Ticket cameras

 

experience in Canada

After driving for a week in Toronto, I almost wonder why rlc's is even a discussion? There were a bunch of rlc's in Toronto and Scarborough, but even in places they were absent, people attempted to stop on yellow (countdown timers) and they came to complete stops at stop signs, and yielded to pedestrians.

Why is it so different there?

RLC's

I appreciate the effort someone or some people are putting in to keep the RLC's updated.

Where I live, a few years ago they moved the cameras around but left the box that housed it in place. So you never knew if there was one or not. Now they seem to put a sign up warning you of a RED LIGHT enforcement camera.

People who got caught before this still must pay the fines.
The police will use radar to ,monitor the road.

Speed camera fines could become a thing of the past if Hyundai has its way.

Disclosing locations of red light cameras?

Hello all,

So I was trolling around sites just trying to find out if the RLC locations were being disclosed by official agencies, just because...

So I came across this recent press release from NY's AAA

http://www.ny.aaa.com/AAA-Pressroom/Press-Releases/AAA-Red-L...

Suffolk County, NY relocating RLC and adding 50 new

Suffolk County, located on Long Island, New York is in the process of moving many of its RLC's to new locations. Although county leaders claim it is because they have effectively controlled traffic at the prior locations, the real reason is that revenue ($80 per ticket) is drying up as motorists learn the locations.

should dash cams be required on all cars?

The technology is readily available, and backup cams will be required.

Wouldn't a dash cam video clearly show if you ran a light or didn't? So if you plead not guilty, it's required that you provide the video, or you are automatically guilty. To the contrary, you didn't run the light, you provide the video, and you are given a mandatory $50 gift card to Starbucks.

Are Redlight Cameras declining in number or increasing?

I wonder if anyone has kept track of the number of redlight camera locations as an indicator if they are still increasing in number or if they are decreasing.

I have seen numerous stories lately where cities that had installed them are removing them due to losing money ion them

Baltimore Speed Cameras yet again

Even though Baltimore stopped using speed cameras last year because of pervasive problems they are still in the news. (Unfortunately, to return again soon.) Seems the city paid for two independent secret audits. The first became public in January and the second this week. Seems that the overall system error rate was around 5.5%.

Use of multiple red light camera files ???

I am currently using Trapster RLC files in my Nuvi 50LM.

I will shortly be downloading a copy of the Factory RLC file.

Are there any suggestions or recommendations relating to using these files singly or in combination ?

Would using both sets of files at the same time give me better RLC coverage ? Any problems when both files try to report the same location at the same time?
