The modern day transport system is fitted with a lot of traffic cameras than you could ever imagine. These cameras are made to serve different purposes based on the location but a whole lot of them are made to ensure that traffic patterns and density are watched over. Some cameras are placed where traffic infractions are known to mostly occur just so that they can capture and record incidents for future detail purposes. Roads or basically places with terrible congestions, hazards leading from weather and complex insertions are known to be fitted with traffic cameras. The height they commonly reside in could be up to thirty feet and some of them are fitted with internet connectivity.
In more developed countries you will find the red light traffic camera fitted in the roads especially where drivers are supposed to drive at a lower speed due to a number of stipulated reasons. Most of the red light traffic cameras are fitted to get hold of the drivers who are fond of ignoring traffic laws. When the red light of the traffic system is on all the cars that will go through will have either a photo of the driver taken or just the number plate. To find a match the relevant picture will be sent to the necessary computer system. While alerting the necessary authority the person involved either being the owner of the car or the person driving the car will be charged immediately.
Due to the small size of the cameras there is no way the driver could ever be able to know that a particular intersection there is a camera actually watching over him/her. It can be fitted inside the traffic light or it could be placed just below it. There are so many things that the camera could be placed on just to make sure that the driver doesn’t notice it. Differently from those that are placed even on opposite buildings or bush some cameras are placed where the driver can clearly see so that they just have to follow the laws as they are.
Video loop triggers are the most common in the modern day. The system is made in such a way that it record all the happenings in live view to the systems operator of the intersection of the specific road. When a vehicle goes through the intersection in question while the red light is still on then they are bound to face the authority which will receive the information and act on it with immediate effects.
Different places could use the punitive traffic cameras. From these cameras motorists will have to stick by the traffic rules too.
