There are to many drivers crossing on red lights, at least in my area. And to many accidents happening for the same reason, I support the red light cameras. Sadly, my county does not believe in them, despite the number of accidents due to these drivers.
didn't go to the sign because it is going to be just another scam where he hits you up for money for his re-electon campaign. If the attorney general would doing his job red light cameras would have been taken to court by the state and forced the cities to obey the law, running red lights can't be both a civil offense if caught by a camera and a criminal offense if caught by the police. you would not have to prove you are innocent and were not driving the car. On any traffic law they claim is for safety 100% of the money should have to go to traffic safety training and not into the general fund where it supports pork barrel projects.
I live in Hurst and the number of people who run reds, turn right or u-turn at “do not” marked intersections, etc is scary.
I say dont repeal. It is because of a lack of a camera that i was blamed when the person took a red while i was already in the intersection.
Get rid of the cameras. It is a farce to say they prevent accidents. I see more speeding when the light is yellow with cameras watching. And who the heck told ya that oh yeah you will have access to the video in case of an accident. B.S. Just a money making machine. A civil matter with no recourse because a third party issues the ticket not a peace officer.
The main problem is that the lights are controlled by an out of state company and they get most of the money from the fines
There are other ideas such as roundabouts that work better than red lights as they cause accidents from braking. Or stoplights that show timers of changes between the lights.
red light cameras can be vary good if its is handled by the accountable government but the cameras are not they are used under big companies who profit off of them that is my issue
If we would stop running red lights and hittin people then try to blame it on the other person we would need the cameras
You can always sue the person for damages to pay for the ticket if they violate the driving laws in your car
