I question this whole "safe_t_cam" terminology.  Here in WA they are never referred to as "safe_t_cams".  I suspect it is  made-up name by the local police department to try and make it look like the purpose of them is for the safety of road users, and not revenue raising.

I think something more generic like "highway:speed_camera" is a much more generic tag suitable for all jurisdictions.
