Hello,

First of all I would like to apologise if this is posted in the wrong place. I looked through all the areas and this seemed like the best place to post.

I drove by one of these this morning and I was wondering if it is a speed camera.
Camera?

I know what the sign says, however it had horizontal calibration lines after it.

Thank you for taking the time to read the post.

Thank you for your reply.

From digging online I found that these are weather cameras, however why would they have the calibration lines on the road.

Furthermore, there was a speed camera sign before it (a while back I admit) and ym radar detector started beeping when i got near it.

A weather station may have radar for cloud or prescipitation detection.

Should really be in tech discussion of enforcement devices I think.

Maybe there was once a speed camera at that location, and they have just used the same pole/site (think power).
