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.
I downloaded a trial of Cyclops a few weeks ago just to see how it works with the Red Light Camera alerts. It warns with a beep, and a red bar with the impending distance to the camera. I was wondering what type of alert the POI file offers. Is it similar???
"If you fight a red-light ticket under Florida's new rules, be prepared to pay more.
Although changes in state law were designed partly to make it easier to challenge a ticket issued because of a red-light camera, the new rules also allow local governments to tack on costs for hearing an appeal: up to $250 per case.
I just saw the first 2 the next round of 50 that NYS has approved in Nassau County.
I submitted them for review.
Does anyone know where to get the complete official list from the county?
FYI, I understand Suffolk county was also approved for more cameras.
Nine new red light cameras go live in Lakeland, Florida on Sunday. There will be 30 day grace period before fines are issued.
Here are the new locations:
1) Eastbound Memorial Boulevard at Massachusetts Avenue.
2) Westbound Memorial Boulevard at Massachusetts Avenue.
3) Northbound Harden Boulevard at Beacon Road.
A veteran police officer is suing the Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department after he was punished for blowing the whistle on corruption in the speed camera unit. Sergeant Mark Robinson has spent 23 years on the force, with five years of experience working on the automated traffic enforcement unit.
Linden NJ is really pushing tickets out these days. Styles and Rout 1&9 I know several people who receintly received tickets for $140
I've just seen a news report this Tues. 8/27/ 13 that the first 20 speed cameras will be installed starting Sept. 9th, in NY around the boroughs specifically around school locations. The fine will be $50.00
I just notice that difference between Garmin Cyclops and our redlight/speed camera subscription. Check out this topic below.
Embattled red light camera vendor Redflex Traffic Systems has lost another contract. The Escondido, California city council voted unanimously Wednesday to allow the Australian company's right to issue near $500 tickets expire on December 12, and ticketing will cease even sooner.
I found this article interesting. Not just that they indicate 132 new cameras are being installed, but the variety of new photo enforcement cameras in the DC area. To the best of my current knowledge, with 32 planned, they will have the lead in stop sign cameras.
