Question Radar and Photo Radar

If I remember right, some time last year the news said that police would stop using photo radar. But yesterday I just realized that there's a sign on Oak Bridge say "Photo radar in effect".

Did they really stop using photo radar?

Also, often on news radio, the traffic report say "there a radar on xxx street.....", what kind of radar are they talking about?

I think they just left the signs up. When they say "radar" on the radio, it just means there's a speed trap somewhere. I haven't seen cops using radar in a long time; i bet it's all laser readings they take now.

they stop using photo radar, unless you mean the red light cameras, which, from what I heard, can take your pic if you speed by one. when the radio saids radar, they mean the old style radar traps, with a cop and a radar gun.

do they really say "photo" radar in effect?

i never really like the fact that they took all the photo radars away,
i knew back then that eventually that's gonna mean more police catchig speeders on the roads giving harsher tickets plus points taken off....
