Traffic camera monitoring inner city traffic

A traffic camera is a type of camera that is used to monitor vehicular traffic on roads and highways. Traffic cameras are typically mounted on poles or other structures alongside the road, and are connected to a monitoring system that allows traffic engineers and law enforcement officials to monitor traffic conditions in real time.

Traffic cameras can be used for a variety of purposes, including monitoring traffic flow, detecting accidents or other incidents, and enforcing traffic laws. 

Traffic cameras can also be used to provide live video feeds to news organizations or to the public, allowing people to see real-time traffic conditions and plan their routes accordingly.
