Ticket cameras

 

saw a RLC on overload

I wonder if it needs a new flash unit? A funeral procession went through the red light--must have seen at least 14 successive flashes times two. I bet there is some technicality that they don't have to pay. it's still dangerous, the perpendicular traffic may go with a green left arrow, and be unaware that the funeral is blowing the light.

Brooksville, Fl. Red Light Cameras

I was traveling through Brooksville on Sunday on the way back from scalloping in Crystal River and I came upon a red light camera intersection that had a warning sign and cameras already installed. This did not show up on my Garmin.

I believe the intersection was U.S. 41/South Broad Street and MLK Blvd/West Summit Road. I thought I saw another sign along that stretch, but I'm not certain.

RLC: Some work, some don't

Here's another "Good News", "Bad News" data point on RL cameras, from today's local newspaper:

Md. town to deactivate 2 of 3 red light cameras
WESTMINSTER (AP) — Westminster Police will deactivate two of the remaining three red-light cameras in the city, citing more crashes caused by rear-end collisions than by running red lights.

Nassau County, NY Red Light Cameras

Be extra careful when travelling near Nassau Blvd & Hempstead Turnpike in West Hempstead. The flash on the red light camera must be very nervous, because it pops photos faster than the paparazzi shooting Tom Cruise & Katy Holmes.

Clearwater, Florida RLC going online July 1, 2012

http://www.tampabay.com/news/transportation/roads/clearwater...

"Cameras will watch the eastbound and westbound lanes of Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard at Belcher Road, as well as the eastbound lanes of Chestnut Street at Fort Harrison Avenue. Those intersections saw the most crashes due to red-light running over the last three years, traffic officials say.

Can I modify a RLC file?

New to this..... Can I add a new rlc to the file I downloaded from POI, using the 'intersection' (or does it only accept lat/lon)?

Illinois will begin using photo radar in freeway work zones starting in July.

Anyone caught by these devices will be mailed a $375.00 ticket for the FIRST offense, but the SECOND offense will cost $ 1000.00 and comes with a 90-Day suspension.

RedFlix Traffic Systems, Inc. and American Traffic Solutions, Inc. tried to overturn the law in an attempt to issue more citations and thus their profits.

The judge turned down their request, noting that

Northern California Cities Dump Red Light Cameras

Two more California cities have given up on the use of red light cameras. On Tuesday, the city councils in Emeryville and Yuba City each voted to discontinue the use of automated ticketing machines, primarily out of a concern that the programs were failing to generate the expected amount of revenue. Officials were also upset that the programs have been tying up police resources.

RLC POI File Updates on Wednesdays: What Time?

I will be hitting the road in a couple of hours, and not have computer access for a few days. Do the RLC POI updates usually get posted at a specific time on Wednesdays? I can try to check for an update before leaving, but am pressed for time. Otherwise, I'll just not even try. Would just like to have the latest updates if possible. Thanks.

Red light camera in Champaign IL?

I am a new driver who just got a permit to practice on road.
Recently I kinda run through a red light because I could not come to a full stop when the yellow light turned to red.
I am worried about being caught by the camera but I am not sure whether the camera installed on my area is a red light camera.

I uploaded a pic of the camera on picasa and the link is below,
