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.
The speed-camera lie
"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."
While driving westbound on 10th ave N at the corner of S Congress ave in the city of Lake Worth Florida I saw that there's a red light camera.
Cities Blink on Traffic Cameras - More Ask if Devices Used to Catch Drivers Running Red Lights Are for Safety or Revenue (Fair Use Excerpt)

Officials in Albuquerque, N.M., are expected to decide Monday whether to join the small but growing number of cities that have switched off cameras meant to catch motorists running red lights.
Denver in ticketing folks at red lights even after they stop, but end up just over the white line. Too bad!

Is anyone having any success fighting RLC or Speed cameras? Any luck using a common law process?
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."
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.
I have provided a link to a recent article in USA Today regarding cities installing red light cameras just to raise money.
In Florida being dead is not a good excuse.
Not sure if I worded the topic very well. I can't find the answer via search.
I'm driving on the Long Island Expressway. I don't need to hear an alert every time I'm near a RLC on the service road.
Is there some kind of option that might help. The warning would be helpful if I was going to be exiting but not if I'm staying on the Long island Expressway.
Just this past Saturday morning while driving through Tampa at 5:30 am on the way to host the radio show I co-host from time to time, I came up on a new red light camera that shot photos and had warning signs, but did not show up on my GPS with the latest file from here.
This is a story my newspaper The Ledger posted this morning on a Polk County Judge's ruling about a red light camera lawsuit against the city of Haines City and there red light camera citations.

Evidence must be qualified, and judge ruled that in some cases, it is not.

Original title: What happened to the NYC Speed Camera post?
I was about to reply to it with a couple of links and it disappeared...
Communities in Illinois can not install speed cameras. Hizzoner & a spokesman are concerned about safety of the citizens. The mayor wants the legislature to pass a bill allowing the cameras.
I heard on the news today the city of Brooksville which is not far from Tampa, will be installing red light cameras early next year.
I will post more information when I hear more about them.
I looked at the file and it is very inaccurate. I looked at Rochester NY where there are 17 cameras. Since the input is by users and only verified by users they can put in what ever they want. The users are the ones that verify. If there are not enough users to verify then the data is not accurate.
Of the 17 Red Light Cameras we have, they show 11.
