Since I never seem to get a ticket

My friend emailed me a link to his violation. 3 jgps as in the early days, then a video.

How can this be disputed? It clearly has his vehicle behind the line with the red light in the image, then him proceeding through. The video is gravy.

His attitude was you do the crime, you pay the fine.

It's very curious why so many don't agree with that statement. ???

DC Ticket Programs Mock Traffic Safety Concerns

Still think that red light cameras and speed cameras (and stop sign cameras and crosswalk cameras and box cameras) are on the Up and Up? It's all about saf---....money money money.

"The District often issues speeding tickets without conclusive identification of the violating vehicle” through its speed cameras....

How about Radar / VASCAR trap locations?

Hi, does the database have any POIs where police sit consistently with radar guns or the white painted lines for VASCAR?
Thanks,
Scott

some food for thought

In an article published by Fox News, the intriguing comment is made: "When radar and camera systems are concealed, the public begins to mistrust government and the true aim of using the technology." which mirrors the comments of both proponents and opponents of cameras.

San Diego Red Light Cameras Taken Down

I should have posted this last year but better late than never. Cameras in other parts of San Diego County may still be active but within the City, they have been removed.

I do know that they are also down in neighboring El Cajon.

Does anyone know if the Baltimore cameras have been added back into the camera files. I know they were removed because Baltimore stopped the program for awhile but even if turned off I still need them in there. Thanks..

Short Yellows in Chicago

http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/44/4486.asp#source

I guess my question is who controls the timing of yellows.

As I read this article, the ticket from Zerox itself has on it "2.9 [seconds]" which would be below the standard of a minimum of 3 seconds.

This also seems to imply that Chicago gives NO grace period.

Stop on Red Week

http://watchdog.org/163422/traffic-camera-crashes/

"NMA’s Bowman agrees that encouraging drivers to stop at red lights “is a worthy goal and has important safety benefits.”

“But pushing red-light cameras as a way to do it is not in anyone’s best interest, except for those who benefit from the ticket revenue produced by those cameras.”

More speed camera nonsense

An article in today’s Baltimore Sun states that in Howard County (Maryland), as many as 600% of all cars going through an intersection are speeding. At least according to data provided to the county by Xerox.

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?
