cameras???

hey guys i was just curious if at mclaughlin and bancroft if it is radar enforced or where it is radar enforced

today i was ripping my car then did not have enough time to stop so i ended up going through a full red

and on my way back i looked and saw very small black camera shaped things but no signs that said radar enforced and i noticed while driving home a lot of the lights have these little things on top and on the poles i was just curious are they radars or just some type of sensors

Those are sensors, not camera's, i thought they were cameras also, if they were cameras then i'd be in jail by now.

An easy way to tell if they are cameras- if there is a HUGE light for a flash. All red light cameras I have seen up in Toronto are in a huge box at the side of the road and have a big ass flash light.

I know because I was on the other side of the intersection when some dude ran a red, and the camera blinded me.

Black things on top of traffic lights are sensors to detect oncomming firetrucks/ambulance. Notice how all firetrucks have a large strobe top center on the roof. Also, if a firetruck is approaching, all the lights will turn red- unless the green is in the direction the truck is going, then it will stay green.
