Red Light & Speed Cameras
Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed into law that cameras at red lights are no longer allowed. Governor Abbott signed House Bill 1631 BANNING Red Light Cameras in the state of Texas.
New law prohibits cameras in Texas. Will take effect at the end of current camera contracts. It is already being reported cities are rushing to extend current contracts.
NYC just announced 2000 speed cameras are scheduled to be installed! 40 cameras per month around schools.
I read were you can get free access to the Red light Ticket cameras.
"You can gain access to download this file by participating on the site and earning active user status"
My question is what do you need to do to earn active user status?
Please don't run red lights 'cause this is what happens!
Recorded on our dashcam while waiting for the light to change.
I am finding that POI is working out better than cyclops.
There were a few valid alerts from POI, where Cyclops didn't even go off.
That really made me question Cyclops, when there are still alerts for NJ, who did away with rlcs 4 years ago.
again, I'm not a proponent of them, and am a proponent of rlcs.
I do agree there is a problem on Roosevelt Ave.
Senate bill 172 passed the house & senate. It's now on the way to the governors desk who has indicated he will sign it.
It would seem to me that maintaining an accurate database is very difficult.
Yesterday, we were passing through NJ, and being alerted at all the old intersections where NJ had rlcs. They did away with them years ago.
Back in July, I purchased the Cyclops figuring we're going to be spending time in Toronto, let's be extra careful and do the belt and suspenders method of awareness.
Yesterday, I thought about it again, as I passed through the cam at 34th and Grays Ferry in Phila., making a left turn.
Two cars ahead of me ran 3 consecutive lights heading west. That would be 35th, S Harmony, and Grove. This happens every day, day in, day out. But very few people run 34th and Grays Ferry.
Here's yet another study, this time by Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, that shows that red light cameras don't make intersections safer. It's a short but interesting read.
Everyone who's surprised raise your hand.
I have in 2002, and I didn't even know they existed.
My hunch is the % on this forum is < .01
I have always wanted to find a case where someone was wrongfully ticketed, other than the obvious, where a stationary vehicle got a ticket, or 100% of people got a ticket, i.e. malfunction. Never have seen one and I've been here a long time...still curious
Looks like the people certifying that a "violation occurred" don't even look at the pictures, they just send out the violations. Maybe if it happened only once I'd be forgiving, but not for more than ten times.
I've been playing around with the latest version of the red light camera POI file, when out of nowhere, an idea hit
As I've always been annoyed to hear the beeps of an upcoming camera and then find out the camera is pointing in another direction, I thought why not change the CSV file to list the street name and direction in the description?
This is a little late. On March 22, 2018, the Northwest Herald published an article about the Village of Lakemoor.
Recently purchased a Garmin DriveSmart 61, a very nice and fast model. It also supports red light and speed cameras. Once I checked more into this, found out I this is a subscription feature from Cyclops ($24.99/year) - see above link.
NYC has been using bus lane cameras. Have these been integrated with the red light and speed cameras? Here are the locations of the bus lane cameras:
Here is some more information from NYC Website:
A Speed Cam case in Ohio may go to the U.S. Supreme Court. A Federal Court has ruled that the town of New Miami in Ohio must return more than $3 million in automated speeding tickets. This could bankrupt the town!
Seems that the court saw the cameras as just a money making scheme. This is exactly what many people believe.
