Can traffic camera footage from an intersection be obtained, with or without a FOIA request? I would think this would be quite helpful if one has to go toe-to-toe with an insurance company after a wreck.

Random question, isn't it?

Most likely would require some sort of order. Helpful to the individual, but a major drag on city resources complying with every Joe, Dick, and Susie who wants footage of an intersection because they were involved in an accident.

No doubt it would probably suck up man-hours. It was more a curiosity thing than anything else.

There was a similar request from another poster recently...you might want to find that post and see if that poster ever got anything.

I certainly missed that one. I'll look and see if I can dig it up. Thanks.

I work in a public building and the cameras fall in my realm of responsibility. We are required to turn over footage when it is requested. It's considered a public record. I don't see any reason why traffic cameras wouldn't be the same way.
