city limits soon.
As if they were slack now LOL
My in laws live there and I respect those guys they don't play!!!!
accidents and injury accidents.
Proving again, it's all about the revenue, not safety.

basically people were more prone to "freaking out" when they knew there was a chance the cameras were being employed. Their erratic behavior, stopping hard when it wasn't safe, etc, caused more accidents than would otherwise have been caused by failing to yield.
I don't have any stats in front of me, but think back to the last 10 accidents you've encountered. How many of those were the result of someone blowing through a red light? My answer = 0.

some idiot ran a light @ glenridge and clipped my S4.
I got it fixed and sold it but there are idiots who blow lights anyway so camera or not they still do it.
And the fool got out and claimed I ran it but the old guy behind him stayed and is my witness in court this month that he ran it not me.
Said I just decided to run the red light while he had the green turn arrow from the opposite direction.
I say again he was a idiot and cost me $1,500 of my money IDIOT LIAR he was and will get burnt for it to :)
And yes the original buyer was made aware and givin the body shop repair order that said NO Frame or Alignment damage occured during that collision.
I would have walked away from the deal if it had beemn me and bought another IMO.

I am going to purchase a LE-30 but not sure on the V1, but obviously, I need both.
Thanks for the heads up - duluth is not the place to play.

Their PD is a hard-core revenu generation machine for the city. Now they've got one more way of milking the passing motorists. At least it is illegal under GA law to adjust the duration of yellow when the traffic cameras are employed - but light timing in that intersection was already fvcked up before they put the camera up.

I'm still waiting for my LE-30 to save me. It hasn't gone off yet, except for the occasional false alarm. Lidatek replaced one of the transponders, but no "kill stories" yet.

I've never seen a department patrol a 2 mile stretch of highway as aggressively as Doraville does. It's like a mini police state over there. :)

been living in Fulton Co for over 40 years now and just assume Atlanta/Fulton
too much space and too little cops
just look how long it took police to respond to the time 3 kids carjacked me and got away clean.
assbackwards I know
