I started using my Escort Passport 8500 X50 to see how it worked with the DPS Mobile Radar units. I am not impressed with the performance. This is by no means a scientific test but don't count on your radar detector to reliably notify you in time when you come up on one.
Another questioin that I'm sure has already been answered through discussion... But I'll ask anyways
I have a Garmin 750, is there a way to have the unit determine direction of travel so it doesn't notify me of a camera on the other side of the freeway?
With so many speed cameras going up in the Phoenix area this thing is always screaming at me!
I've noticed on the San Tan 202 in Arizona over the past month that drivers have slowed down considerably. I myself set my cruise control to about 69mph (speed limit is 65) and the majority of the traffic is going about the same or a bit slower. Of course there are a few who continue to zip along at a higher speed.
Red Light Camera company announces a new "service" of also checking for uninsured motorists to generate more tickets. They are just connecting to an insurance database with the camera system to check for current insurance when it records your license.
Hi all, I have read various forum topics about red light and speed cameras and have been of the opinion that if you do no wrong you do not have a problem. I hope I am not wrong because of the following. I was headed north on Hwy 59 north of Houston. My trusty 750 gave me the alert in plenty of time for a red light camera in Dibill, Tx.
Money-makers for Delaware. A recent article in the local paper:
DOVER, Del.- More red-light cameras are coming to Delaware. Ten additional cameras are set to be installed on state highways this year.
The state already has 20 red-light cameras and the Delaware Department of Transportation said it is handing out thousands of tickets each year.
The town of New Carrolton's new mobile red light cameras are snapping up pictures like the paparazzi and motorists are calling the cameras out.
Danielle King got two tickets and says she's been wrongly accused. "I got caught by one up there," says King referring to the cameras along route 450.
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?
