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.
After spending a year at Baltimore Ave (US1) and Berwyn Rd, The Mobile Speed Camera for northbound traffic has been moved 0.2 mi north to Baltimore Ave and Tecumseh St (38.99783,-76.93150).
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.
From the Los Angeles Times:
Glendale police will no longer issue citations for red-light violations caught by cameras set up at four intersections throughout the city, officials said.
Much thanks to the POI Factory Red Light Camera File once again. I spent the weekend down on Longboat Key and Sarasota and the red light camera file notified and informed me of four intersections I encountered on numerous occasions while driving around.
Arizona voters won't get the chance this November to ban all photo-enforcement cameras in the state.
The Senate on Tuesday voted 14-15 against Senate Concurrent Resolution 1029, which proposed to put the debate over cameras on the ballot.
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.
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.
The city did not have the authority to pass the ordinances and their procedure violates due process.
On Feb 13th, lawmakers in Burien Washington decided not to renew the city's contract with Redflex. Their red light cameras will be deactivated after the contract expires May 1, 2012.

We'll remove them from the POI Factory camera files as the contract expires.
I will be in Florida with my family next week for 11 days(from Sweden) and wonder were can I download speed & red light camera poi to Garmin ? In my for the 1690.I have already the US Maps.
I would like to do an one time download. It seems not possible from this site !
The Daily Press published an article today that tries to justify RLCs.
Granted, these are really bad intersections, but What is really interesting is how much money Redflex is getting.
Looks like we have over 50 now!
Washington Post article:
PG County camera locations:
Gaithersburg MD has installed several new speed trap cameras, not at intersections.
Fortunately I got photo'd by them while they were testing their locations and accuracy.
They're not at interesections, so I can't safely stop to record the lat/long. As we drove by at 20 mph I did a Save this location.
Is that accurate enough for reporting?
Here's a link to CNBC's report which mentions POI-Factory several times.
City settles red-light camera suit
City Council has agreed to pay its red-light camera vendor at least $4.8 million in exchange for the company taking the cameras down within 60 days and dropping its breach of contract claim against the city.
Those that claim that Automated Traffic Enforcement is primarily for revenue generation will find support in the comments on Charlack, Missouri in the following study.
