The [Nassau] county legislature unanimously approved a request to the state to allow Nassau to install red light cameras at 50 intersections, in hopes of reducing accidents and of generating badly needed revenue.
A new one was installed on 198E at the intersection of RT 1 South in Laurel, MD. It was just put up in the last 1-2 weeks. I don't think it is in the POI-Factory red light DB yet.
Has anyone else seen any new cameras in this area?
The reason stated by KING TV ch 5 was to raise revenue. Nothing was ever mentioned about safety. It was also stated that cameras do not deter speeding or running stops only visable law enforcement will do that. Well at least they are honest. Go figure!
Of course, this dated article has the opinion that it will not work.
Article on speed cam at wall street journal, nice read
Red light cameras too expensive in GA
Five cities in Gwinnett County have put the brakes on red-light cameras at busy intersections, many saying that even though the cameras have reduced accidents, the service has proved too costly.
Another use for ticket cameras in Dallas, TX is to enforce HOV (High Occupancy Vehicle) illegal lane changes. The article says the cameras will not enforce the number of drivers in a car, but you can bet they are wanting to.
Norman Adler got in double trouble for zipping down Cleveland's Chester Avenue. Why? Well, one punishment just wasn't enough, according to the city.
Late Tuesday afternoon, Orange County commissioners voted to install red light cameras across the county. At least 40 interesections (read list) in Orange County will be monitored by the high-tech digital cameras.
I guess I need to move to Mississippi soon
Of note is: "Mississippi joins at least eight other states in banning the automated technology, including neighboring Arkansas. Six other states are debating using cameras,..."
One month before they are due to start using the first red light and speed cameras in Montreal they have decided to lower the speed limit to 40 km/hr for the whole city.
Just wondering what the accuracy of the Red Light File is? I am sure it is pretty high, but I really don't go through that many intersections that have the camera's. So for me the accuracy level is 100%, but Just thought if I plotted 20 camera locations and then went and visited them all, would I still be at 100% or more like 93 or 94
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.
