The online retailer, wanting more control over how its packages are delivered, is rolling out a program Thursday that lets entrepreneurs around the country launch businesses that deliver Amazon packages.
Recently, the company has come under fire from President Donald Trump, who tweeted that Amazon should pay the US Postal Service more for shipping its packages.

Still, this is only permitted as long as audio isn’t being recorded and people are aware of the cameras, Fine said. Fine says Ring-style surveillance doorbells and cameras at the front door, facing the outside area, are also permitted as long as there is a sign outside to let tenants know.
Fine says even if a lease contains a video surveillance clause, it cannot be enforced if it is against the law. Majid says if there is a camera in your unit without your permission, you can file a T2 form with the Landlord and Tenant Board.
The tenant “can also call the Ministry of Housing, and they could charge the landlord with a provisional offense,” Fine said. Some Water is a breaking news reporter, working out of the Star's radio room in Toronto.
Are they set up to take photos of speeding cars coming towards them….and ignoring motorbikes cos they don’t have a front number plate or do they take pics of cars/bikes going past? Posted 7 years Agathe one that sits on the Pebbles road near Lead burn has a hatch at the back and on the sides, and I’ve seen the camera pointing out the front windshield.
Posted 7 years ago was told at my speed awareness course that they can do either front or rear facing cameras. Posted 7 years given I have only ever seen them in daylight hours I am guessing they don’t have a flash function.
Either that or it is too expensive to have a civvies sat in a van to book people outside normal office hours. Posted 7 years ago….and they can only sit in designated places where there are warning signs, a good sight line and space for them to pull off the road.
Posted 7 years Agathe ones in north works have 2 forward 2 rear and CIRC 4 on each side. Posted 7 years another are massively strict rules in place for position, placement, signage, distance, etc BUT unless you know them all, are willing to fight and get the tape measure out, etc they win every time….
Posted 7 years ago There are massively strict rules in place for position, placement, signage, distance, etc BUT unless you know them all, are willing to fight and get the tape measure out, etc they win every time….

Yes, the speed limits are daft in some places, yes there is probably some truth that cameras and vans etc are sometimes placed in ‘high catch’ areas with a view to generating some revenue but the fact is you only get a fine and / or points if you are speeding.

I watched as three Power Rangers on sports bikes hurtled through at just under the speed of sound, one of them defiantly popping a wheelie as they passed the impotent camera. Posted 7 years again west Yorkshire the latest camera vans appear to have hatches on the front, rear and side.
Posted 7 years ago Not being high and mighty and all that but why do people get so he up about being caught breaking the law? Also, catching speeding motorists to hit targets (which they have set) must be like shooting fish in a barrel.
