Eleven new traffic cameras were put in place Monday throughout D.C.
See article for list of locations.
For those that aren't familiar with the political situation regarding the District of Columbia, it is a federal district and up until about 30 years ago all laws for the District were made by Congress. Home Rule allowed the District to have a city council and gave the mayor many of the same rights and authorities as a state governor.
Auburn ditches red-light cameras
Posted by Lisa Cowan
Auburn has decided to get rid of its unpopular red-light cameras.
KOMO-TV reports the Auburn City Council voted 4-3 to no longer contract with a private company that operates the program.
As of Oct. 10, 2014, Nassau County's Traffic and Parking Violations Agency stopped disclosing when new speed cameras come online or how many devices are operating at any time. The agency lists these schools as having zones where the cameras potentially can operate. The dots on the map indicate the location of the schools and not necessarily the streets where the speed zones are.
Say what you will of the Ticket Clinic. I hired them once and they got me out of a very costly Florida Highway Patrol speeding ticket that I totally deserved. I had an immaculate driving record which is why I hired them. But, that's a whole nuther story and discussion.
Since I am always one to "fact check", I need to post this article
There is a lot of criticism for red light cameras on these forums. Maybe the color of the future, "Green", will placate some folks. What do you think?
Speed Cameras in School Zones: What motorists need to know. (Locations & the law)

"SCHOOL SPEED ZONE" SHALL MEAN A DISTANCE NOT TO EXCEED ONE THOUSAND THREE HUNDRED TWENTY FEET (1/4 mile) ON A HIGHWAY (street) PASSING A SCHOOL BUILDING, ENTRANCE OR EXIT OF A SCHOOL ABUTTING ON THE HIGHWAY
This is good news in my opinion...
This coming Fri. 11/7 , theoretically the city of NY will begin to enforce a 5 mph drop in speed limit to 25 mph.
How they are going to enforce it is not defined. IE: Cameras, Cops standing in the middle of the street with radar guns???
Stupid doesn't begin to define this change.
The minute you step on the gas with no car in front of you, you're almost up at 25mph.
Houston Mayor Annise Parker, meanwhile, blames drivers refusing to pay for "their illegal actions." Biggest joke of a mayor in the US.
Florida court of appeals has ruled that red light camera tickets issued prior to July, 2013, to drivers of rental cars, are invalid. Such drivers had to pay a larger fine for the same violation.
Also, the city where the court said all red light camera tickets are invalid is still issuing tickets and collecting fines, pending appeal.
Chicago cameras have revenue shortfall.
Today, my wife had stopped at a red light in a left turn lane along with a number of other cars that were ahead of her at a red light camera intersection. The light turned green and the cars ahead were all turning left.
Early in his tenure, Gov. Chris Christie saw red-light cameras as a way to augment traditional traffic enforcement and keep motorists safe on New Jersey roads. Lately, he's seen the automated traffic technology as more of a nuisance.
The article starts out by oddly saying there are only two red light cameras. There are many more - there's one by my house in the middle of a very busy intersection where locals have noticed the yellow light getting shorter and shorter.
Saw this article on Dayton
I looked around to see if I could find what prompted the article but was unable to locate some recent event that might offer more details or other specifics; however, I was unable to find any.
