    I think it has only been confirmed in NYC: www.rdforum.org: NYC Speed Camera - MultaRadar

    Lots of threads wondering when MRCD will come to different parts of the US if you do a search, but the above is the only confirmed report I've seen.

    It's actually MRCT in NYC. I know a couple locations of the cameras near me.

    There was also MRCD in Maryland when I was down there few weeks ago www.rdforum.org: Radar - RC M vs MRCD

    You were actually in DC during that video on DC 295 and had just crossed the boundary from Maryland to DC when you saw the MRCD. By law, Maryland is only allowed to use speed cameras in construction zones and all of the units I have seen are truck-based. DC has no such restrictions and sets up those portable units wherever they want

    EDIT: Maryland is also allowed to put speed cameras in school zones, but they are limited to 0600-1800 active time

    I received a $40 ticket from what appears to be MRCD in Annapolis 3 weeks ago.
    No points/no insurance increase.....so the citation said.

    Are these MRCD citation fees based on how much over PSL you were going or are they a fixed amount regardless? Anyone have any idea?

    Fixed based on a range. A lower range it's cheaper, cross above a threshold and it goes to 100ish. Depends on where you live.

    In my case, the citation simply said "more than 12 MPH over posted limit".............

    No doubt as these become more common we'll see increasing fines/penalties. SOMEONE has to pay for us! LOL

    THIS is an awesome piece of research for Chicago........... it appears that we in the U.S. will be fighting these new menaces until adequate databases for at least the 5-8 major cities are compiled........

    Those are MRCT cameras, same units in Chicago and NYC. I did testing on them with the Pro M and included a good bit of info on them. That post is in the testing section.

    If anyone in the US is running a Pro M or RC-M I recommend using MRCT and MRCD narrow with MR Filter on High. That will pick up these MRCT cameras without issue while giving you the best filtering performance. Cameras will be detected as MRCT, but MRCD needs to be on as well.

    I did a road trip from Denver to St Louis and was in Monroe County IL south of St Louis. They had speed signs in school zones and my R3 did not make a single sound at any of them but they were working and displaying your speed accurately. Not sure if this is part of the MRCD/MRCT.
