It was the middle of the night with no traffic... 98% of people run red lights on accident and the potential danger of a crash is a big enough deterrence to keep people from running lights on purpose. Cameras do not make any/big enough difference in safety to constitute the amount of money being robbed out of our pockets. It's sickening to hear stories from friends telling me they got a surprise $500 fine for running a red light they didn't even realize they ran!
I'll be the first to admit that $500 is VERY excessive for that. But at the end of the day he ran a red light, and regardless of whether it was safe to do so or not, it's against the law. He could have come to a complete stop like he was supposed to, and saved himself $500. But he decided that it wasn't worth the extra 30 seconds of waiting at an empty intersection.

This "constant stream" is exactly the problem! People don't run red lights on purpose without making sure they aren't going to hit someone unless they are A. Drunk or B. Mentally retarded. So the cameras are simply there to take advantage of a "constant stream" of honest mistakes.
You cannot make a constant stream of mistakes. You make one mistake, get a $500 ticket and I can almost guarantee you won't be making anymore of the same mistake unless you're A. Drunk or B. Mentally retarded.

i vite instead of this we start having IQ tests and attention span tests. i think these would weed out the bad drivers or the ones that cant be troubled with focusing on their driving. i have seen somone smoking a cig, drinking coffee, putting on make-up while talking on the cell phone and driving a standard transmission. talking about multi-tasking. i dont know if youve noticed but the people who do speed rediculously hardly ever get caught. instead the people who forget to use their turn signal to change lanes get pulled over(trust me i know i have). if you cant ad up 535+394 in less than 7 secs you need to not drive. sorry for those people but how can you be expected to avoid an accident if you cant even react fast.

Lol when Obama came to London, his 'convoy' of security passed through the congestion charge zone, but only one car was issued a ticket because they were all so close together

Whether it was issued or not... who knows

It's perfectly legal to make a right turn on a red light. The issue is that he didn't stop completely before making the right turn.

I dont like the ideas of these cameras being posted on highways but the use of cameras like these and other cameras to capture speeders would definitely help in rural areas where speeding is a huge problem. I see on the news all the time about people speeding though towns and communities in my area. I know in my town some days they rely on one or two officers to police the whole town of 6000+ people. Camera systems could allow them to stop wasting time pulling people over and writing tickets to allow them to crack down on the huge drug problems in my area.

If these cameras would be used to track people each day, i do feel it would be to big brother like and would invade my privacy but, we do drive on the roads the government provides us. If it is not our personal property then I feel we do give up some sense of privacy.

Sadly all of this.



Where I live we have these new cameras that take pictures of your license plate if you turn at the wrong time or can't make the light in time, 3 warnings then a $50 ticket.

What's next? Cars with more horsepower than a Prius will be banned?

The hell... They monitor speeds with cameras? Here in Georgia, no one except for the occasional slow moving semi goes the speed limit on the interstate.
