The fight for more revenue continues:
Motorists may notice a new type of speed camera on Valley freeways, but it's a bit harder to spot than the traditional stationary camera or speed van.
In the new enforcement camera zip file, there's a "beta" file in there -- anyone know what this is for or what's the difference?
I was borrowing my sister's car the other week, and I rolled 10mph to a right hand turn. Driving in the city, when trying to find an address, sometimes people get a little distracted and might not come to a absolute full stop. Well surprise surprise, in my sister's mail came a ticket from the lovely people running Chicago for a $100! Lovely.
A redlight camera that generated a million dollars in fines in 75 days is being turned off. http://theexpiredmeter.com/?p=2049
While not mentioned in the article, today's morning news reported that the owners of the nearby Woodfield Mall, one of the largest in the Chicago area, were afraid that irate customers would shop elsewhere.
A village took down two cameras in their village after they found that accidents increased after installing cameras. The camera generated 1 million worth of tickets though in a year.
I am not in favor or against taking down the camera. I definitely approve the first step of acknowledging the fact, that the process of red-light trafic camera is not fully mature yet.
The city of Chattanooga, Tennessee will refund $8800 in red light cameras tickets issued to motorists trapped by an illegally short yellow time. Municipal Court Judge Russell Bean on Monday dismissed charges against 176 vehicle owners cited by an automated ticketing machine located at Martin Luther King Boulevard and Pine Street.
One camera can catch a driver speeding through a red light. Two cameras seem to accelerate speculation.
Many Knoxvillians have noticed an extra camera being placed behind existing cameras.
MORRISTOWN (WATE) -- A plan to put East Tennessee's first speed camera into operation in Morristown on Monday was delayed by snow.
Police Chief Roger Overholt says he thinks the camera, which is a speed and red light camera, will go into operation at the intersection of College Square Mall and Crockett Square later this week.
This map shows the mall's location:
Sunday I drove from Goodyear, AZ to Mesa, AZ approx. 65 miles across Phoenix freeways. Here are some observations and opinions.
The Phoenix area has a large number of enforcement cameras.
The enforcement cameras are well marked.
Saw a good number of mobile cameras as well.
Traffic generally traveled the speed limit to + 5 mph.
There is a red light camera on the way home to work. I have started to avoid it all together. I have already seen 3 rear ending accident in last one year. Think about, how many might have happened which I have not seen myself.
I have seen people applying brakes suddenly to yellow and then get rear ended by driver behind them.
Drove to Phoenix Yesterday and on I10 east bound coming into Phoenix we passed over 15 speed cameras in a 25 mile span of road. I had just updated my camera list. Half of the cameras were not on the list. I know everybody here is updating the list as fast as they can. You could end up up with 15 speeding tickets in the mail after you go through Phoenix. BEWARE!!!
I noticed an 18 wheeler with a long trailer running a red light at a camera intersection but I didn't see the camera flash. Got me to wondering if the cameras might not be able to take a picture because the rigs are too long? Looks like at some intersections the big rig extends from one white line to the other.
Any big rig driver's here ever get a ticket from a red light camera?
In today's Cleveland OH Plain Dealer...
"Cleveland faces a possible avalanche of court challenges to tickets issued by the city's controversial traffic cameras after a lawyer won an unprecedented court ruling Thursday.
Kansas City will no longer be just issuing warnings, but now tickets to red light cameras.
I have verified that you cannot get a speeding ticket in the state of Missouri via a speed camera (red light cameras are different). I know that there are speed cameras in MO in the POI files, and I know that this should not be the case.
I passed a strange looking camera that was bolted to an electrical transformer this morning.
I didn't think that NJ was supposed to have ticket cameras. This differs from the standard traffic cameras that are mounted to light poles.
Can anyone identify what this thing is?
I guess we can't hot link in photos, so I put this on a flickr account, web address below:
Does the Nuvi 200 support the mp3 alerts or do I have to convert to be able to use alerts? Or does the the file I downloaded have a built in default alert sound?
I am stumbling along with this new Zumo 550 and need some help.
I've loaded the POIs I wanted, and it comes up in favorites on the 550 and all I have to do is select and import them for them to be active. Does this means they will pop up on my screen as I am close to them?
Just wondering if having a red light and ticket camera warning on a GPS activated, if founded, is illegal in certain states?
More grist for the windmill. I haven't seen this posted here before:
As an aside, I wonder what the benefit of "3-d images of vehicles" would be for an enforcement camera?
