In my area, Orlando, Fl, cameras may only be pointed in 1,2, or three directions. As I am new to POI's, I have a question: 1. Are the POI's direction sensitive? i.e. if you are going west but the camera is catching southbound traffic will the POI alert still go off at the intersection regardless of your direction of travel?
One of the complaints about cameras is the signals should be timed better. Well, here's some work being done in that area.
Business owner beats speeding tickets by turning town's traffic enforcement camera technology against them
Just back home from a shopping trip to the southwest side of Toledo, Ohio. We passed through 3 intersections that had traffic cameras and noticed an interesting fact. Traffic was backed up at all three intersections. It appeared to me that the city has shortened the green light interval at all three.
The city of St. Petersburg voted to award a contract to American Traffic Solutions to install red light cameras.
Today, the City Council looked over a fast-track contract. It will add red light cameras at 19 intersections.
However, City Council member Wengay Newton questioned why the cameras are needed.
I just saw this morning on Bay News 9, the city of St. Petersburg is pushing to have red light cameras installed at 19 intersections around the city. Bay News 9 reported that if the state legislature does indeed repeal the red light cameras, the only cities allowed to keep them will be the ones that already have them installed.
What happens when traffic signals are out/not working due to a power outage? Is it safe to assume the red light cam is also disabled due to the lack of power, or by design?
Tampa, FL, city council has just approved the addition of twenty (20) new red light cameras by the end of the year. This is a city in real financial trouble and is looking for these revenue cameras to boost their budget. It will cost $158 per ticket. I understand that they are also looking at speed cameras to get into the pockets of drivers who accelerate to beat the road sensors.
Need a little help here. I have downloaded both the Red Light and Speed camera file, and they loaded fine in the unit. The issue is when I go to the CUSTOM POI option, I can't turn them all on, I'm only limited to 10 custom POI's. I found the same issue with the US Golf Courses. Are the file numbers referencing an area of the country?
Thanks in advance!
Found this interesting news article on the internet. In part, this is a summed up version of what the article said.
For the first month beginning April 15th 2011 till May 15th 2011 it'll be a warning but after that all violators will be issued a 158$ ticket.
From the Napa (California) Register:
Red-light cameras have serious flaws, grand jury reveals
My favorite quote: "The red-light fines and fees siphon $3.3 million out of the local economy each year". Sooner or later that adds up to some real money!
do i need wave or mpg sound files for red light audio alerts ?
The San Diego Union Tribune is reporting two new red light cameras in Oceanside, CA. I have notified Miss POI so that they can be added to the POI file.
I think I've asked this question in the past, and nobody said yes.
For whatever reason, I find it annoying being the last car going through a red light intersection, because it's not possible to stop. But I usually look up and see the light is yellow, never red.
It seems like if you've run a red light, you know
it with 100% certainty.
Automated cameras will begin issuing tickets to the owners of vehicles that momentarily stray into bus lanes in New York City, New York beginning Monday. The cash-strapped metropolis imported the idea from London where a similar system generated 293,000 citations and more than £35 million (US $56 million) in 2008. New York’s bus lane tickets will run between $115 and $150 each.
