Signal Time Shortening in Missouri

A paper presented at the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) annual meeting two years ago offered a justification for shortening the duration of yellow warning times at intersections prior to the installation of red light cameras. Until then, the relation between signal-time shortening and automated enforcement has been anecdotal. Springfield, Missouri's former traffic engineer, Earl E.

Got my first RLC ticket

Dang - I came to a "near" stop making a right hand turn. You know, where the motion of the car settles but you know you didn't come to a 100% stop (maybe 1/2 mph). Its barely noticeable at all on the video but it was easier to just pay than take a day off to argue the fact that I was almost stopped. $75 I'll never see again - stinks but such is life.

Sarasota, Fl. Redlight Cameras and POI File, Much Thanks!!

More cameras for the province of Quebec

Well, they're going to deploy another 29 cameras around the province because "the 15 devices already in place in the province have been successful in getting drivers to slow down."

Which is a truly interesting statement, considering that six of the existing 15 cameras are red light, rather than speed cameras.

Speed and Red Light Cameras POI's

For over four years I've been downloading the Rest Areas, Red Light Cameras, and Speed Cameras POI's without a problem. Today, the download site for the Red Light and Speed cameras POI's is asking for a membership fee ($5/month or $20/year). Is this new at the Factory or am I missing something? Like I said, I've been a contributing member for over four years.

Newport News tries to justify RLCs

The Daily Press published an article today that tries to justify RLCs.

Granted, these are really bad intersections, but What is really interesting is how much money Redflex is getting.

How accurate Lat/Long for reporting a speed camera?

Gaithersburg MD has installed several new speed trap cameras, not at intersections.

Fortunately I got photo'd by them while they were testing their locations and accuracy.

They're not at interesections, so I can't safely stop to record the lat/long. As we drove by at 20 mph I did a Save this location.

Is that accurate enough for reporting?

The newest version of traffic enforcement cameras debut in France.
