Default My prayers for red-light cameras have been answered!

Whether it was my prayers or the actual need for cash by the city, my
prayers have been answered. See, l lived in the corner of a major
thoroughfare where I witnessed three motorcycle accidents that made me
sell my scooter.

So now that I don't have the scooter, and I'm waiting for better times
for the bicycles, I must be careful when I drive. I have made it a
practice to stop before time, but I'm still nervous of other drivers
forcing me to run the light, like when they keep going and I am in the
middle of the intersection.

If I get a ticket despite my utmost care then I'll take back my
prayers and try to ride a bus or a bicycle --traffic allowing. You
must always have a Plan B in the jungle.

NOTE: I remember the times when running the light was a bloody sport
and I'm still for the cameras.

I'd be more excited if there were a way for them to ticket bicyclists,
who are the most flagrant/frequent RLRers. On the upside, when they get
too blatant/arrogant it's a self-regulating problem.

Sorry, a lot of drivers will quit and start riding bikes. Have you
considered that, including all the unwanted weight you'd lose?

No one can"force" you to run the light. You're as bad as the idiots
who say speeders on the freeways force everyone else to speed.!!! I
never speed or run reds and no criminal is gonna force me to. I got
balls.

You can only be stupid to cut off a car coming at you determined to
run the red light and whatever stands on his way.

Actually you'll be charged for the accident too!

You are obssessed with speed without minding where that speeding
happens. For example, I do NOT mind a Ferrari going 120 mph on the
expressway on the passing lane.

OK, this is the situation in Belgium and Germany which I gathered
around. For an eyewitness account, you must kindly provide airline
tickets, car rental fees and hotel accommodations. Lunch is on me...

"Just a perspective from over the pond.
In Belgium (or at least in Flanders) there are a lot of camera's. We
have 3 kinds:
1. Trafiic lights. They detect if you run through red lights and only
that no speeding. Mostly places on dangerous crossings. Sometimes they
are combined with speed camera's but that's rare
2. Speed camera's mostly on rural roads in buildup area's where people
really should be carefull of there speed
3. Highway patrols. Sometimes moving along with traffic or standing on
the side of the road with a speed gun.

Most people here think that the government only installs these to get
more money, while there effect has been proven to lower accident if
placed on accident sensitive locations. I coulnd't care less, since I
never speed.
For the hacker command, we use camera's taht aren't connected to any
network, so no hacking is possible. Yes, that means that from time to
time somebody needs to go by every camera to get it's picture and put
in a new catridge (analog or digital).
Also bnther, thos camera's are correct. Theve been calibrated plus
they allow a tolarence. If the speed limit is pe. 55mph they only
start flashing at 60mph.
Another interesting thing they do here in Belgium: Since the camera
itself is quit expensive they only by a few but construct a lot more
poles to put them on. Since you can't see from you're car if that box/
pole has a camera inside. You'll slow down for every pole (or not
speed to begin with) They move the camera's around so you never can be
sure where the real ones are."

***

I was impressed at how rigidly Germans obeyed the speed limits when I
was driving over there last month.

I was also impressed at how reasonable those speed limits were, for
the most part. Urban areas and high traffic areas limited, highways
with a high "recommended speed" of 130 km/h. (I also understand that
although the police do not enforce a speed limit, if someone gets into
an accident above the recommended speed, it could impact the
willingness of their insurance provider to cover the cost of the
accident.) In other words, they weren't playing the silly games that
U.S. highway patrols do on rural highways, hiding behind billboards or
trees. The traffic cameras keep a strict eye on the areas (around
exits or in urban/developed areas,) where the speed is properly
limited. Slower traffic keeps right, faster traffic keeps left. If we
were to move in that direction, it would be an improvement from where
we are now, at least from a driving safety and efficiency standpoint.
On a technical level, things seem to work well.

However.... I am still concerned at the civil liberties implications
of government cameras taking pictures for law enforcement purposes.

***

About the government having you in check... no big deal. It's the
government "by the people, for the people, etc." But they'll be
feeding on the real bad guys.

Don't be ridiculous. If you're already in the middle of an
intersection you're either already running the light or you're with
the green and perfectly legal.

God Lord, I certainly mind somebody going 120 MPH regardless of the
car and regardless if they're Michael Schumacher.

Common place in Germany. But with true socialism we can ban Ferraris.

Having a Ferrari in America though is a teasing game.

That's in theory but maybe the camera catches you anyway. That's a
concern of mine.
