Be sure to know your cameras before accepting new camera reports. Currently only the Waze client app can add cameras to the map. When adding a camera from the app, be sure to review the camera placement recommendations.

Speed / red light cameras

Laws regarding speed and red light cameras vary between the states and territories, so be sure to understand the details of camera legality in Virginia. Not every camera-looking device at an intersection is a speed or red light camera. Generally speaking:

  • a speed camera takes a photograph of a vehicle when it passes by the camera at too high a speed.
  • a red light camera takes a photograph of a vehicle that enters an intersection after the light is red.

In some areas, it takes the photograph when a vehicle is not clear of the intersection some period after the light turns red.

Speed cameras

There are no speed enforcement cameras anywhere in the Commonwealth of Virgina as they are illegal.

Red light cameras

Red light cameras are legal, but the number of them is regulated by State law.

Other camera types

These are cameras or signs that either provide driver feedback or are used for traffic control such as VDOT monitor cameras and emergency vehicle detectors. These devices CAN NOT issue tickets and should not be mapped.
