    The flash in daytime cannot miss one... imagine 100 lightspheres ard u triggering off @ same time...
    Driving over the 2 lines will let the computer compute the time taken by the car to drive pass the 2 lines. If the time is faster than the stated time ( time it takes at max speed limit to traval over the distance between the 2 lines ), it will fire off 2 frames. If what my friend tells me is correct, there is even a system on the "camera housing" which will show the speed at which the veh is travelling.


    I don't think so strong lah. Wait blind by the flash and kanna accident how?

    if i'm not wrong the lines is to detect whether a driver beats the red light..so crossing the 2 lines when the traffic light is red..then the camera will be fired off..

    but for those expressway speed cameras..it employs a different kind of technology..because i never see lines on the expressway..

    For red light camera, the sensors are embedded. You have to cross the lines above certain speed (iirc about 5km/h) to trigger it. Camera will be fired 2 times: once when you cross the lines, second time approximately when you pass through the junction.

    The stationary speed camera should be using radar. Mobile ones may be using laser (lidar as they call it).

    My info was from a friend, the sensors are on the expressway. After road resurfacing maybe the "lines" got covered up but the sonsors are still working. I'll check with my friend next time I see him but that what he told me last time ( he's a reservist from TP ). If he's giving me a co*k and bull story ........... I'll drive his car over the speed limit through the camera angle at the expressway

    Radar detectors have been around for a long time already... not here... in the US.

    It doesn't have to trigger because at 3km/h beating the red light, they let the cars from the other directions send your car to heaven liao

    Yes!!! I saw this happening few years back. But I think back than, the camera will only stop after you cross the sensors at the other end of the junction.

    Traffic lights "Red" for a while already
    Old man on motor bike cross the red light at slow speed.
    Traffic junction red light camera flash!!!
    Old man stop.
    Traffic junction red light camera con't to flash!!!
    Old man move backwards to the traffic junction
    Traffic junction red light camera con't to flash!!!
    All cars in all direction stop and don't dare to cross the junction.
    Traffic lights at Old man's side turn "Green"
    Traffic junction red light camera stop flashing
    No one dare to move
    Old man move off
    Everyone one follow

    This happen a few years back at the Bukit Merah Crossroad Junction if I remember correctly.

    I think they tweeted the systems already.

    you have to ask the TP for that
    that'll cost you $70 bucks for the photos in total and confirm appeal no pass unless you got very very good strings to pull or a very very very good reason.

    and no.. you don't get to keep them.

    However, from a bike forum, many said the system wasn't perfect as many times the picture can be blurred and the system "guessed" your number. If so happen your number kenna 4D you get the ticket sent to your place.

    yes, you will not detect by the camera, but you will hit by many other cars.
