With the last two updates of Redlight-Camera.csv (my current file is 11/09/2008), I'm getting speed alert warnings. The warnings usually are accompanied by the alert tone on my nuvi 350 sounding once or repeatedly. The text of the warning is: "Speed alert ahead: 1 km/h."

Let the remarks commence...
I know speed, and red light cameras are common now. A city near me is experimenting with bus lane cameras.
Bus lanes are reserved for buses and bicycles during rush hours. They are usually the lane next to the curb and they are marked with diamonds. The only time a car can be in the bus lane is if they plan to turn right in less than a block.
Enforcement of the red-light cameras begins today with warning letters, followed by fines in a month. I previously sent Miss POI the coordinates for these cameras, so they should show up soon in the file.
The city also will have a mobile speed van -- can't help you there!
Red light cameras are being installed in Florida cities but the state has never authorized them. Here is an article where a number of them are being activated today in Orlando. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/orange/orl-b3repor...
What category do cameras that read your speed and display it to you go into? They don't take pictures, as far as I know. Though they might be keeping records for future applications (a camera, or a speed bump).
I have been working hard to make sure that the redlight and speed camera files are accurate.
I have been removing locations that are reported as having damaged or destroyed equipment.
I have had someone bring it to my attention that these locations will probably be fixed and back up and running.
If you live in or travel through Arizona, you may be interested in this website for a group that appears to be dedicated to the eradication of such cameras: http://www.camerafraud.com/. I am not endorsing this site or this movement; I am merely bringing it to the attention of those who may find it of use or interest.
Anyone know how many POIs for cameras in Ft. Collins CO are in the latest POI file?
Most of us seem to agree that the redlight cameras are a way for the cities to get a few extra bucks from the unfortunate motorists. We have also discussed (in other forums) that there is no consistency (in terms of duration) for yellow lights to turn red.
This radar detector has a built in gps that has a red light/speed camera database. The database can be updated through usb on the computer. I believe the database is maintained by escort.
I just read on AZCentral that DPS has pulled their 2 mobile van camera units. Apparently, there are two companies that the State buys the cameras/radar units from and the one that didn't get the bid complained about the other radar units not being certified by the FCC. So, the State has pulled the units from use until it is sorted out. If anyone wants to read the article, clink on this link:
On my way home yesterday I noticed a camera mounted on the W.150th off ramp (at the bottom of the ramp) of 480W in Cleveland, Ohio.
Has anyone else noticed this camera?
Is this a new traffic camera going up?
Apparently, Dallas is not getting the desired results from their intense 62 camera installation - and NO the results are NOT safety! Results are measure in - tata - MONEY! Apparently many "underperforming" camera are turned off
Not sure about the posting rules on this forum but I'll put this up until the moderator decides to leave it or not.
I wanted to take a moment to post about what is happening in this area.
There are quite a few cameras that were installed last year by one company and then they switched to another company and then added different cameras and locations.
The old cameras are still up but not active, so if you see a camera in Montgomery, AL and your unit does not alert you, don't be alarmed.
