    Not only that, the governments reduce the time that the yellow lights are activated in order to catch more people.
    It’s also been proven that at intersections with red light cameras, the number of rear-end accidents have gone up significantly.

    True, however, several studies indicate that the incidence of more severe side strike light running accidents has gone down. It’s a tradeoff, one most of the supporters of cameras won’t mention. Interestingly, increasing the duration of the yellow light seems to reduce rear end accidents, of course, this is the exact opposite tack from that taken by cities that view cameras as a revenue source.

    And just when did “We the People” VOTE for publicly funded, privacy invading, red light camera’s?

    The same day we voted to make laws simply suggestions. The same day we decided that the law applied to everyone else but us. I don’t like where Big Brother is going, either, but I also don’t like having to check my rear view mirror when I decide to stop for a light to make sure that the one behind me is stopping as well.

    This may be true, but we continue to put the wasters and corrupted ones back in office.

    Why do we do that?

    Our town voted to put video cameras at stop lights using the reason that they would to stop people running the left turns after red. But when they were installed, they were all put in the right turn lanes to catch people not fully stopping, because “That’s where the money is at.” After about a year of this people finally got mad enough about being exploited that they were finally removed. FYI, did you know that a large chunk of the of the fines collected got straight to the camera installation company? We didn’t, until after installation.

    Ok…the spokespersons have FINALLY made a couple of valid points.

    They may be crooks, but they are our crooks. We may scream about the waste, but as long as we get our cut we will continue to look the other way.

    The camera co’s make the $$, funny thing is, I moved from a state where red light cameras are explicitly illegal to one where they are encouraged, and there’s a LOT more red light running here. Because they don’t have cops AT the lights, so if it doesn’t have a camera, why even both stopping?
