but for those expressway speed cameras..it employs a different kind of technology..because i never see lines on the expressway..
yes there are.. not exactly at the cam but about 10-15m ahead. check the floor more carefully

Check how this guy fooled the speed camera at Arizona, cool.

regarding the 2 sensor at the red light junction, it theory is simple. They need to know whether a car passed by the stop line.

using 1 sensor only:
if a car touches the sensor (on) and reverses (off) it's the same if the car passes the sensor (on) and cross the line (sensor off). so using only 1 sensor isn't accurate. We can't really tell the diff if the car passed the red line or reversed off the sensor.

using 2 sensor:
--> direction of travel,
(sensor 1) (sensor 2) on road

when a car passes thru the sensors, they get activated in the following sequence, 1:On 2:On 1:Off 2:Off, once this combination is satisfied, it means a car has passed the stop line in the FORWARD direction. If a car stops over the sensors, and reverses, it registers as 1:On 2:On 2:Off 1:Off
the speed is not calculated by the sensors on the road.

well, you can change your car plate to "1".

let see what will happen.

hmmz for expressway speed cameras... is it true that theres a 10km/h buffer? Say if the road speed limit is 90km/h, is it "safe" to travel at 90km/h ?

well..i a bit kiasi.. always drop to 70km/h when i pass the cte speed camera while i see the other cars speed by ... almost road-hogging liao.. haha

Ha! you are one of those drivers that I always cursed at when I am behind them.

You will probably have a buffer with your speedo. Car speedo tends to overestimate your speed by 3-5km/h. I think the TP will not book you for doing 93km/h with speed limit of 90km/h.

I usually pass the cameras at 90-95km/h. (for 90km/h speed limit) So far, no tickets...

Top Gear make a test to see at what speed the camera will be failure to shoot you.Speed is 180MPH or so you will be "ghost".Good radar detector is Valentie V1 according to radar detector user.

.

just tot maybe can try during midnight when there isn't any cars..its stupid to wait at traffic light for it to turn green during midnight when you are the only car around..

but i think yanyewkay has made a valid explaination on how the sensors work..

9. ## Re: How does traffic police snap speeders?

wow ... i thought the use some kind of radar like camera?

I hope then you are not on the outermost lane. Travel at 70km/hr, can use inner lane...

I think its more like +10km/h.. anyways like i said b4, i drove pass the one at NUS at over 100 but nothing happened mayb thats a decoy camera

haha..Scaglietti and blive.. .. i got change lane one la.. dont change also cannot.. the cars behind will stick too close and highbeam if i drive at 70 on outer lane...

Doppler radar also has a tolerance. So when they book you they will want to be sure that you are above the limits. I think the accuracy is +/- 5km/h. So I think they won't set the limit to exactly 90km/h. Think should have some allowance..

so anyone want to risk @ 300km/h?

You need the \$\$\$ to get a car that can do 300km/h first.

Using LIDAR, or Light-Imaging Detection and Ranging. Basically it measures calculates speed by bouncing pulses of laser beams, then measuring the properties of the returned beam.

The flash in daytime cannot miss one... imagine 100 lightspheres ard u triggering off @ same time...

Just a question that I have been wondering...

Why riding a bicycle and beat the red light does not trigger the camera??

Not heavy enough. The lines in the ground work by pressure altering the electrical properties of a cable. When enough weight is on it, i.e a car, bus, or truck, it will alter the electrical properties enough that the sensor picks up the change. Lighter objects like people, dogs, cats, bicycles, they won't push down with enough force.
