The cameras need to go, they do not do any good it was proven the system was a complete failure. Just another way to cost the tax payers money. Not to mention the system failed to improve traffic safety and the idiots on the road texting and talking on the not smart phones.

Funny how when people are forced to account for their illegal driving actions people cry the loudest, such as these people who ignore red light and Leaping Lizards crying that their drunk drivers are leaving the parking lot.

Here is a job creator. Put the camera in the vehicle. Have an on board computer govern speed automatically to a maximum of what is posted on the road. Have the computer see and read road signs for traffic lights, stop signs, school buses, etc. Probably be cheaper than the standing army we have giving out millions of dollars of tickets all over the USA. If we can build vehicles with programs to park themselves, this can be accomplished. This eliminates today $700,000 a camera, need to read picture, postage, extra baking, lost time at jobs, over burden courts and staff, reduce radar and calibrating, numbers of overlapping agencies put on traffic details.

People definitely get angry when they are held accountable for their driving and are forced to drive safely.
