Ticket cameras

 

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.

Nassau offers deal for traffic scofflaws

Nassau County is offering parking and red-light camera scofflaws a deal in which they can avoid a new boot and tow program if they agree to pay some of their tickets and work out a payment plan for the rest, county officials said after the first five days of the program.

Vandalised Gatsos

I knew there was something about the Brits that was near and dear to my sense dislike of intrusive government.

Signal Time Shortening in Missouri

A paper presented at the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) annual meeting two years ago offered a justification for shortening the duration of yellow warning times at intersections prior to the installation of red light cameras. Until then, the relation between signal-time shortening and automated enforcement has been anecdotal. Springfield, Missouri's former traffic engineer, Earl E.

Got my first RLC ticket

Dang - I came to a "near" stop making a right hand turn. You know, where the motion of the car settles but you know you didn't come to a 100% stop (maybe 1/2 mph). Its barely noticeable at all on the video but it was easier to just pay than take a day off to argue the fact that I was almost stopped. $75 I'll never see again - stinks but such is life.

More cameras for the province of Quebec

Well, they're going to deploy another 29 cameras around the province because "the 15 devices already in place in the province have been successful in getting drivers to slow down."

Which is a truly interesting statement, considering that six of the existing 15 cameras are red light, rather than speed cameras.

Speed and Red Light Cameras POI's

For over four years I've been downloading the Rest Areas, Red Light Cameras, and Speed Cameras POI's without a problem. Today, the download site for the Red Light and Speed cameras POI's is asking for a membership fee ($5/month or $20/year). Is this new at the Factory or am I missing something? Like I said, I've been a contributing member for over four years.
