Camera - Bridge st and Loftus st Sydney

Postby g-boaf » Tue Feb 12, 2013 3:44 pm

Watch out for the camera outside Education building on Bridge Street Sydney near Loftus street, pointed at the intersection.

Looks like it might be aimed at getting cyclists going through the red light. It wasn't there this morning and isn't a fixed camera either. I did get some photos of it, will put them online tonight so you know what to look for.

Just wary it might be from one of the terrible tabloid TV twins or Scruby...

I could have said nothing at all.

Thanks - I will make a diversion through that intersection on my way home, but will be on my best behaviour

edit: nothing there when I went home - must have got their shots & moved on

It could be used for anything. Most likely it is a developer who wants a traffic signal count at the intersection, a consultant who wants to know how the intersection works or even auditing the facility for cyclists such as the number of cyclists using the route. I recommend that everyone just keeps doing what they are doing. This will mean that the date is most accurate of the current operation of the site.

I can pretty much guarantee that it would be used by the Herald Sun.

Or maybe someone is planning a stunt like this one (Melbourne story)

[edit] "Here in Sydney......." so it turns out the camera was placed at a Sydney crossing!

:| :roll:


God I wish they'd do the same sort of story for..... drivers squeezing the red late..... overtaking over double-lines, anywhere......... mobile phone use and texting ........ train travellers evading fares....... any smoker lighting up on trains :roll:

Dumb fools break the law, whatever their transport mode.

While the things you identify are certainly possiblities, I would expect that to have any statistical significance any such survey would need to run for more than an hour or so on one day.

They are for traffic counts, or that is what the sticker says on the box.
