After a series of research, meetings, and votes, the City of Albany decided to add speed cameras to its traffic enforcement efforts. But where are the speed cameras in Albany, GA? This article provides a comprehensive list and map view of where the speed cameras are and which way each one is pointed.
How does it work?
The collection of cameras are built and monitored by RedSpeed, a company that takes a revenue share of the citations issued by each municipality that uses their system. The revenue share in Albany is set at 35% to the company and 65% to the city.
Each camera outpost works by using a combination of speed monitoring equipment and video and photo cameras. If a camera determines that someone is traveling 10 miles per hour or more above the posted speed limit in an area, it will record pictures and video of the violating vehicle and its license plate. Each camera is designed to record the color, make, model, and license plate of a recorded vehicle.
After a violation is recorded, the system automatically determines the owner’s information based on the license plate. Then it sends a citation to them in the mail. Each citation can range in cost from $75 to $180.
