The legality of photo/video enforcement of traffic laws varies from state to state and between the various jurisdictions inside a state depending on how the laws are written. Below is a list of the laws by state. '''DISCLAIMER:''' We are not attorneys and are not responsible for mistakes and/or outdated information. The most current information has been found on [http://www.iihs.org/iihs/topics/laws/automated_enforcement/enforcementtable?topicName=Red%20light%20running#tableData IIHS] and [http://www.ghsa.org/html/stateinfo/laws/auto_enforce.html GSHA].
Not all camera looking devices at intersections are speed or red light cameras. Review the article on [[cameras]] before adding them to the map.
