    Select NYC streets getting lower speed limits

    Emperor (DeBlasio) thus decrees it. Budget deficits, ya know? The downward spiral of normal life continues here... Congrats to those who can "Escape From New York" /Snake

    Route 16 New Speed Record

    Was thinking the same.. But I'd imagine his driving "privileges" are toast for 5 years.

    Waze - no camera alerts (audio) unless "engaged" in a route?

    I agree with this on so many levels

    Waze - no camera alerts (audio) unless "engaged" in a route?

    Updating this: Seems that *sometimes* it does alert, and sometimes it does not. The inconsistency is bad.,

    Waze - no camera alerts (audio) unless "engaged" in a route?

    Definitely checked. It *does* alert me when I am engaged withing a "trip". Just not when it's "idle" Alerts for Speed Cams are both checked, and "Area" is "all", as opposed to "On route only"

    Waze - no camera alerts (audio) unless "engaged" in a route?

    I was traveling around town recently, Waze on, but no destination. I got caught by TWO speed cameras and Waze did NOT sound any audio alert upon approach of these cameras, despite being visually on the map. After the second time I was able to circle back around slowly to see if I'd simply...

    NYC picks your pocket 16 hrs a day, now they want to do it 24/7

    I'm surprised this hasn't been happening en masse here yet. IIRC, years ago, when they rolled this out in Maryland, people were putting 22 rounds through some of these things.. They then set up surveillance cameras to watch the pick-pocket-cameras..

    NYC picks your pocket 16 hrs a day, now they want to do it 24/7

    Disgraceful. All the decent hard working people will leave. Welcome to Detroit #2 in short order.

    Waze doesn't always alert me when there's a speed camera, even though it's on the map. I don't know why it does that- it should ALWAYS give an audio.banner, alert but it sometimes it just doesn't Like when there's one speed camera followed half a block away by ANOTHER speed camera.

    Providence RI turns speed cams back on today

    Big Bro just can't resist the easy fleece of their own constituents.

    Staten Is NY Massive Proliferation of Speed Cams

    It's not just Mayor-- But the Councilmen and State Assemblymen that rubber-stamped this fleecing of the the NY constituency, some probably getting favors or kickbacks.. THEY need to be voted out as well.

    Vision Zero. i.e., total lack of vision.

    Staten Is NY Massive Proliferation of Speed Cams

    I don't know a lot about the tech, but, 1) Do none of the "crude" plate covers work anymore? Like Invisi-shield, TollFree Protector, etc.? (putting aside the issue of getting stopped by a LEO, etc) 2) I don't usually drive very fast on highways so I could never justify the cost of a...

    Staten Is NY Massive Proliferation of Speed Cams

    ... just to add )since the system won't let me edit again), I do realize the law I posted does not seem to preclude "non-school" days, despite my anecdote about the media releases during Corona by the City..

    Staten Is NY Massive Proliferation of Speed Cams

    Interesting. AFAICT, this is the most current law in effect, and I see nothing even proposed which (as the article claims) would allow an increase to 2000 cameras, or anything other than the 750 we have now...

    Staten Is NY Massive Proliferation of Speed Cams

    This is happening all over the City. We talked about it in the other thread. City exploded from 150 cameras to 750 allowable now. Fleece the citizens, because, they can. My understanding was that they are NOT in effect on holidays (i.e, when the school is closed) Maybe the serving of meals...

    NY Operation Hardhat

    The MTA *still* has MANNED token booths OVERNIGHT, from 1AM - 5AM when there is NO train service. Literally paid to sleep. ONLY NYC could have this level of mismanagement.

    MRCT/MRCD units in NY State north of NYC and LI?

    I don't think there are any in LI any longer. Nassau Cty had a pilot program but the citizenry rightly rebelled and the officials reneged and removed them after only 6 months IIRC. And their system while still egregiously unconstitutional, had FLASHING lights alerting you not only that there...

    Thanks for that. I only read a little so far: "..within no more than [one hundred forty] seven hundred fifty school speed.." They're absolutely ****ing disgusting straight up thieves. I can't wait to leave this shithole forever. 1597436993 @V1Jake Ave V bet e 21st St / Ocean Ave, headed...
