    At intersections, red light cameras tend to reduce right-angle crashes but increase rear-end crashes. The angle crashes are usually more severe, so the cameras can provide some public safety benefits, but revenue seems like the primary motivation for many of these cameras. Maybe they should be limited to high-risk intersections as evidenced by crash data.

    the cameras are bullshit.
    we had them in our city. The fine for running the light doubled, with all that extra money- which is illegal to add- going to the camera company.
    They say its all about safety- that's fucking bullshit. in fact rear end collisions increased at the lights.
    Our city got rid of them. why? they weren't making money, of course. so much for "safety" :snicker:
    everyday it's another scam and another lie. fuck billary

    In many jurisdictions, you may not actually have to pay the ticket. In DC, if I remember correctly, the camera only takes a picture of a license plate and not the occupant. Thus, there's actually no proof beyond a reasonable doubt that you are driving the car when it committed the offense. The govt often just relies on the moderate intimidation factor of receiving a official citation in the mail, and ppl just blindly pay.

    I got one last month. I was making a right on red. "WTF?" I asked? How is that illegal. They tell me "You didn't come to a complete stop for a full 3 seconds." Dickwads! Cost me $166.00

    If they really wanted to fix the safety issue the simple solution is a count-down yellow light. Then there's no excuse for running a red light and anyone who does deserves the fine.

    Problem solved.

    They should just increase the DUI fines to $10,000 and forget about these cameras.

    That's why Captain has two of his own motion cameras in his car.


    Already beat one ticket b/c I had my own recording of events.
