Speed cameras


Any photo may be enlarged by clicking on it.


This device clocked a skateboarder at 12 m.p.h.  The cameras are about 400 feet north of this sign.


Both northbound and southbound devices are attached to this pole.  At top are the lights.
The camera lens in this photo seems to be aimed at the rear of northbound cars.  Presumably, the boxes are merely controls and transmission devices.  Or is downloading done physically by an employee visiting each camera?  Near the lower box can be seen a flat pad, one in each direction. Might this register an approaching car and ready the camera, or is it the radar capturing the speed of the car that has just passed?  I could not determine the aim of these pads.
