L5 > L2 Camera ?

Postby CrimsonZA » Sat Jan 06, 2018 2:48 pm

There's a camera here that's marked as a red light camera, however it seems that it could just be a CCTV camera. Requesting level 5 to level 2

I haven't been editing for a while but I can't edit this camera, I'm assuming it's locked.

I've been going past this camera this whole week and it's not actually there anymore, the user who mentioned prior noted this even earlier, there's only a little dish left. What's the protocol in this case?

Hello CrimsonZA

Certainly looks like a security style camera, as can be seen in the SV, but since that object has been on the map since 2012 ... Ah I see the reporter stated there used to be a RLC in that location long ago, so that explains that SV image.

As per this article, https://citizen.co.za/news/south-africa ... ching-you/ JMPD are still watching, so this may still be a RLC, just not a speed camera, which explains the speed setting of 0. It is pointing direct towards the intersection, to catch the rear number plate of jumpers.

Only editors equal or above the rank of the approving editor can remove it in the editor:

After all that waffle, I say the camera must stay, as it performs the same function. Anyone keen to jump the red light a few times to see if this theory is correct?
