Speed Cameras are NOT CURRENTLY LEGAL in the State of North Carolina.
Red Light Cameras
Red light Cameras are legal only in specific jurisdictions.
There are also cameras mounted on traffic signals that are used as part of the signal control. These compare sequential images of the intersection approach to determine if there is a vehicle (car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, etc) waiting and will trigger the sequence. These devices CAN NOT issue tickets.
There are traditional traffic monitoring cameras covering most of the major highways in the state. These send live video to NC DOT & local media and serve ONLY as a traffic monitoring system.
