RLC in Florida

Florida City. Dixie Highway. I was stopped at a light when an ambulance approached with siren. All lanes were blocked. I decided to proceed against the light when the cross traffic stopped. The next light had a RLC. I don't know what I would have done there.

It seems to me as if

It seems to me that the moderator would be a perfect employee for a authoritarian nanny state government. Closing the "Looks reasonable to me" thread accomplishes nothing.

The day will come when "We the people" are going to decide that we have had enough of the power grabbing scum that seem to keep getting elected and we return to a country of self-reliant freedom loving citizens.

EDIT: I changed the heading to read "a shorter yellow" vs a "shortened yellow". Which as per the article it really is.

Escort GPS Radar Detector - RLC/Safety Cam Database

Has anyone here had much experience using the Escort radar detectors that work off of GPS and utilize their own RLC / Safety Camera database?

Yellow light duration issues

Just read a recent article that some red light camera tickets might have to be invalidated due to issues concerning the duration of the yellow lights at the affected intersections. Apparently, the yellow duration was shorter than the local requirements specified.

Just something to take a look at if you receive one of these tickets in the mail.
