[Vision2020] Curious about cameras, speaking of privacy

I had been wondering about that myself​. I asked a guy I know who works for
the IDOT and he told me that the reason for so many "cameras" at
that location is that they are doing a test of a bunch of different ways to
control the lights at busy intersections to replace to old fashioned
induction loops buried in the roadway. He told me that none of the devices
are connected to recording equipment and the output is being monitored from
an office in Lewiston with an eye to choosing a device that works well to
control the flow of traffic in all weather conditions. (fog, heavy snow,
driving rain, etc.)
