{{#ifeq: {{lc:{{{1|optional}}} }} | optional | <!-- The content between the second set of lines is optional to all states and territories. For this section, the laws for each state must be determined by the individual states. If no state unique page is created, the generic message will be displayed saying the laws are unknown for the state.

To have the specific camera laws appear for the state, copy the code below and place it on the state unique page. For example on the page [[STATENAME/Cameras]]) place the code:


The named parameters "speed=" and "red=" control the language around the legality of speed and red light cameras. Both parameters take the same variables and these variables can be lowercase or initial cap. Only these terms are accepted. Any other spellings or terms will result in the default "unknown" condition:

permitted, legal = Legal
prohibited, illegal = Not legal
limited = Limited laws; points to state section on camera legality page
none = No laws on the books
unknown, (empty) = Waze editors have no information

If the "limited" type is used, the default template will send readers to the
generic [[Cameras/Legality]] page. If that is not desired, The parameters
|limited-red= and |limited-speed= can be used to say or redirect those types
to a different place on the page or elsewhere. An example might be:
Alternately the term "below" could be replaced by a Wiki page or full URL link.

Some states have additional regulations or specific localities that relate to speed and red light cameras. That information should be added here, or consider adding it to the [[Cameras/Legality]] page instead.

| Not every camera-looking device at an intersection is a speed or red light camera. Generally speaking:
:* [[File:Camera2true.png|30px]][[File:Rlc_truvelo_speed_cam.jpeg|right|150px]] a '''speed camera''' takes a photograph of a vehicle when it passes by the camera at too high a speed.
:* [[File:Camera4true.png|30px]][[File:Rlc white.jpeg|right|150px]] a '''red light camera''' takes a photograph of a vehicle that enters an intersection after the light is red. In some areas, it takes the photograph when a vehicle is not clear of the intersection some period after the light turns red.

Be sure to [[Cameras|know your cameras]] before accepting new camera reports.

When adding a camera, be sure to review the [[Cameras#Camera Placement|camera placement]] recommendations.

Laws regarding speed and red light cameras vary between the states and territories, so be sure to understand the details of [[Cameras/Legality|camera legality]] in {{:USA/CommonState/AreaText|{{RootPage2}}}}.<br/>{{:USA/CommonState/Cameras/Law|law={{{speed|unknown}}}|type=speed|limited-speed={{{limited-speed|}}}}}, and {{:USA/CommonState/Cameras/Law|law={{{red|unknown}}}|type=red light|limited-red={{{limited-red|}}}}}.
}}<!-- Do not modify this code above. -->

No other camera types should be mapped in Waze.
