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 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.

Recent USA Today Article

I have provided a link to a recent article in USA Today regarding cities installing red light cameras just to raise money.

Driving while deceased?

In Florida being dead is not a good excuse.

DON'T WANT ALERTs FOR RLC NOT ON MY ROUTE

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.

Missing Tampa Red Light Camera In Latest File

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.

Chicago

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.

More Red Light Cameras in Florida

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.

RLC and Speed file from Trapster for Garmin and Tom Tom

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.
