Cameras have become a common thing in the world today especially in the transport or rather traffic system. Traffic density and traffic patterns are the major reasons why most of these traffic cameras are made even though there could be a whole lot of other reasons some are made to see done. There are some places that are known to have a lot of infractions with time and this are the most common places where these cameras are known to be placed. It is common to find a number of traffic cameras placed in places with weather hazards, congestions and even complex insertions. Besides being fitted with internet connectivity they are known to be fitted on poles of about thirty feet tall.
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. The traffic camera will pick on any driver that tries to get through an intersection while the red light is on by taking his/her photo or just the number plate off the car involved. It will then send the picture to the functional computer system which will try to find a match. If it finds a match of the person owning the car or the face of the driver it will send a ticket directly with immediate effects while alerting the authority at the same time.
The size of the red light traffic camera is actually so small that the driver is never aware that the recording in a given intersection is actually on. Where inside on top or below the red light the camera will be there and still hard to notice. It could also be placed in similar other things just so that the driver doesn’t know that there is a camera watching them. Besides placing the camera in bushed or on tall buildings along the intersection it can also be placed just where the driver ca see it to scare their ill intentions of breaking the law.
In most traffic systems you will note that they work based on video loop triggers. 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. In case any of the vehicles pass through the traffic while the light indicates red then the camera will take a snapshot and send it to the necessary authority for action to be taken.
Different places could use the punitive traffic cameras. From these cameras motorists will have to stick by the traffic rules too.
