    I have those in igo (poiplaza speedcams) as trafficlights cameras, and i think should be correct, since is difficult to overspeed in that place but i didn't check on site.

    korin, I will say the truth about poiplaza:
    This database is made by users and some forums.....
    So, under this view it will be useful to have files from poiplaza!

    But, don't forget that this database is old, they don't update point of speedcam....so, BE CAREFULL.

    I will say:
    PoiPlaza helps me in Romania while driving, and thus because most of speedcam comes from Romanian forums, which are the best forums from my point of view!

    On the other hand, when I was in Italy-Milano, speedcams from poiplaza are Outside from the road (might new road have been made).
    In Sicily, speedcams and Proximate Alert works fine!!!, if I haven't speedcam from poiplaza then it might got a fine

    But nowdays, maps-fda are full, maybe it doesn't needed to have Proximate alert from poiplaza, but I have them always in my trip.....

    Thanks all, I think I got what I needed. They are redlight cameras, since all of these type* have speed=0. I think you can't really 100% rely on one source, but if multiple sources gives same result, then it's good enough for me. Other than having real verification, it's best that anyone can do.

    * I was guessing that it was redlight camera, but wasn't sure because the type was different from another type that I thought was redlight as well.

    I will try anyway to get local information from friends because I'm not travelling to that area soon (I live in Rome). I'll do that because there is something fishy about those cameras that I'm courios about also. They might be trafficlights speedcameras (not just trafficlights cameras). Also, my assumption that you cannot overspeed there was wrong, from italian forums discussions seems is a 5 km straight road where people overspeed alot, and also camera type between poiplaza and scdb (also HERE) is different.

    @korin_ro, cool; if it turned out to be a combo (redlight+speed*) then it might be interesting and could explain why I'm "seeing" multiple types of redlight.

    * variable/unknown speed because speed=0?

    New question: What is this alert? It has a type name of "BK"; Bus Camera?

    Sooo, it turns out that the camera type in first post is originally a redlight+speed combo. However, people say it was disabled for some local issues since years ago, but it may still be redlight only. I guess it was modified to speed 0 by the speedcam database provider to show that. The limit on that road should be 70 km/h anyway, if we want to set it right (even if disabled). After cheching all these speedcam database providers @zervdim is so right saying that poiplaza is not very reliable. Scdb seems much better, even the .spc of here is better (in my opinion and referring to Italy only).
