Default How to properly identify red light/speed-on-green cameras

As I have been conducting my realworld tests of radar detectors of late, I have noticed what may be the beginnings of a greater deployment of automated traffic enforcement technology of red light camera and/or speed-on-green systems at intersections in and around the greater Philadelphia region.

Last week, I came across what looked like three such red light camera systems at intersections at Swedesboro and Deptford New Jersey (by the Deptford Mall).

I have also seen these kinds of systems quite often in the state of Virginia on some main roads.

Yesterday, I noticed some sort of camera/video survellience system at a couple of intersections at King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. And while I don't believe these particular systems are, in fact, red light cameras, I got to thinking as to how one can correctly identify these systems.

My understanding is that there are only a coupld of manufacturers actually producing this technology so it should be fairly easy to identify them (and track them) provided one knows what to look for.

I have included some pictures of the ones I came across in K of P...

Hey Veil Guy,

Try driving through central and south Florida, not to sure about north Florida, these things are poping up every where.

I really noticed these camera's the last time down in Miami, also around the theme parks in Orlando.

It's a money maker, right now the bigger cities who have the budget, then just like laser they will be everywhere.

Great info.

Blinder Dude,

You can bet we are going to pursue this disturbing trend in the coming months. No one is really talking about this stuff as it quietly makes its appearance everywhere.

I don't want to wake up one day in the world to find that we are now living in a police state. Germany tried that once as did Russia and how did it turn out?

I've had the fortune of traveling to Singapore and while it is a beautiful city/state [and clean, I might add] cameras are everywhere and its so embedded into the culture one doesn't even really think about it day to day.

I sure hope we don't end up the same way, but we are well on our way, I am afraid.

At least we have a free means to counter these heavy-handed enforcement techniques. That is, at least for now.

When they come to take away our citizens' right to bear arms is when it'll be time to leave [or something else].

Let's just hope it doesn't come to this. We as citizens still have the right to vote and that means the right to vote out administrations which support such enforcement tactics.

The first step is being situationally aware. The more people who know about the situation, the greater the chance of changing the outcome.

While such systems may appear on paper to be well-conceived, I don't think it is a good idea to be creating a class of witnesses which are not our peers.

In the meantime, I am trying to recruit some talent who knows a thing or two about automated enforcement technology.

That should help elevate this discussion to an even higher level. The sooner we all know about this subject, the better.

We have also attempting to create an robust international open-source GPS registry of automated enforcement for all the GPS detector manufacturers to share to improve their product lines in a wholesale fashion with the help of drivers in each of their local states/countries. We may not be able to eliminate the technology, but at least we can safely know where they are with such ingenious products.

In the meantime, the Veil Guy is doing a good service.

His latest blog entry reveals the usage of these red light camera systems in the Philadelphia area.

I have finished compiling a closer look at these new systems which are beginning to appear around the U.S. including Philadelphia, PA.

Interesting enough, although these are technically moving violations, the Philadelphia Parking Authority is involved. Truth is stranger than fiction, folks. How can/why should a parking authority have jurisdiction over moving traffic?

Here's the blog post:

The time to get involved in this cause, is now, before they are everywhere.
