Any idea why VDOT/the police have a camera in the medium of Saint Germian Drive? Looks like a bunch of solar panels-like something for traffic work-but there is a camera on it. It is right before Strasburg Drive and has been there forat least month. In fact there is another on on the other end of the road. I HATE being watched everytime I leave my neighborhood, What gives?

...leading to the question: what do you call the bit of grass between the sidewalk and the road? A: Depends where you grew up. How many different answers can we get here?

Another one is swt up at Olley Lane and Little River Turnpike, was wondering about it too. Prob traffic study, they already have license scanners on cop cars and cameras on major highways to track our comings and goings. How comforting right?

Winston from 1984 just called and told me to tell Amy this:

"Don't worry, they cannot steal your thoughts. Be careful, however, if you own a flat screen TV (Smart TV) made by Samsung. If you do, they listen to everything you say."

"Shhh, not in front of the TV! Samsung may be eavesdropping on you"

The people can organize and petition to have these kind of cameras removed. We are paying to have them put up .. our tax dollars, without our consent.

I requested that the stoplights timing be changed or reviewed at intersection. Three weeks later one of those cameras popped up and the lights were sync correctly.

Probably a traffic survey to determine if light or change in traffic pattern is needed.

You live on St Germain and you are worried about a camera? I guess that more of a concern than the derelicts, homeless and illegals wandering around there, Wow!
