Baltimore Speed Camera System

The Baltimore City speed camera ticket alleged that the four-door Mazda wagon was going 38 miles per hour in a 25-mph zone — and that owner Daniel Doty owed $40 for the infraction.

But the Mazda wasn't speeding.

It wasn't even moving.

Florida Law

When I've driven in Orlando, I often come to intersections where there's a sign stating that there's a red light camera. I've also noticed similar signs in other locations.

However, I've noticed a few places in Florida that the POI file claims have red light cameras that don't have a sign.

Guidelines for Timing Yellow and All-Red Intervals

False alerts in El Paso, TEXAS

I was in El Paso today -- no, waitaminnit, what time is it? Oh geez, it's 6:30 in the morning!

I was in El Paso yesterday, and got several red light camera warnings, but every time I got to the intersection, there was NO red light camera there, there were only the small cameras used to make the lights change, like the old magnetic loops used to do.
