OP, I noticed them too. They suddenly started popping up around town out of the blue. Need to post better pictures though. Your pictures aren't really showing the short little stubby antennas attached. Never seen anything like it before. What are the antennas for? I put two and two together and surmised that it may simply be some form of wireless technology to control street lights and motorist alert signs, etc. I think these strange looking mysterious antennas are also attached to the motorist signs you see on the side of the road that are there to alert drivers to upcoming traffic delays and bridge openings, so I'm thinking it's merely a high tech way for them to wirelessly transmit messages to the signs for motorists to read while they are driving. And the other ones at street corners are to control traffic lights for emergency vehicles.

The ones in the pics are on city streets. That's where they all are. They very well could be DOT cameras, however for one I've never seen any paperwork with funding for this. And two this is the only city that has installed this system.

So I'm a little skeptical of DOT cameras, considering that, and on the case of light changers, it could be possible?

Yeah, as far as I know most of the I-64#s are covered with public feed cameras. The location of the camera in question is at the intersection of Taylor Road and Western Branch Blvd. Thanks!

I'm onto this topic a bit late, but here is what you have been seeing in Chesapeake. (Same brand, same system, etc.)

imagesensingca.com...

In the past year, the proliferation of these scanners throughout Chesapeake has increased exponentially. The "explanation" for their presence is benign, but their capabilities border on what might reasonably be considered intrusive.

You mention no record of related city council notes, and I admit I was unable to find anything either. DHS, perhaps?

"If not already, I'm sure pretty soon they'll all probably be tied into the fusion centers to track everyones movements with license plate reading software. "

Many cruisers have been equipped with the LP scanners, and we have them installed on every on/off ramp in the area. For good or ill, the time of trees silently falling in the forest is quickly coming to an end.
