It was reported in the Toledo Blade this morning that the state of Ohio is debating authorizing the installation of speed cameras along Interstate highways. The report said that they would be installed in construction zones to catch people who speed and endanger the lives of highway workers.

"GPS FOR SCOFFLAWS
LETS DRIVERS ELUDE RED-LIGHT CAMS, DWIS"
OH MY GOD the Evil doers strike again (my editorial comment)
Anyone hear anything about Red Light Cameras coming to Connecticut? Thought I saw something on the news about it the other day. And if so, they must be getting desperate for revenue.
I think I might have missed something.
What is the redlight beta file in the download? How does it differ?
I am seeing count down red lights in Surprise, AZ.
These lights have a per second count down (till light change) shown in the walk/no walk indicators. This is intended for the pedestrians but will undoubtedly be used by drivers.
Tighten up that seat belt........
Here in Edmonton Alberta we have had red light cameras for awhile now. Now it was reported in the news that they will now track and ticket speeding through red lights with those same cameras! In your areas how has that change contributed to possible rear end collisions? I have always known that people do speed up through lights when they change from green to yellow.
See current article at this website:
"An increasing number of motorists in California are doing their research and challenging red-light camera tickets in court. Many have been successful in fighting these tickets. Several of those who were convicted, have appealed their conviction and got it overturned based on the city's failure to comply with the California vehicle code.
I had a chance to talk to an off-duty police officer yesterday, who told me a little about the Lone Tree redlight camera (-104.87305, 39.53629, Red Light Camera .026dr, CO Lone Tree poi-factory Feb25 09).
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!!!
