Traffic Cams 101 Sunday, Apr 5 2020 

Almost everybody would freak out when they see or hear about a red lights cam. You know, those traffic cams that take actual pictures of your car? It works like this, the red light cam targets you then a few seconds later you see blinking red and blue lights in your rearview mirror. Just like that, you’ve have committed a traffic violation. What happens next?

All governments want their rules enforced. Using traffic cameras many governments save money and enhance their area.

Traffic Cameras

There are two types of traffic cameras:

  • Enforcement traffic cams
  • Non-enforcement traffic cams

A red light cam is one kind of an enforcement camera that all drivers typically want to avoid. This automatically captures the images of vehicles going beyond the red light boundaries in an intersection. The system issues tickets to violators.

Another example of an enforcement cam is a speed camera. If you don’t have a home office and speed a lot of time driving, you’re well aware of the danger of speeding tickets. It shares the same basic concept with a red light camera. It automatically detects, captures, and issue violation tickets to vehicles that do not conform to the speed limits.

If red light cameras are installed in heavy traffic areas, speed cameras are fixed in less populated roads and areas where frequent over-speeding is a complaint, say for example a residential area where this violation is frequently observed.

Non-enforcement cameras include sensor cams and automated number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras. Traffic sensor cams are not in any way connected to any type of system for traffic enforcement; these only record the flow of traffic and the timing of traffic lights.

In general, data from these types of cameras are not archived or pulled out for reconstruction of incidents. ANPRs are, however, combined with artificial intelligence that would enable the camera to read plate numbers, but are not in any way tied to an auto-ticketing system. This type helps in tracing vehicles and the driver, too.

Related Advantages

Traffic cameras help decrease speeding and running red lights. Due to the associated penalties for the violations, drivers are motivated to follow the related traffic rules to avoid penalties. This means that although there will still be violations, there will not be fewer in number.

This equipment reduces accidents. Because people will not want to receive the penalty of a violation, they will drive more carefully. With more careful drivers on the road, fewer accidents will happen.

Traffic equipment saves money. Because these machines can monitor traffic more efficiently than humans, the principality can save money. But, not just the city will be saving money. When fewer accidents will happen, fewer people ending up in the morgue or in hospitals. This enhances the economy which is good for everyone.

Video footage may be a way to end arguments easily. If a vehicle hits another vehicle, both parties often claim innocence. Who was at fault? Having video footage often end these kinds of arguments. If a lawsuit is filed, the video footage becomes a powerful material in court.

Video removes doubt. When you get involved in vehicular accidents, even when it is not your fault you cannot help but think about what really happened. Impacts happen in a flash so you would not really know what happened in the crash. But video footage can help with this dilemma. CCTV footage will help ease your mind and take the doubt away.

Traffic cameras help commuters. Drivers can check live updates as to where the congestion is or any kind of obstruction so they can find a quicker route. Radio and television newsfeeds are also based on this. Louisville traffic cams, for example, are live to anyone with internet access. Now mobile phones or GPS equipment can access these feeds for more convenience.

Projecting infrastructure needs. Road maintenance, future road enhancements, as well as route planning, are benefited by traffic cams. Footages can also be archived as documentation for future reference.
