Australia: State Caught Exploiting Short Yellow Signal Times

A court challenge forced officials in Victoria, Australia to admit last week that red light cameras at eight intersections have been extremely productive because the yellow warning times were illegally short. The yellows fell short anywhere between 0.5 and 1.5 seconds with the incorrect timing in place, in one instance, for seven-and-a-half years.

School Zone Cameras

Noticed in a couple of cities around here that there are speed cameras setup in front of various schools. In general there is a "normal" speed limit when school is not in session and then a specific speed during school hours. There are speed cameras mounted at both ends of the zone. There is usually a yellow flashing light with a sign warning of the "school zone speed".

speed cameras in Montgomery county Md

Seems like Monkey county has a finite set of speed cameras that they are constantly shuffling around the county. I've seen these devices installed one week at one place then removed and put somewhere else.

For the record, these devices are avout 2 feet square and about 3 1/2 feet tall, usually silver sometimes green.

What gives? it certainly makes the speed camera files hectic.
