Speed Cameras

Heads up guys - this article was in the 6/23 edition of the Times but I didn't catch it until today.

Executive summary: NY State legislature gave the city the nod to install speed cameras "near" schools. The current plan is a 5-year pilot program to install 20 speed cameras near schools. If you get nabbed, it's a $50 fine.

Link to article:
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/23/ny...d-cameras.html

No word yet on the exact locations of the cameras. Perhaps this should be the subject of the Tag-O-Rama until we find them all?

You can't spit in NYC without hitting some kind of school, so I'm sure these cameras will be pretty much everywhere with vague language like 'near schools'.

Thanks for posting that. I'll mention that NYC also has a law which says that if your exhaust is plainly audible for 200' you are in violation.

But I've never heard of it being enforced.

YMMV.

EDIT: Might as well post the law...

New York City Administrative Code(NEW)

24-236 Motor vehicles. (a) Motor vehicles, other than motorcycles,
with a maximum gross weight of 10,000 lbs. or less. No person shall
cause or permit any motor vehicle, other than a motorcycle, with a
maximum gross weight of 10,000 lbs. or less to operate on a public
right-of-way where the muffler or exhaust generates a sound that is
plainly audible to another individual at a distance of 150 feet or more
from the motor vehicle.
(b) Motorcycles. No person shall cause or permit any motorcycle to
operate on a public right-of-way where the muffler or exhaust generates
a sound that is plainly audible to another individual at a distance of
200 feet or more from the motorcycle.

I've asked over on the LA threads but want to ask here as well. Has anybody went through the process of registering your NY bikes in CA? I know CA is stricter so what needs to be done to my stock bikes, dl650 and dr350se? I'm surfing craigslists, but generally are the price of bikes different over there? Better/worse? I'm wondering if I should sell here if transfer is a problem or if resale values are better.

Thanks...

The sooner they start enforcing the speed limit, the sooner we repeal the speed limit laws.

Also, this:

IF the speed limit was enforced in NYC.. REALLY enforced... I'd give it about two weeks before City Hall and the DOT were surrounded by people with pitchforks and torches.

Can you imagine enforcing the 40 mph speed limit on the entire length of the FDR? Or, 45 mph on the LIE?

I thought it was 35 in a few places. Good luck with that, too.

I derive much amusement from watching the effectiveness of the speed cameras in South Korea. Everyone has a GPS receiver on the vehicles, even little 50cc scooters and a few bicycles. Most are programmed with the speed limits and locations of cameras. They flash red if you're approaching a camera too fast. Results is waves of slow-downs right around the camera and as soon as folks are past it, it's back to pedal to the metal.

My absolute favorite place to watch this is on the highway from Seoul to Incheon. Long, straight and well protected from livestock, so a great place to let your Lambo stretch is legs. I'll see someone doing upwards of 150 MPH, then see smoke pouring from the tires half a mile before a camera, then hear the engine scream back to redline a couple of seconds later.

Yeah, big safety improvement there.

There's also this, I have a feeling they're going to be very popular. They also make them for motorcycles....... http://shopping.photomaskcover.com/p...-plate-blocker

If the city's gonna install speed cameras, how about on the East River bridges? How many of you obey the 30mph speed limit, especially early morning when no one else is on the bridge? That'd be a quick way to raise some revenue.

I might be in the minority here and if I ever get a ticket from one I will be pissed. But I do not think the cameras are a bad thing. I see how stupid people drive by me school during arrival and dismissal. Where my school is there is no speeding, but stupid u-turns, rushing around double parked cars, etc.
But if they keep the rules down to school zones I have zero problem with it. Does anybody know what the cushion you will get with them?

In other states the cushion is between 5 and 10 mph (though I have heard some states are 10+). Honestly, it seems like the traffic cops that are out and about should just be writing tickets for wreckless/aggressive driving. That's the most dangerous thing I've seen in the city. Most people drive a little bit fast, but there are some absolutely crazy fuckers that should be given crazy tickets to match their driving. That would help.
