This would be interesting technology if it could work as advertised.
"In addition to photographing those who run red lights and violate the speed limit, Hargadine said this particular camera technology can predict when a vehicle will run through an intersection and prevent the opposing signals from turning green. That technology could cut down on crashes and property damage and save lives"
I didn't even know Baltimore had mobile cameras
"There are eight mobile speed cameras around the City, mainly around school zones. They rotate between 65 different locations."

This was in the Chicago Tribune today.
While I was reading it, I couldn't help but think that the reason police are writing fewer tickets, is because of the explosion of ATEs in the Chicagoland area.
Sometimes you get lucky in court. Here's how I pled my case:
There is a camera at the intersection of Jefferson & Denbigh. The coordinates are -76.51876, 37.13967.
The keep going up no matter how we feel. "It's for our safety" (not their revenue).
10 new cameras
Saw this printed in my paper today from the Tampa Bay Times formerly the St. Pete Times as of today.

This may be old data, but I didn't see these locations mentioned in the Forum - nor are at least two of the intersections in the POI file that I recently downloaded.
Fletcher Avenue & Bruce B. Downs Boulevard
Sligh Avenue & Habana Avenue
Brandon Town Center & Brandon Boulevard
Bloomingdale Avenue & Bell Shoals Road
Waters Avenue & Dale Mabry Highway
Do the newer Nuvi's (ie 50LM) have trouble playing sound alerts?
I guess they took the mp3 playing feature out of the new Nuvi's to bring down the price?
It seems that Spokane Washington Red Cameras are having a hard time legally.

Arizona-based company releases video highlighting importance of controversial cameras
BASTROP, Texas -- Drivers in Bastrop will soon join those in Austin and Round Rock as they watch out for red light cameras.
The city began a 30 day warning period less than a week ago. Officials are sending notices and pictures to red light runners but no fine.
The cameras are set up at two busy intersections: State Highway 95 and Jackson Street as well as Tahitian Drive and Highway 71.
Oldsmar City Council approved them on December 8th.
•Northbound Forest Lakes Boulevard at Tampa Road
•Eastbound Tampa Road at St. Petersburg Drive East
•Eastbound Curlew Road at Gull Aire Boulevard
•Northwestbound Tampa Road at State Road 580.
On Tuesday, the Gardena City Council unanimously voted to terminate the contract with their Australian automated ticketing vendor, Redflex Traffic Systems, because the program was losing money and failed to reduce accidents.
Chad vents over the ticket he got in the mail.
I was early to an office XMAS party, so since the venue was at a red light intersection, I decided to walk to the corner and observe.
The cams were looking at only 2/4 directions of the intersection, westbound, and northbound.
The east/west is a state highway, heavily, heavily traveled and lots of vehicles. The north/south is more of a local road, not that much traffic.
Came across this story today at Bay News 9's website.
No Grace Period For Brooksville Red Light Runners
Since 1991, there have been a total of 24 election contests in Arizona, California, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, New Mexico, Ohio, Texas, Washington. With one exception, automated ticketing has failed by as much as 86 percent. One city did embrace the use of cameras after uniformed police officers were dispatched to go door-to-door to "encourage" citizens to keep the ticketing system in place.
Enforcement of Sarasota's red light camera(s) began last week:
Starting Thursday (December 1st), the first of 10 approved red light cameras will start operating throughout the city of Sarasota. There is no grace period where warnings will be issued, Capt. Paul Sutton of the Sarasota Police Department said.
