You number 547 cameras in the NY Metro area. Does anyone know if they are all real and functioning ?
Or are some of them fake? Or disconnected, but left in place just to intimidate us???
Accidents increased at the intersections where red light cameras were installed in Newport News, Virginia. An analysis of six years' worth of collision data by the National Motorists Association (NMA) confirmed that use of photo enforcement failed to deliver on the promise of improved safety in the town of 180,000.
Now it's the Ohio Senate's turn:
Sure hope they do it.
I saw on the news this morning that the State of Ohio is conducting hearings on making the use of red light cameras and speed cameras illegal in the State of Ohio. It seems that common sense is starting to prevail here in the state. See the link below for more information. http://www.legislature.state.oh.us/bills.cfm?ID=130_HB_69
The city of Tampa is adding a red light camera at the intersection of Fowler Avenue and 30 Street. This brings the total number of cameras in the area to 48.
Globe Turtle already added these 2 new red-light cameras in Norfolk, VA to the file.
They are going active sometime in November 2013.
Thanks for the quick work Angela.
What happened to the poi download of the bell warning and flashing band for redlight and speed cameras?
I have a question having recently joined POI Factory.
I downloaded the trial version of red light camera alerts from Garmin for my Nuvi2495. It works great.
Are the files already under Red Light cameras also include locations in Canada as well? Or is that something we can start contributing?
The other day, I came across an RLC intersection. As I approach, the pedestrian signal turned and started counting down...5,4,3,2,1. I slowed down and stopped at the intersection. The light stayed GREEN, the pedestrian signal turned to "don't walk". After a slight wait, I continued on driving across the intersection. Luckily I was alone and no other cars were behind me.
Simply amazing admission by the STL Police Chief:
- Speed cameras exist to reaise money
- Placed where speed limits set atrifically low to entice you to speed.
Evidently okay to screw and violate the rights of those who can afford it. How about don't screw anyone!
We all know that red light cameras are not exclusively for reducing accidents, the cameras provide a huge inflow of money.
Reportedly installed somewhere along the 20-mile elevated stretch of I-10 that crosses the Atchafalaya River Basin between Lafayette and Baton Rouge, LA, a motion detector triggers the gun, which sends a photo of any offending vehicle to a waiting law enforcement vehicle about a mile ahead.
Hmmmm, High Schoolers speaking out, perhaps??
To Angela (et al) -
I know the info below is NOT in the standard full-format for new POI listings (e.g. Lat/Long coordinates, speed limits, etc). However, I thought I would all least post this to help get this addition started.
Below is the current (as of 9/12/2013) listing of both Red Light -and- Speed Cameras in Baltimore COUNTY.
Over the next few months, District officials plan to more than double the number of traffic enforcement cameras on city streets — adding 132 units to their army of electronic eyes.
Hi, I was wondering is there any indication in either the red light or speed camera POI files to tell which street the camera is on if it is at an intersection or give some sort of indication of direction of the street?
Get a load of this headline and story.

After spending the last few years tinkering with Florida's red light camera law to make the system more fair, state Sen. Jeff Brandes is giving up and calling for its abolishment.
