Ticket cameras

 

Directional?

Are the red light and speed camera files directional like in WAZE? Also why are there seperate files for red light cameras and speed cameras? Why not just combine the two?

GPS compatability

How do I know if my model GPS is compatible with POI download files

New speed cameras help drivers avoid tickets

Tampa joins St. Pete voting Red Light Cameras out.

Tampa city council votes 4 to 3 to remove RLC from city limits, reason cited was revenues generated is going to city’s general fund and not traffic safety.

The city netted about $1.6 million in revenue last fiscal year.

There are 51 cameras working at 21 intersections in the city limits.

With the weasel we have as mayor and the rubber stamp police chief I'll believe it when I see it.

ST. PETERSBURG — The clock is ticking on the city’s red-light camera program.

After an two-hour emotional debate, the city council voted 6-2 to wind down the controversial red-light camera program once fines no longer cover the cost of the program or by Sept. 30, whichever is sooner.

Full story here:

license plate covers

There are places which sell a cover for your license plate. Allegedly it blocks your plate from being read by camera.

I'm assuming it no longer works (assuming it ever did). Does anyone have any definitive information?

New Speed Cameras in NYC

Just heard on NY news that a politician finally came up with a constructive idea concerning red light cameras. He want to have an alert sign to warn of an approaching red light camera. His thinking is that the idea is not to just collect revenue, but to actually discourage drivers from going thru red lights.

I'm not really lost.... just temporarily misplaced!

Another blow for Red light camera.

When the complainant filed a suit the charge was dismissed therefore they don't have a case according to St. Louis city official. If you complaint then the city will drop the charge. If you pay the ticket, you will be call an idiot.

Speed Cameras in Florida

I have lived in Florida my entire and have been familiar with red light cameras for some time. I was not aware, however, that there are speed cameras. Yesterday, while driving through Apopka, FL, my trust Garmin and POI red light and speed camera POIs alerted me to several speed cameras.

Include Zip Codes in RLC POI File?

I do not know if this would be a headache/nightmare for POI maintenance or not, so please forgive me if it would be.

Can a zip code field/column be added to the RLC POI file? The reason I ask is to make it easier to search the file geographically.

Cleveland traffic camera system unconstitutional, appellate court rules

Any thoughts from a lawyer ? Will it stick? Will the city owe refunds to those that paid a ticket by the unconstitutional flawed law, if the Ohio Supreme Court also finds them unconstitutional.
