions. If I see any change or new addition of red light cameras, I always report it to Angela to keep this list as accurate as possible.

It is of immense value to me when driving in unknown cities or areas in US and Canada.

If you are positive the two camera locations were removed please use the CONTACT tab at the top right of the page and give the locations so they can be removed from the list. It benefits all to keep the list as accurate as possible. Thanks for advising there are errors.

The only way for it to remain accurate if to send in any changes you observe. I have sent in removals and they were changed in the very next RLC post.

Contribution is what makes POI great.

New York City

Interesting that according to that article, you can't get a list out of the NYC Dept. of Transportation of the intersections with red light cameras in that city. Media and citizens there should keep filing Freedom of Information Act requests to pester them into releasing it.

"Phoenix stood out to her as a place where the traffic lights stay put"

Traffic lights do usually stay put, it is the cameras that get moved around!

And they have been doing it

And they have been doing it since day one when this site went online and done and excellent job. Thanks for all your hard work keeping this POI updated
