Red Light & Speed Cameras
"Motorists from 65 Florida cities and counties want their money back after paying red light camera tickets that a state appeals court deemed illegal two years ago.
Last week, a federal appeals court said not so fast.
Just check out this article in a newspaper from the UK.
TAMPA — Bucking a trend that's swept up several other Tampa Bay area cities, the Tampa City Council voted 4-to-3 Thursday to keep the city's red-light camera program for two more years.
Manatee County began its month-long warning period for its 10th red-light camera Tuesday.
The camera, which is for southbound traffic at 53rd Avenue and U.S. 41, will begin taking photos of red light runners after the warning period is over on Sept. 29, according to a news release.
"On Wednesday, the City Council is expected to vote on whether to renew a contract that has just expired for the cameras."
Is different than the findings of this report. In St. Petersburg the crash rate was statistically unchanged after removal of the RLCs.
"Red-light cameras are widely hated, but a new study says getting rid of them can have fatal consequences.
"Notice July 25, 2016 - An additional Automated Speed Camera will be Online Soon.

New Bill Works To Install Speed Cameras On Philly’s Deadliest Road

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia city officials are now trying get speed cameras installed along Roosevelt Boulevard. The road has long been considered one of the deadliest stretches in Philadelphia.
TAMPA — The future of red light camera programs could soon be in the hands of the Florida Supreme Court.
That ruling contradicts one made by the 4th District Court of Appeal in 2014 where a three-judge panel ruled that the City of Hollywood's camera program illegally delegated law enforcement functions including the determination of a citation and the issuance of a ticket by a third party.
Both eastbound and westbound red lights at the intersections of Blue Star Highway at E. Brickyard Road and Blue Star Highway at Commerce Blvd will feature the cameras.
Tamarac's program that relies on cameras to catch red-light runners may get a four-year extension — keeping the city among few towns in South Florida that still use the devices.
The legality of red-light-camera programs has been contested in courts, leading other cities to discontinue them.
Yesterday I was proceeding up to a RLC intersection on my commute. I know from feel whether I can make it or not, based upon where I come to a complete stop when the light turns red.
I would have never thought of this, and I saw it in action yesterday.
In Prince George's County, Maryland almost all the speed cameras are movable. Probably at least 90% of them. However over many years I have only seen one speed camera moved - and it was only moved around 100 feet.
For years I drive past a special ed school - Frances Fuchs, which has speed cameras.
Is there a change log available to see for the speed and red light cameras? Also are mobile speed camera locations available? I did get a citation with a laser speed cam in toledo. It was a cycle cop under a bridge in Toledo (I75NB under the Indiana Blvd overpass). Seen them their quite a bit but did not realize till now that he actually was "taking pictures" (trucker talk)
NEW PORT RICHEY — In a vote that fell far short of a ringing endorsement, the New Port Richey City Council has opted to keep the city's red-light camera program alive on U.S. 19 for another year.

I am new to POI's and downloading them to my Rand McNally. Can someone please help me with understanding in very simple terms where I find the POI to allert me to Red Light cameras to download to my GPS? One page I landed on it said something about needing a subscription -- is this true? -- why?
Also, where is the POI for low clearance and RRx's for both Canada and USA with sound alert?
Some people have deep, deep pockets.
Check out the statistics on repeat offenders in Maryland!
It will be interesting to see how his trial goes!
I was using Garmin POI Loader to install POI file to my GPS unit.
When installing the speed camera file, the POI Loader offers two alert options:
A) Alert when speed is greater than the Alert Speed (default is 0)
B) Alert whenever you get close to a point (default is 1969 ft)
My question is:
If I chose option A, how early I'll get the alert?
