Ticket cameras

 

Just wondering

Lost night i was riding my motorcycle. The red light camera warning was alerting me as supposed to.But...the red light cam alert sign (in the pop up) is exactly the same color light gray as the street names. Blends in with the background. Just wondering if the grey letters could be changed to red inside the warning sign , so would be more noticeable?

When a Yellow Light is Too Long

Short yellows are a serious problem. In 2001, the Office of the US House Majority Leader issued a report, "The Red Light Running Crisis: Is it Intentional?" explaining in detail the changes the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) made to the commonly used yellow timing formula between 1976 and 1999...

coworker had speed cam ticket in hand

My conclusion is that I did not get one in DC (I've lost track of how many weeks it's been). Now we'll never know what their threshold is, I was doing 6 over and that's what I found online supposedly triggers the cam. MD is 11, and they publically state it.

Federal Court Takes on Photo Enforcement Hearsay Issue

California courts are split on the issue of whether US Supreme Court precedent invalidates evidence typically provided by red light cameras. The Court of Appeal, number-two in state's the judicial hierarchy, issued a pair of rulings within a few weeks coming to contradictory conclusions on this question (view case).

Sensitive Red Light Camera

I was commuting to work this morning and was stopped at an RLC monitored intersection at NY-109 and New Highway in Lindenhurst, NY. Suddenly I saw a bright flash so I looked around and did not see any cars moving or in the intersection. Then I noticed there was a bicyclist crossing against the red light and he drove over the sensor.

Been stressing quite a bit for the last few days, and thought I'd see what some of you guys think.

Question on Chicagoland Speed & Redlight cameras

With the Upcoming additions to Chicagoland, I'm interested in how you folks get info on whereabouts of new locations....

I forwarded one to you on a Redlight in Skokie, and I'll bet you learn about them this way, but, with the large quantities of new systems about to be released.... Do they Publish the where-abouts, or ????

Just being nosy, since they will be in my immediate vicinity......

Just Wondering

While I was out spending my money I had earned for working the last 45 + years and am now receiving I saw a policeman stop a fast car on the freeway just past the speed cameras. This made me think of several consequences.

You Can Run But You Can't Hide

Forget RLC and speed cameras, in case you haven’t noticed the RFID readers are popping up all over town at least here in the Tampa area mounted on utility poles and interstate roads in south Florida, soon if not already they may know where you are, direction of travel and how fast you are going, check it out conspiracy theorist.

Been 5 weeks

Since I thought I got a speed cam ticket in DC, am I out of the woods yet? I saw someone from NC got a DC ticket in his mailbox 3 days later, and in NYC a person got it 9 days later in the mail, and in CA the law says 15 days. Am I safe if it's been 5 weeks?

imho I learned my lesson, 25 means 25, not 31, 32, 33. I probably was able to slow down to under 31 I guess.
