That was my thought. I was trying for the last couple days and they all had the unavailable image up so I checked DOT's site and found the new ones.

wow! much better. The old ones were a pain to refresh. Couldnt do it easily in the browser with F5. I know the old ones were "unavalible" when there was anything "interesting" to see.

I'm sure the State Police will continue block the cameras during "events"
They should just show reruns of Pee-Wee's Playhouse


And I think the DOT controlls them, not CSP



Hay hartford area isnt on that webpage!:evil:

DOT has a control area for all the cameras at Troop G in Bridgeport. They have their own desks but CSP is sitting right behind them and can have them pull the feed on cameras when needed.

I caught the tail end of a fight on the shoulder of I-95 s/b x55 last weekend. Came in really good w/ new camera set up.

Its Funny!

I remember very clear when they first talked about puting the cameras up. They said this is to" assist the department of transportation not the state police". Yeah right! State Police has all but taken over those cameras. Yes! Dot has a person controling the cameras, but lets face it, those of us who have been in that room know who really calls the shots! That being said, nice improvement!
