Regarding red light cameras, Nassau county has signs in front of all the intersections with cameras, but NYC doesnt.

 

 

If you use the Waze app you will get an audio warning anytime to approach a red light camera.

I got nailed in Washington DC with 2 speed cameras less than 2 miles apart. The warning sign was mere feet away from the camera so, no time to react. The area was a 50mph. I had the cruise set at 65mph and I was traveling down this hwy at 6:30am on a Saturday morning....no cars around. First camera got me doing 64mph. That was a $100 fine. 2nd camera was on a decline and got me doing 66mph. That one cost me $150.

 

If the vehicle was registered in my name, I never would have paid the fines however, the significant other didn't want to hear it and made me pay the fines.

i dont think that camera is a speed camera, likely just a traffic camera. there is no speed sensor, and no flash.

No, the highway in the MD/DC area is absolutely notorious for the speed cams.

Which is still better than VA where they put you in jail for speeding.

Yes, they sure are, but that kind of camera you circled is more of a traffic flow monitoring camera. 

 

This is a DC speed camera:

I just read that article, I didn't finish it because it was unnecessarily long. But holy crap, jail for speeding.

Virginia is notorious for giving out speeding tickets. I was lucky, but my colleagues​ husband ex NYPD active FDNY and her active PD didn't help. He got nailed over 20 mph. Very expensive trip.

" Big Brother is Watching You. "    It's still astounding today that this simple 5 word quote from almost 70 years ago could be so profound .

Maybe. All I know is I got 2 tickets in the mail on that road.

yeah, those keystone cops really suck. i was down there seeing a girl i met earlier in the year on a mason trip down to Lynchburg. I was driving her truck with her to a wedding in Waynesboro, and passed a cop with somebody pulled over. i was doing about 20 over the limit of 60.  i figured he was busy, and not caring about me. i was wrong. about a mile up the road he pulls me over. i showed him my ID and he said, "i can give you a break on the speed, but not the ticket". he wrote it for 9 mph over the limit. i paid $100 when i got back home. no points, no nothing. but still.
