Baltimore City has suspended camera enforcement

There was a short article in the newspaper over the weekend that Baltimore City suspended all red light camera and speed camera enforcement in mid April.

California: City Obsessed With Red Light Camera Ticket Numbers

California is the largest market for red light cameras in the country thanks to the fines set by the state running nearly $500 each. Municipalities that adopt the technology are quick to deny any possibility that financial considerations have anything to do with their decisions to monitor local intersections.

TAMPA BAY, Florida -- A subtle, but significant tweak to Florida's rules regarding traffic signals has allowed local cities and counties to shorten yellow light intervals, resulting in millions of dollars in additional red light camera fines.

Ticket cameras as a revenue source

I saw this interesting article about how ticket cameras are a major government revenue source.

Do we really want to live in a "Big Brother" society where the government constantly tracks all of our movements?

What do speed traps, parking tickets, toll roads, speed cameras and red light cameras all have in common? They are all major revenue sources for state and local governments.

MD Beige Speed Cameras

Are showing up around town. At first I thought they were portable but noticed the are mounted on cement slabs.

Escort Defender Database...Type of File Format?

Hello all! I'm new to the forum and thought I would make my first posting. Does anyone know what POI file format is used in the Escort Defender database? I have an Escort 9500ix radar detector/gps unit with a Defender subscription and I'm curious if it is possible to manipulate the files. I'm interested in personalizing the information uploaded to my unit.

another case imho for a ticket cam

I was leaving a plaza today, in the left turn only lane.

Guess what? There is a woman in a white Nissan, TO MY LEFT, with her right signal on.

She is on the wrong side of the traffic island, and had traveled the wrong direction for the length of the road leading to the plaza.

California: Firm Rigs Data In Bid To Keep Red Light Cameras

Ever since November when voters in Murrieta, California rejected red light cameras at the ballot box, American Traffic Solutions (ATS) has been on a campaign to turn them back on. The strategy has been two-fold: use the courts to overturn the public's decision, then convince the city council to reactivate the devices in the name of public safety.

I was at an intersection today, and I counted 6 cars that blew the red light across my path.

I am all for a red light cam at this particular intersection, although I realize that 90% of the folks here are against it. What are the alternatives?

Looking at electonic maps is now illegal.

This is not about ticket cameras. Sorry, this was the most appropriate forum for posting this.

The court of appeals just published a ruling that you cannot look at maps on your phone while driving. Not sure if that goes for another electronic mapping device like a GPS unit, but this is disturbing.

Apparently this guy lost in court and appealed on his own without legal help and now this is a published case, which is caselaw.

Louisiana: Jefferson Parish To Refund Red Light Camera Tickets

Officials in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana are moving forward on plans to refund $4.7 million in red light camera tickets. Council Chairman Chris L.
