A funny story about red light cameras and Santas in Arizona. Anyone want to confess here?

Redlight and speed files

Questions

1) why does the speed file contain red light alerts as well? Shouldn't the speed file be just for speed? and the red light just for red lights?

2)Maybe the file was setup that way because you can't have both speed and redlight at the same coordinates?

3)I am thinking of copying the lines that say redlight and putting them in the redlight.csv. Bad idea?

Red Light Camera Files

Can anyone tell me how to edit a red light camera file? POI editor doesnt seem to reconize it, but excel does open the file but I have no way of knowing the exact co-ordinates to add. If I find them out will that work? and how would I find them. Thanks

Speed Camera loading for Dummies

How many would like to know how to set speed alerts to only alert if you are going to fast!!!!

Well I have searched on this site and read all the threads and even the help section in the poi loader and it was not clear to me on how this works. I have been watching and reading all this stuff and I see there are a lot of us that can’t understand a lot of this lingo.

AZ Cams-Redflex

I was reading an interesting article at http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/25/2582.asp saying Redflex that runs the AZ State cams is an Australian company.

Seems like the employees are able to exempt themselves from their own tickets too. What a scam!

Interesting Article

Found this article interesting and thought I'd share it. It's about the number of cameras in Arizona, and some differences between City and State run ones, and associated fines.

It really is like Big Brother out here!

Ticket Camera Questions

From What Communities Are Included In The Red Light Cameras File at: http://www.poi-factory.com/node/1353

Michigan is not included. Is it safe to assume that there are no cams in Michigan, or that cams are not allowed here?

Even though the topic says "Red Light Cameras", does this include communities with speed cams?

Thanks for your help!

RLT Increase Insurance?

If you receive a RLT does it effect your auto insurance premiums as a moving violation? How can they prove it was YOU driving the vehicle? Doesn't seem right if it goes on your driving record if it wasn't you driving. How can they prove it?

Has anyone just used one of those photo blocker sprays on their plates so the plate is just overexposed on the picture?

I live in California.
I got a "Notice of Violation" in the mail today from the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

Though I am the registered owner of the vehicle I am not the person in the picture.

It's interesting. It's a civil matter.
It's very carefully written!
