Looks like another good way to raise revenue in Illinois.
5-6 months ago I downloaded and transferred to my GPS the files I-4 Speed Traps and I-95 Speed Traps. I did not download the siren sound that goes with them as my GPS does not play sounds.
I forgot about those file but two days ago I was driving on I-4 (Florida) going SW at about 3-4 miles from the I-95 intersection when I got an alert telling me about a 4 MPH Speed Limit ahead.
I am going to post this here, It is worthy of everyones read. Always ask if an expert testified about the speed cameras precision.
I am also going to cut and paste the content. If this post needs to be elsewhere please move it where it need to be.

I am a new member and wanted to get the camera locations for red lights. Can someone help me do that without paying for it?
I need a volunteer from the Baltimore MD area to assist me in the verification process for a few locations.
Please send me an email
Here are a couple of articles outlining how the revenue from red light cameras are decreasing or not as expected.
Red light cameras not creating expected revenue
One reason for Oak Lawn's recently announced budget cuts is that its red light cameras haven't brought in nearly as much revenue as expected.
I've got a general question - what's a good way to tell Active Cameras, as opposed to Shut-Down cameras? I believe that around Phoenix, AZ many of the cities post camera locations on their websites, but that doesn't seem to be true in California.
I just loaded the red light cameras onto my eTrex. When it shows the approaching POI it shows the entire name.
ALERT: Red light camera.xxx
Is there a way to change what it displays. I don't have that big of a screen to start with and this alert takes up half of it. Maybe just change it to camera.
Check it out:
Just read this on the LA Times. Beverly Hills police want California legislature to allow speed cameras.
Keep up the good work Miss POI. I am sure were are going to need your services even more in the future
First of all I'm new to this, so please bear with me. When view red light camera locations I can only view cameras within 140 miles, but when I view speed traps there are some visible up to 800 miles away. I'm getting ready to take a roadtrip and wanted to make sure I have the cameras loaded for the destination.
Just last month there was the latest in a rather long line of reports noting that red light cameras tend to increase the number of accidents because people slam on their brakes to stop in time, leading to rear-ending accidents.
Just heard something on the local news that Chicago was planning on adding as many as 120+ new red light cameras to the city of chicago. I will keep ya posted!
How is it that not all my poi's are loaded into my Nuvi 360 when I do a downoad on them? I "verify" each one. I manually move the file to the Nuvi hard drive, then load again, and it seems to be fine in most cases. What's up with that?
Red light camera causes another serious accident this month in Kingsport, Tennessee.
I downloaded different audio alarms and icons for when I set off a prozimity alert. How do I change the default announcement with the Nuvi?
Well, it was only a matter of time before New Orleans decided to go full tilt on the New Cameras. According to the article, they will have between 30 and 50 by the end of the year. Currently, each camera is issuing approximately 1,000 new citations a week (@$110 ea.).
Listening to DW radio yesterday, they had an article relating to the above incidents from Mid December.
A net search shows that there have been similar incidents in England.
I personally advocate letter writing if you want one moved/deactivated.
I saw this web link it would be of value here. Unfortunately I havn't the time to make a POI file from it.
Does any one know of any sights that allow you to download POI for red light camera alerts for the Magellan 4040?
