Sarasota, Florida Red Light Cameras

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.

Locating Mobile Speed Cameras

It seems the small towns of the Eastern Shore of Maryland (and probably most of the western shore too) have fallen in love with mobile speed cameras, and the money they generate. The state legislature has OK'd speed cameras for any school zone, and the cameras are to be located anywhere within a mile of the school. For most of these towns, that means almost anywhere in the town.

Wasn't using my nuvi, and sailed through a red light intersection

It was literally turned-up at midnight on 12/2/11. NICE!!

So let's see.....I looked up and the light was yellow. This means that the system was not yet armed. It should be impossible to show my vehicle behind the stop line when the light changed to red.

I guess my point is if I'm aware of the cam, I am extra careful and prefer to safely stop if possible when yellow.

Rochester, NY Redlight Cameras

Just an FYI ...
I'm traveling this week in Rochester just hanging at the pub right now with the techs installing new redlight cameras in Rochester. They will be installing 7 more before the end of the year. They told me I have to go to Rochester's web site for the locations.

PS - beer is cold and expecting snow tomorrow.

1 mph speed alert.....what does this mean?

Several times my Garmin unit has displayed this alert. Either in green or red. To my knowledge there are no cameras near the alert area.

Can someone tell me what this alert references.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Don't bother... (you have to name the person who was driving)

Prince George's County, Maryland judges are tired of complaints that photo enforcement citations are inaccurate or otherwise invalid. To speed proceedings on "speed camera day" when automated citation cases are heard, at least one judge is cautioning motorists not to bother attempting to prove their innocence, regardless of the merit of their argument.

Washington: More Anti-Camera Initiatives to Come

Last year, 71 percent of voters in Mukilteo approved a measure outlawing cameras. On Tuesday, 65 percent of the voters in Bellingham, 65 percent in Monroe and 59 percent in Longview felt the same way. Local politicians in some jurisdictions are starting to realize the public is not on their side.

Washington Times Editorial: The speed-camera lie

The speed-camera lie
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/nov/8/the-speed-cam...

"Traditional law-enforcement duties are best performed by men, not machines. This is the case in Maryland, where speed cameras continue to pronounce the innocent guilty, regardless of mounting evidence that the measuring devices are faulty."

Denver Tickets Even After Stop

Denver in ticketing folks at red lights even after they stop, but end up just over the white line. Too bad!

Common Law

Is anyone having any success fighting RLC or Speed cameras? Any luck using a common law process?

L.A. pursues fines from red-light camera tickets after killing program

LA Times October 27, 2011

As the Los Angeles City Council voted this week to pay its defunct red-light camera program's operator to process outstanding citations, a statewide advocacy group released a scathing report of such traffic-ticket operations, saying agreements with vendors tend to focus "more on profits than safety."

Study questions outsourcing traffic camera systems

Quote:

One out of every five Americans lives in a community that pays a for-profit company to install and operate cameras that record traffic violations. A pro-consumer group says that practice could end up putting profits ahead of safety and accuracy.
