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 is some way they can ignore that though, I don't know.
Interesting.They are now operating year round including holidays - M-F from 6am-10pm. Also, they expanded from 750 and will have approx 2000 by the end of 2021.

I myself am a former NY now living the retirement life in FL but travel back and forth the speed cameras are crazy now but also added to my decision of buying the Redline 360c which seems to be out performing my R7 with the speed cameras in NY now with the new update to the R7 I'm going to see how it compares to my Redline 360c I've got to the point now when in NY I just switch my back plate to a Vanity Plate I had made they don't look at your plates no more when they write you a parking ticket they just scan print and go so just what I do when I'm in NY got tired of the ticketsAs a lifelong Staten Islander, and very near future ex-Staten Islander and ex-New Yorker, I can personally attest to the prevalence of these dastardly devices. They are popping up everywhere and they are adding them daily. I'll drive a route one week and see one and the next week there are three. You drive past one and two traffic lights and 300 yards later there's another one. You pass one just prior to an intersection turn the corner and there's another just prior to the next light not 100 yards away. Oh, and they're operable from 6am to 10 every weekday including holidays and when school is out. "It's for school safety." Yeah, right! Fortunately they're usually easy to spot if you're paying attention, and they're well marked in waze and the escort live databases. I also find that the Escort Redline 360c does a pretty good job of catching the signal from MRCD/MRCT, not great but good enough. Remember folks, you get what you vote for. Think about it. Goodbye NY, goodbye!
I don't know a lot about the tech, but,
I don't usually drive very fast on highways so I could never justify the cost of a radar/laser detector, but don't those work by jamming the LEOs momentarily so the LEO can't measure?
Does the same tech work for these stupid stationary cameras? If so, maybe I'd have reason to invest in one.
I just switch my back plate to a Vanity Plate I had made they don't look at your plates no more when they write you a parking ticket they just scan print and go so just what I do when I'm in NY got tired of the tickets
