In the Aug.31,2011 editon of the Orange County Register, the Assembly voted 50-3 to require that red-light cameras be usesd for public safety and not to generate revenue from traffic fines.
Article in the National Review about Red Light Cameras.
...Mayor Bloomberg contended that there is an economic advantage to enforcement cameras, as they are cheaper than employing more people. This is undoubtedly true. But leaving aside cameras’ lack of capacity for common sense and discretion, there is a real cost to reliance on technology.
I don't think anyone posted this link yet, I'm not trying to change opinions or even form them. Since Mayor Bloomberg had indicated he wants lights at all intersection he might want to reconsider and put police officers at them instead, if he has all the violators cited motorist, pedestrians, and bicyclist, he might actually get a balanced budget for NYC.
Saw a postal vehicle blow an intersection today. Thinking that it has no plates anyway or the union protects them.

Dayton OH: Cameras Catch 3,000 Dayton Speeders In 17 Days
At $85 a ticket, the speed cameras could generate a lot of money for the city of Dayton but city officials stress that this is not the reason why they were installed.
To paraphrase an old carpet salesman, "We don't care about making money, we just love to slow down speeders..."
Interesting turn of events in Washington...
The city of Springfield, Ohio, says 27% of their red light camera tickets go unpaid.
Companies that operate red light cameras and speed cameras are facing increasing opposition across the country. In response, the firms have adopted a strategy of suing cities that have second thoughts about continuing to use cameras in their community.
I guess Des Moines making too much money on cameras a new one is at 56th & polk blvd eastbound on I-235....
The latest POI speed camera file seems to be missing two speed cameras that I frequently pass.
New Hampshire Avenue and Jackson Road - in front of a middle school.
And another one on New Hampshire Avenue about a mile north of the Maryland - Washington DC border.
My GPS is no longer warning me about these, and I can not find them in the POI factory csv file.
PG County, MD was given permission in 2009 to install speed cameras, however this not implemented by the previous County Executive. The current County Executive has resurrected the idea. Details are here:

College Park has added a third mobile speed camera along US1 (Baltimore Ave). This one is Northbound between Guilford Rd and Calvert St (N38.97795 W76.93782). Set to ticket at 12mph above the 30mph speed limit. Although this is a mobile speed camera, College Park rairly moves them.
N39 06.502 W76 51.250
Speed Camera, 7th Street
I sent the one on La Cholla south of Curtis in to Miss POI several weeks ago, dose not show on this weeks update. Has some got the one on the eastside yet? I believe they went active last week, they had them set to take pics but not ticket yet.
The one on La Cholla should be a money maker, a bar a few 100" away and walmart in the other direction, lol
The city of Coral Springs is installing red light cameras all over the place, alot of them are along University drive. I will post specific intersections later on. In the meantime, I am waiting to get my PhotoBlocker spray from Amazon.
