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.
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.
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.
A bill was passed and signed by the governor yesterday allowing red light cameras in municipalities with a population of more than 20,000. Until now only Philly was allowed.
A copy of the new bill can be read here:
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.
"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.
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)?
The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) yesterday ordered a halt to red light camera ticketing in 21 cities. The agency became concerned drivers are being shortchanged and the law violated after learning that 63 of 85 photo ticketing intersections failed to meet legal requirements for yellow signal timing.
Just got my android phone and am wondering if I can get red light and speed cameras installed on it. Free ones would be nice, but any recommendations out there.

Illinois will begin using photo radar in freeway work zones starting in July.
Beginning in July the State of Illinois will use speed cameras in areas designated as 'Work Zones' on major freeways.
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.
In Tennessee, a ticket cannot be issued if you turn right on red if the only evidence is from a traffic camera.
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
(It's telling that the District wouldn't give up the camera revenue information without a FOIA request.)
The District’s use of cameras to catch speeders and red-light runners reaped a record $55.1 million in 2011, and the cameras are likely to generate even more revenue this year, AAA said Thursday.

Judge Andrew Napolitano expressed an opinion today on Fox News Channel that the Red Light Cameras may be unconstitutional. Check out the video.
There may be hope yet
A New Jersey state senator wants to re-institute his state's ban on the use of red light cameras. On Thursday state Senator Michael J. Doherty (R-Washington Township) introduced legislation to that would force the eventual removal of the devices. Doherty also started an online petition to rally support his bill.
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.
I'm in Florida. The news came on with Red-Light cameras in Coco Beach.
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.
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,
