A court challenge forced officials in Victoria, Australia to admit last week that red light cameras at eight intersections have been extremely productive because the yellow warning times were illegally short. The yellows fell short anywhere between 0.5 and 1.5 seconds with the incorrect timing in place, in one instance, for seven-and-a-half years.
There is no evidence that the red light camera program in Tallahassee, Florida has done anything to reduce the number of collisions in the city, according to Tallahassee City Auditor Sam M. McCall. McCall's office released a report on the program late last month based upon a review of the available evidence for the program that became operational August 1, 2010.

"Both red light related collisions and rear end collisions increased at intersections with red light cameras in the period after the cameras were install as compared to a similar time period before camera installation,"
Flashes at one of Pohatcong Township’s red light camera intersections will soon fade out.

Many people find speed cameras frustrating, and some in the region are taking their rage out on the cameras themselves.
But now there's a new solution: cameras to watch the cameras.

New Red Light Digital Camera System
I just saw on Bay News 9 that Manatee County officials have added two new red light camera intersections. They will go active as far as issuing tickets on October 15th.
The locations are:
53rd Ave West & 34th Street West
15th Street East & 57th Ave East

Baytown, Texas sued in federal court for ticketing man who protested red light cameras by holding a sign.
Noticed in a couple of cities around here that there are speed cameras setup in front of various schools. In general there is a "normal" speed limit when school is not in session and then a specific speed during school hours. There are speed cameras mounted at both ends of the zone. There is usually a yellow flashing light with a sign warning of the "school zone speed".
Rochester city employees caught by red-light cameras 119 times - but violators won't have to pay
A review of the accident history at red light camera intersections in Hallandale Beach, Florida suggests automated ticketing machines have failed to yield an overall safety benefit since Arizona-based American Traffic Solutions (ATS) began paying for the right to issue tickets and collect fines at a pair of intersections more than two years ago.
Seems like Monkey county has a finite set of speed cameras that they are constantly shuffling around the county. I've seen these devices installed one week at one place then removed and put somewhere else.
For the record, these devices are avout 2 feet square and about 3 1/2 feet tall, usually silver sometimes green.
What gives? it certainly makes the speed camera files hectic.
