The Chicago Tribune has reported before-and-after data for a highway red light camera (US 41 at Park Avenue) operated by Redflex in Highland Park, an upscale suburb of Chicago. The data strongly suggest /shockface/ that the mayor of Highland Park is being disingenuous when she suggests the reason for red-light camera enforcement at this location is public safety, not revenue.
Looks like a judge has found the village of Elmwood Place, a small community in the Cincinnati area, in contempt of court and has ordered the speed cameras confiscated.
Secrecy in public meetings is nothing new for Chicago....
"Chicago's red-light camera program would cost taxpayers more and would rely on radar guns under one of seven bid proposals quietly under review by City Hall in its effort to replace the scandal-scarred company that holds the current contract.
Note: Since this article was written last week, the New York Legislature voted successfully in the middle of the night Saturday to allow speed cameras in New York City...
How can I tell when red light and speed camera poi for Washington DC was last updated.
Thanks in advance.
There was a short article in the newspaper over the weekend that Baltimore City suspended all red light camera and speed camera enforcement in mid April. A newspaper investigation had earlier shown major problems with improper tickets. Then they had disputes with the vender. Ongoing review by the newspaper continued to show systemic problems.
California is the largest market for red light cameras in the country thanks to the fines set by the state running nearly $500 each. Municipalities that adopt the technology are quick to deny any possibility that financial considerations have anything to do with their decisions to monitor local intersections.
TAMPA BAY, Florida -- A subtle, but significant tweak to Florida's rules regarding traffic signals has allowed local cities and counties to shorten yellow light intervals, resulting in millions of dollars in additional red light camera fines.
I saw this interesting article about how ticket cameras are a major government revenue source.
Do we really want to live in a "Big Brother" society where the government constantly tracks all of our movements?
What do speed traps, parking tickets, toll roads, speed cameras and red light cameras all have in common? They are all major revenue sources for state and local governments.
Are showing up around town. At first I thought they were portable but noticed the are mounted on cement slabs.
I tried installing their locations on the latest list and it doesn't work. First I used the "where Am I" function on my GPS while sitting in my car right next to one. That's in Degrees.Minutes,Seconds. I then tried the web site
When a red light camera is removed , how cam we find out where it was located?

Hello all! I'm new to the forum and thought I would make my first posting. Does anyone know what POI file format is used in the Escort Defender database? I have an Escort 9500ix radar detector/gps unit with a Defender subscription and I'm curious if it is possible to manipulate the files. I'm interested in personalizing the information uploaded to my unit.
I found this article in my research today.
I understand this topic was brought up for discussion a couple of times a few years ago. I am curious if any action has been taken in any of your areas since.
I was leaving a plaza today, in the left turn only lane.
Guess what? There is a woman in a white Nissan, TO MY LEFT, with her right signal on.
She is on the wrong side of the traffic island, and had traveled the wrong direction for the length of the road leading to the plaza.
Ever since November when voters in Murrieta, California rejected red light cameras at the ballot box, American Traffic Solutions (ATS) has been on a campaign to turn them back on. The strategy has been two-fold: use the courts to overturn the public's decision, then convince the city council to reactivate the devices in the name of public safety.
Red light cameras must show that they are actually installed for public safety (on state roads) now in Arizona
This applies to new camera installations and previously installed cameras will be reviewed every three years.
Signed into law today
I was at an intersection today, and I counted 6 cars that blew the red light across my path.
I am all for a red light cam at this particular intersection, although I realize that 90% of the folks here are against it. What are the alternatives?
