I'm not sure where you are getting that info from. Chicago is at the top of the list of number of red light and speed cameras. 300 intersection cameras at least. You can read more about this program here: Chicago Red Light Camera Program

They've had the usual corruption and kickback issues with it, as is typical of Chicago, but the program remains.


Dang, I thought I remembered reading an article a few years ago about how the city was sued over the red light cams and were forced to remove them.

The only thing stopping them now is the political back lash.

I expect that to change someday as governments want any and all money that can be extracted from their residents and visitors without political penalties, such as being voted out of office. That is the only real defense citizens have against these money grabs.



So what's the point of the driving license then and why stop at red light tickets?


Because if a cop see's you, you might get a ticket if you dont stop at the red light!!! Because if you are caught doing any type of driving breaking the law by a police officer you or whoever is driving your car will be charged.

HOWEVER if your car, not you, is caught breaking the law by a camera instead of a police officer, the owner of the vehicle will be fined. The reason you will not be charged is because there is no proof of who was behind the wheel. its NO DIFFERENT then getting a parking ticket! The driver doesnt get the ticket, the vehicle/owner gets the ticket.

So the vehicles owner will be fined and not charged with a crime or offense but he/she is responsible for safe operation on his/her vehicle on public highways, going through red lights is not safe operation. The buck stops with you, the owner!

Real simple stuff and for the third time, I dont understand why anyone is against enforcing the law. Many INNOCENT lives are lost by read light runners, speeders ect ... yet some of the public, many, are against government actually doing something that is efficient to enforce the law. Red lights cameras AND speeding cameras for the interstates.
Technology is there for everything. Heck, you get fined on the NYS throughway if you make it from one exit to another too quickly.

In SC a police department had to take their cameras down on I95 that was catching speeders with super efficiency via a camera video taping the speeding vehicle with a read out of the radar speed.
The corrupt press jumped all over it because it did its job too well. States and politicians talk about reducing deaths on the roads but its just BS talk, because all the technology is there.

I think Houston only has a few of them if any at all. Basically the company who made the cameras made out better than the city.

Besides everyone is on their phones now so most people let the green light turn on for 5 or 6 seconds before moving giving the red light guys plenty of time. I've seen cars sit until it turned red again.

I could agree with most of your above post, except this bit.

Please read up on how the yellow light duration is shortened below the reaction time levels on intersections where drivers adjusted their driving to avoid red light tickets and that revenue stream started to perform worse than planned.

Its simply another recenue stream disguised as a safety measure.

Exactly. Red light cameras go up, and yellow lights get shorter.

Put speed cameras on the highway and watch for more speed limit changes along routes.

Same crap in Germany. They put the cameras right next to the [censored] speed limit sign and if you're not under by the sign, you get popped.

Yes, it's all about the revenue stream.
The people who want cameras everywhere must think that the book 1984 had a happy ending.

1984, your already there so why not enforce the law?
Your perception of 1984 isnt reality and using traffic tickets is the poorest of all examples.

Your license plate can be tracked almost anywhere you drive, your face can be tracked anyplace you go and almost no one cares about that or raises an objection.

In the name of free services you and almost everyone willingly allows google and all internet companies to track your private information and that of your children (even scan your gmail account emails!) on your computer, package that usage and put it up for auction that is sold on the world market to the highest bidder and no one cares or raises an objection, except the EU is ahead of us when it comes to privacy.
Massive amounts of money are made on the actioning of Americans private information from their smart phones and computers, most people have no clue the profits in this industry and the salaries.

What does one think? Google out of its sweet little heart spends tens of BILLIONS of dollars a year to give you free stuff with no profit? :o)
What do you think, these companies are using your information to better your life? They know you better then you know yourself, they know what ads to display for example and there are WAY more sinister ways to control peoples thoughts, but I am getting off subject (yes I know, again *L*)

So a traffic ticket is more private then anything you are doing right now on your computer, a ticket is nothing compared to it..
All I am saying is, government does nothing efficient and when they actually can such as automated vehicle violations, people object until god forbid a loved one is involved in an accident that could have been prevented, then we scream where is the enforcement.
Death tolls on americas roadways are always blamed by the media on lack of enforcement, if the pubic cared, they would allow technology to enforce it.

Look at the police operations for enforcing the law on the roadways, what has advanced in the last 4 decades? Nothing, because its a government agency that annoys people if it is to effective and who cares if the violators support the system? I mean like, hello? That would be nice for a change.

Know any company in the world that still does the same procedure for the last 4 decades without improvement in efficiency?


Just having fun here and making some points, dont get all upset over my posts :o)

Alarmguy, you keep bringing up the safety aspect, but how does reducing the yellow light time improve safety?

The camera system has nothing to do with privacy, at least that's not my point. I don't expect any privacy in public or public roads.

If safety was the primary goal, nobody would temper with yellow light duration.

Again, speed and red light cameras are nothing more than profit centers- and the fact that they are are glowingly endorsed by the Safety Gestapo makes them even more reprehensible in my book.

I cant answer your question because it isnt based on proof/fact and honestly can be the situation for any stop light. For example a police officer can sit and ticket cars at a light with a short yellow light time.
Your saying they shorten yellow light times because its a camera stop light, sorry dont believe it, but, there is corruption in any agency, so if you live in one of those areas, demand it be corrected. Its not an excuse to allow people to run red lights, speed, or break the law.
If you know of wrong doing, then you need your public representatives to correct it. Its no different then being pulled over by a police officer.

There must be a standard in your state, heck, government has a standard for everything, on the amount of yellow light time, if you feel cheated by a ticket, go to the light, time it, and tell the judge the results. Again, no different then if you got pulled over by a police car.
I think, safe to say, most people with this yellow light time complaint, regularly push the limits through yellow and why the opposition.

Profit centers, very rare in government are good, paid for by people who break the law, normally taxpayers have to pay for them but not in this case, the violators will keep my taxes lower. Heck, even I may have to chip in once in a while, but that is ok! *L*
