Bay Ridge ( Decoy ) Red Light Camera - 75th Street

Red Light Cameras 001, originally uploaded by Phantom Photo.

This decoy red light camera is on the westbound side of Bay Ridge Parkway ( 75th Street ) right outside Starbucks ( to the extreme left of the photo ).

Unlike the camera on 86th Street, this one is probably a fake. How do we know? No flash mechanism atop the " camera " .

Maybe the flash unit hadn't been installed yet onto the "camera"?

That's possible. But I believe that there are a number of decoys, and note that this unit has one " lens " while the real one on 86th Street has two. Maybe I'll ask one of the people at Starbucks if it is real. They would know.
