Heads up and slow down.
They are installing speed cameras,on Clinton hwy,
at Merchants.
I do not like this stuff.
I really do not like private companies,doing "Gov" work.

I wonder if would be illegal to have Lidar" noise" makers.
The cameras are not owned by the government,so the law,that says no interference of the gov.,would not apply.

Are they speed cameras or are they the new red light cameras that they are replacing? A new company out bid the first company, so I read somewhere that they are in the process of having to replace the other company's cameras. I don't like it either, red light or speed cameras.

all they're doing is replacing the red light cameras.
obey the traffic laws, and ya got nothing to worry about.

although they are using speed cameras in morristown !!

they need those around here in some of the 30mph residential areas that people use for high speed cut thru's.

OH OK.
The left turn light there,has different timing speeds.
You would think that rush hour would have a longer left turn,but is/was about a second shorter.

I have no argument that many people in Knoxville drive crazy.
I miss my pick-up.
I could drop a gear,and the iron bumper,would convince tail-gaiters to back off.
VW Jetta's dont have that ability.

A traffic department at KPD would be good.
Too bad those red light cameras do not fund such a force

I do obey the laws. My grown children tell me I'm going to get a ticket someday for going too slow. You see, I drive the speed limit. I don't "go with the flow" as they say. The reason I hate those red light cameras is,the people behind me when I stop at one aren't paying attention that I am stopping, and I have had some close calls with almost being rear ended. I agree about the 30mph residential areas. My mother's subdivision several years ago installed speed bumps on two of the main roads, so the speedsters now cut thru her road to get around the bumps and out of the subdivision. I wish they would install them on her road.

i've found you can sucker some folks real good as you're approaching intersections where you know the cameras are.

just deliberately drive at the posted limit when you know they're ahead.(the cameras)
especially if it's an intersection you're familiar w/ the timing and you see it's been green for you and you'll more than likely not make the light.
most who are following too closely will get annoyed and pass.
usually speeding up faster than the limit.

if the timing is right then they'll cruise the light and you'll get the satisfaction of seeing the strobe go off as they get popped.
(on the last light on clinton hwy. right before 640, it's worked twice !!)
or else they jamb the brakes, stop, and you just ease up next to them, look over and grin.

I do remember the ticket I had(left turn on pink).
It did state the speed I was going(25mph).
I am sure,if they want,they could be used as speed ticket cameras.
