So the intersections are alive and well as well!  ;)  Looking forward to traveling around the state visiting places like Newcastle. Is there another place besides this forum that FSW folks chat?

Come visit us in Sundance.

Actually, that IS a CCTV camera and can be used for motion detection.

Since there is only one, that doesn't seem likely. I've been told, by someone I trust, that it is NOT a camera. And that is quite an unlikely place for one anyway. Near the courthouse and post office would make more sense.

Probably wise to assume there are some here somewhere, of course, but I'm not going to worry about it.
It's not that people are dumber, it's that stupidity used to be more painful.

That is the same system we had in Aurora and are popping up all over.  That is a CCTV capable camera.

Maybe, at some point. If it is a camera, I can't imagine who's watching the pictures. Would be as boring as watching grass grow.

They are not meant to only be watched by a person, they are always being watched by a computer and video is archived.

Have it your way. :)  I simply fail to see any point to it here. There's nothing to watch. :)

I know what your saying, however, it's part of an automated tracking grid that records and archives movement of cars based on plate number.

Maybe somebody harvested some DHS grant money, and channelled it to his relative in the road maintenance business.

That would be quite possible. The silly "DHS" guy in the dusty blue pickup truck has to be given something to do, after all.

When I lived in NV the local sheriff bragged about his car mounted camera and fancy software. He said he he could simply park along the highway or near the entrance to WalMart and the camera would capture all the license plate numbers and compare them to a database of warrants and suspects. This took seconds. Then he could take action. Nice.

So there IS a threat to these cameras. They can be used to prove where people have gone and exactly when.
Doesn't matter if it's in Newcastle or the London subway.

We have one here in Pike County, IL.  It is for signaling purposes only and is not tasked to take photos...

Now I know why people leave their license plates caked with mud around here...

As if there was really much choice in the matter here...  >:D  Though I do get out and wipe off the headlights from time to time... :)
