Are the files already under Red Light cameras also include locations in Canada as well? Or is that something we can start contributing?

Red Light Camera Intersections with tricky pedestrian signals

The other day, I came across an RLC intersection. As I approach, the pedestrian signal turned and started counting down...5,4,3,2,1. I slowed down and stopped at the intersection. The light stayed GREEN, the pedestrian signal turned to "don't walk". After a slight wait, I continued on driving across the intersection. Luckily I was alone and no other cars were behind me.

Speed Cameras in St. Louis

Simply amazing admission by the STL Police Chief:
- Speed cameras exist to reaise money
- Placed where speed limits set atrifically low to entice you to speed.

Evidently okay to screw and violate the rights of those who can afford it. How about don't screw anyone!

Embedded Guardrail Radar Gun/Camera System

Reportedly installed somewhere along the 20-mile elevated stretch of I-10 that crosses the Atchafalaya River Basin between Lafayette and Baton Rouge, LA, a motion detector triggers the gun, which sends a photo of any offending vehicle to a waiting law enforcement vehicle about a mile ahead.

Baltimore COUNTY - Red Light & Speed Cameras

To Angela (et al) -

I know the info below is NOT in the standard full-format for new POI listings (e.g. Lat/Long coordinates, speed limits, etc). However, I thought I would all least post this to help get this addition started.

Below is the current (as of 9/12/2013) listing of both Red Light -and- Speed Cameras in Baltimore COUNTY.

Drivers, beware: D.C. to aim more cameras at traffic scofflaws

Any indication in POI files of camera's side of street?

Hi, I was wondering is there any indication in either the red light or speed camera POI files to tell which street the camera is on if it is at an intersection or give some sort of indication of direction of the street?

Thanks

POI Factory Red Light Camera Alerts

I downloaded a trial of Cyclops a few weeks ago just to see how it works with the Red Light Camera alerts. It warns with a beep, and a red bar with the impending distance to the camera. I was wondering what type of alert the POI file offers. Is it similar???

Florida to make it very expensive to appeal a camera ticket

"If you fight a red-light ticket under Florida's new rules, be prepared to pay more.

Although changes in state law were designed partly to make it easier to challenge a ticket issued because of a red-light camera, the new rules also allow local governments to tack on costs for hearing an appeal: up to $250 per case.

Nassau County installing 50 new RLC

I just saw the first 2 the next round of 50 that NYS has approved in Nassau County.

I submitted them for review.

FYI, I understand Suffolk county was also approved for more cameras.
