Nevada company records traffic cameras, catches more than just traffic

Nevada Department of Transportation uses cameras to monitor traffic problems around the state.

There are thousands of NDOT traffic cameras. So many in fact, you may not even notice them, but they are scattered around Nevada on traffic lights and on freeways.

Until recently, the video has not been stored because the government does not record it. But the videos recorded by National Traffic Video have been useful for attorneys, insurance companies, and law enforcement…

The live video is available to the public through websites NDOT provides on, but this is the first known private company to record the cameras, which is raising concerns about big brother watching you.

And that video being used against you in court…

National Traffic Video charges insurance companies and attorneys for video, and that’s how they fund the operation and secure the servers to store the data.
