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?
Reported in today's Mercury News
This is not about ticket cameras. Sorry, this was the most appropriate forum for posting this.
The court of appeals just published a ruling that you cannot look at maps on your phone while driving. Not sure if that goes for another electronic mapping device like a GPS unit, but this is disturbing.
Apparently this guy lost in court and appealed on his own without legal help and now this is a published case, which is caselaw.
Officials in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana are moving forward on plans to refund $4.7 million in red light camera tickets. Council Chairman Chris L. Roberts put forward the motion on March 13 to put an end to "a long chapter of questionable dealings" with Redflex, the Australian company that issued the tickets.
For those who want police officers to issue tickets for speeding will get their wish in Polk County Iowa very soon.
I was wondering if this is a red light camera, can anyone tell me what it is?
Florida City. Dixie Highway. I was stopped at a light when an ambulance approached with siren. All lanes were blocked. I decided to proceed against the light when the cross traffic stopped. The next light had a RLC. I don't know what I would have done there.
Owners of vehicles registered in California could have their license suspended for red light running violations, even if they never get behind the wheel of their cars.
The sudden drop in camera tickets occurred two years ago after traffic engineers, without telling police, added one second to yellow light times at nearly every camera-enforced intersection -- from four seconds to five seconds.
It seems to me that the moderator would be a perfect employee for a authoritarian nanny state government. Closing the "Looks reasonable to me" thread accomplishes nothing.
The day will come when "We the people" are going to decide that we have had enough of the power grabbing scum that seem to keep getting elected and we return to a country of self-reliant freedom loving citizens.
here is a link to a bill in the Florida legislature.
An Ohio Judge has issued an injunction barring the enforcement of speed-cam tickets.
It seems that shortened yellows is again in the news. I was wondering when there would be an issue with cameras here.
EDIT: I changed the heading to read "a shorter yellow" vs a "shortened yellow". Which as per the article it really is.
Redflex Traffic Systems is losing another customer. On Tuesday, Hayward, California's city council voted 6-1 to end the use of red light cameras at the earliest possible opportunity, joining thirty-four other California cities that have decided to abandon automated ticketing.
There are 4 new red light camera locations in Opelika, AL. Basic info is in the news article linked below. Next time I am in the area of the cameras, I will update as to specific direction(s) the cameras are aimed.
