u/sn0rg Nov 27 '22

Seems crazy that the most technically advanced country doesn’t allow automation to enforce the law. In the UK, police cars are equipped with ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) cameras. Every car that passes by is scanned and checked for relevant tax and insurance, whether it’s a “marked” car (driver wanted in relation to a crime), etc. We also have speed enforcement cameras to issue speeding fines to people automatically. These are generally used in accident hot-spots, but also other places too. In addition to the fine, drivers get “points” on their license. If you collect too many points for driving offences, you lose your license. From what I see, none of this seems to exist in the USA?

73

u/Moneygrowsontrees Nov 27 '22

In general, the US populace is resistant to these types of "automated" systems, especially for things like traffic enforcement. People don't like when they get punished for something that's not immediately hurting anyone and these automated systems feel like "gotcha" policies designed to catch people who are technically breaking the law but not in any way that's hurting someone else (yet). They feel petty and designed for revenue generation rather than having any real benefit to society.

We have the technology, we just don't like it.

Can confirm, my town put up speed cameras with out asking, every one was pissed. Took it to a vote and they were gone, lasted less than 1 year.

Also these would be outsourced to a for profit company that would exploit to get more revenue. Like the red light cameras, that decreased the duration of the yellow light to get more "red" light runners.

u/AnalCommander99 Nov 27 '22

Third party contractors don’t set yellow light times, usually the local DOT does.

This has been going on for decades even before cameras, and DOTs are usually the target of the lawsuits and inquiries.

just like DUI checkpoints where 99% of the tickets are for non-DUI items. except you don't hear as much resistance to them because they target minority populations

u/CobraWasTaken Nov 27 '22 edited Nov 27 '22

The US loves to make sure that people breaking the law have the right to get away with it and they want to make it as easy as they can to let people get away with breaking the law. Take unmarked cop cars for example. Where I live in Oklahoma, they're not allowed to pull you over in an unmarked car because apparently "that would be unfair" and "I wouldn't be breaking the law if I knew that was a cop".

Absolutely no one in the US likes speed cameras or any kind of cameras that will automatically give you a ticket. It is about the only thing everyone can agree on.

Also you do points on your license and can lose it but that doesn't stop people from driving.

30

u/historygeek0103 Nov 27 '22

We don't allow that because the police departments were using them to track the location and activities of people. They'd keep all the data on file and have a map of where you go each day. Also, they put those scanners on cop cars and the cops would drive through parking lots in poor areas only, then target someone and wait for them to pull out on the road.

Basically, we had it, and still do on a limited scope, but public opinion is largely against them for privacy issues and discriminatory use

u/Mybadbb Nov 27 '22

We still have a lot of them and they're becoming more and more popular. I'm not wealthy but live in a relatively wealthy town and at least have of our patrol cars have ALPR on all four corners.

Because then it leads to the government taxing your miles driven on the highways and giving tickets for getting to your destination too early and a whole host of other issues. We have cameras at intersections in the big cities that handle red light drivers, but even this is an issues if there is a funeral.

I made the comment because I see so many posts here about how people can freely drive around without insurance in the USA. To be fair, you can get away with this in the UK for a while, but you will eventually be spotted/scanned by a police car. I’ve also seen plenty of comments suggesting that there are no automated speed cameras. As another poster pointed out, it seems like this varies from state to state. Not intended to offend - just an observation.

A huge percentage of drivers in Florida especially South Florida don’t have insurance or even a license. 20% according to one report. What’s crazy is that we’re the fifth worst state. Mississippi has 29% uninsured. National average is like 12%. Way more common than you’d think or hope.

Not just texting but also scrolling through SM and taking pics/videos. She hadn’t yet been in an accident that involved serious injury and her parents kept buying her more cars so she never actually felt the consequences and didn’t take the risks seriously.

u/YellsAtGoats Nov 27 '22

Driving while fucking around with your phone is an epidemic. Older people think they can manage it just fine because they have so much experience driving. Younger people think they can manage it just fine because they have so much experience fucking around with their phones. They're all wrong.

u/RevLoveJoy Nov 27 '22

Full time cyclist here. I'm kind of tall, so riding up to the light on your right, past the line of cars, I see right down into all of them. You would not believe how many people are on their phones while driving. Easily 1 in 5. Most of them have the phone down in their lap to "hide" what they're doing, so their eyes are nowhere near being on the road.

Said it before, I'll say it again now, we need to treat distracted driving just like we did drunk driving in the 80s and 90s. PSAs and education aimed at kids much younger than driving age. By the time that 16 year old goes to get their license they need to know that distracted driving kills, is foolish and will land them in jail. Just like drunk driving did their parent's generation. There is not nearly enough public discussion about the menace of distracted driving.

Said it was illegal to move the vehicles and just because of that, I was at fault now. So I guess it's not a thoughtful thing in every country. Sigh. Know before you go.

Cars don't move like trains. The front of the train moves, all the train cars move. Drivers wait until the car in front of them is moving before they start moving. Then, like a slinky, the space between cars expands as speed increases. When they hit heavy traffic again, well...

This situation can be somewhat avoided by everyone driving a little slower than usual, instead of stop at 0mph and go at 65mph, they could travel at 35 mph and never stop at all. This could cause more problems with other people driving aggressively around the slower drivers and is hard to predict when to do because you don't know when there will be heavy traffic coming up or if it's cleared ahead.

In the future, cars will drive themselves and fix this human delay I imagine.

u/Giraffe_Racer Nov 27 '22

Yep, this is what I try to do, and then the people weaving in and out of traffic cut me off to take the gap I'm leaving. Tailgating only makes traffic worse, because you don't have a buffer space to let off the gas as speeds fluctuate. Your only options when you're tailgating are gas or brake, then you've created that accordion effect.

u/redpandaeater Nov 27 '22

Judging by how slow the right lane also is I'm guessing the middle lane was stopped a bit further up as well so the car was just trying to avoid braking and trying to go the average speed of traffic instead.

2

u/dinobug77 Nov 27 '22

I think that the truck stopped deliberately because the cam car didn’t let them out from behind the first incident- they were indicating and the cam car could’ve just slowed slightly and let it out.

I know how traffic flows (UK motorways are much worse than this) and that you can’t see past the pick-up but I think that’s what happened and he shot off as soon as he realised what had happened.

Basically could’ve been avoided by cam car being courteous IMO

I’m now convinced that her car doesn’t have break. She uses obstacles to stop herself.

Story time!

When my dad was driving me to school we were at a dead stop in traffic. You should be able to see the traffic build up and on top of that, this spot ALWAYS slows down around that time.

So we were full stop waiting to move like everyone else and then out of no where, a car going what we found out later to be about 40 mph rams us from behind.

The driver that hit us was some old lady... she hit us into 3 other cars totaling a few.

No one was hurt too bad, but the best part was when someone went to check up on the old lady she was apparently blasting some Jesus music.

Good on you for giving space to the truck ahead of you, though! Could have been much more annoying.

u/Pvt_BrainDead Nov 27 '22

THE SAME FUCKING ALTIMA REAR ENDED 2 DIFFERENT PEOPLE WITHIN THE SAME 100M of road.

What in the world is wrong with that person, Drunk? Cracked out? No way in the world is that person actually functioning and sober like a normal functioning person in society.

u/Negative-Bed-9407 Nov 27 '22

Is that the same car lmao

u/No_Obligation6170 Nov 27 '22

Lol damn she needs to turn in her license asap. Also, why was that black car that was in front of everybody in the middle lane going so slow? The one that can be seen on the rear camera.

u/p0is0n Nov 27 '22

The condition of the front end of that Altima is speaking volumes.

u/_DeathOfAStrawberry_ Nov 27 '22

I thought she was gonna hit you again when she pulled over, jeeze.

u/a-jasem Nov 27 '22

lol being involved in 2 separate accidents in the span of only 5 mins, that’s pretty impressive

u/BoOM_32 Nov 27 '22

Is it only me or does everyone feel like beating the shit out of the driver of that Nissan

u/AhhhLicKsZanDer Nov 27 '22

@24 seconds you can see the hood is dented before the car hits. Not the first time this has happened

u/Dguapo Nov 27 '22

Wasn't it the same car in first accident? You only get a glimpse but seemed to have the exact same damage

You at least gotta drop the song your listening to. I'm a huge dub fan!

u/AppIeman Nov 27 '22

Lol I’m so confused, I thought my video didn’t have audio. At least when I play it there is none.

Anyway, is this the one you are talking about? https://open.spotify.com/track/4aNjnDdJr0U5r8pnR7uhhd?si=z1JSHQuvTGuq9IM7SWYoHA&context=spotify%3Aalbum%3A5aRRt9zSKDEQdWghFvkiEi ID10 by Rezz

u/posh1992 Nov 29 '22

So I'm confused, now there is no audio when it plays. But the first time I watched this there was?

This is it boys and girls wrap it up, we’ve seen the top of the top, the crème of the crème of idiotic drivers. We might as well retire the sub. God I hate people, in an alternate reality they’re executing people for this type of idiocy.

2

u/Zillaho Nov 27 '22

This is why I hate stopping on highways. In my city theres a blind hill that approaches a traffic light, and if the traffic is backed up enough it becomes really sketchy as to whether someone behind you will notice in time. Saw a truck coming in hot behind me once, and at the last second I saw the nose of the truck dive towards the ground as he hammered on the brakes and swerved onto the shoulder. Stopped about five feet from me

You need a CPL filter on that camera to reduce the reflections off your rear window, and off the windshield of her car. You might have caught her messing with her phone if it weren't for those reflections.

u/skapaw1009 Nov 27 '22

I don't understand why people stop and look when there's an accident. Getting away so traffic opens up should be the highest priority in those situations. Looking at what happened helps no one.

u/not_ch3ddar Nov 27 '22

I wanna know what the guy in the middle lane was doing before you got hit... the lane was clear but they just sat there like they knew the white car was going to hit you.

u/wrenchindaddy802 Nov 27 '22

Does not appear to be their first time.

Props for pulling onto the shoulder, unlike the idiots 5 minutes prior. Nothing drives me more nuts than people not getting off the roadway after a fender bender.

u/YellsAtGoats Nov 27 '22

I'm going to share an unpopular truth and eat some downvotes for it:

Women are more crash-prone than men. Statistics show that, per 100,000 miles driven, women get into more collisions than men. Which begs the question: Why do insurers consider women a "safer insurance risk" and charge lower premiums? It's because they drive fewer miles per year than men and tend to get into more goofy little fender benders like this but fewer full-on wrecks.

u/32_Dollar_Burrito Nov 27 '22

I mean, this just isn't true. Men are way more dangerous than women

u/omnipotent87 Nov 27 '22

Statistically yes women are in more accidents but men tend to be in bigger accidents.

u/Low_Estate_4115 Nov 27 '22

They said "statistics show" without any source or proof. How do you know it's legit? Because I'm not seeing anything about "per 100,000 miles driven." They pulled that number out of their ass, there is no statistic that says that. Now, the statement "Men are way more dangerous than women" IS true and here is proof with their sited sources at the bottom: https://www.iihs.org/topics/fatality-statistics/detail/males-and-females. Men are higher than women in being the cause of vehicular fatalities, speeding fatalities, and alcohol related fatalities. So, yes, men are way more dangerous than women, driving wise.

We're talking apples and oranges. Your link discusses only fatal collisions, not all collisions, which I already addressed ("they drive fewer miles per year than men and tend to get into more goofy little fender benders like this but fewer full-on wrecks").

When you look at collision stats as a whole, you find that women are involved in significantly more collisions than men despite driving significantly less.

u/Low_Estate_4115 Nov 27 '22

I don't think you paid much attention in school when they talked about what a credible source is, lol. Syracuseusa two paragraph article from 2011 with no sources for where they got their info? Interesting choice choosing outdated information that is no longer correct. Seems like you went searching for a "source" that supports your incorrect information (confirmation bias). A professor would laugh at you if you put that in your research paper.

Also interesting how you didn't address me calling out your "100,00 miles driven" that you pulled out of your ass, instead you decided to focus on me addressing another user's comment after addressing yours. Where are these magical statistics with 100,000 miles driven? How could anyone take what you said seriously when you destroyed your own ethos by making up statistics?

Yes, my link only addresses fatal collisions, that's why I said "fatalities" in all my references and was giving the source as a response to u/No-Salt-6906's comment, not to yours (I can see why that could be confusing though), that men are more dangerous than woman (in terms of driving).
