    Re: Red Light/Speeding Camera's coming to Cedar Rapids

    Stop lights and 55 mph+ speed zones do not mix very well, IMO. I hate those kind of roads.

    And I hate red light/speeding cameras even more. That's what police officers are for.

    They have them where I live. Trust me. They suck. they usually place them in areas where there is a sub-standard roadway design or condition ensuring the cameras pay for themselves.

    Wow. Those 55 mph zones absolutely suck too. Gotta watch my speed now for sure.

    I swear they changed the lights to garner more tickets from these on Hickman in Clive.

    Drivers Try an Anti-Photo Finish (washingtonpost.com)

    The Denver Police Department, at the behest of Fox News, conducted a road test two years ago and found that PhotoBlocker was effective, plate covers less so. Similar results were found by TV news programs in Great Britain, Australia and Sweden.

    Re: Red Light/Speeding Camera's coming to Cedar Rapids

    here in albuquerque, the photo enforced lights were found to have shorter yellow lights by up to 3 seconds shorter, thus causing more infractions and generating more money to the company. I know europe uses this stuff, and I agree that london should use cameras for arresting hoodlums, but this computer generated citation is BS.

    Re: Red Light/Speeding Camera's coming to Cedar Rapids

    Anyone in CR that can test and see how long the yellow at a camera enforced light is compared to a non camera intersection should try and let us know!

    I must say that going 6 over and downhill was my first red light camera infraction, and it ****** me off because I didnt know they were for speeding too.

    Yeah, a lot of instances where the yellow light time is manipulated to generate revenue.

    Re: Red Light/Speeding Camera's coming to Cedar Rapids

    I got busted by a red light camera for turning right on a red without fully coming to a stop. It was right after the light for my direction changed to red. I appealed and the officer let me off.

    I don't mind them. Red light running (and the accidents caused by it) are terrible around here. Not enough money to pay cops...
