    Abolish Traffic Enforcement Cameras

    Are you aware that traffic enforcement cameras are designed primarily to steal people's money rather than enhance safety?

    Did you know that the yellow on many intersections on major highways is set at the minimum legal limit of three seconds--inadequate most of the time?

    Did you know that cameras cause more accidents than they prevent?

    Would you like to abolish any of these?

    Do you have many cameras in your neighborhood?

    Have you received any (or many) tickets from cameras?

    I will say that there are many intersections I feel MUCH safer at now.

    Do I have any doubt that they are revenue producers? Nope.

    I got one ticket a few years back. Cost me a chunk of change (wasn't worth my time to fight). Guess what. I am a lot more careful now. (I did not fully stop when turning on a red).

    It is simple. Stop as you are required and if there are extenuating circumstances, the video will help you in court and it can be dismissed.

    One ticket. None since, because I have become more alert and careful.

    I would fight for the cameras to be set properly, but removal....naw.

    Easy way to avoid tickets given because of traffic cameras. Don't break the law.

    Way too complicated. We must abolish the law and do away with cameras.

    How about keep the cameras, but only for use as evidence when a car has been pulled over by a human police officer. None of this get your ticket in the mail business.

    I do indeed. I am not responsible for ensuring I don't break the law. The law is responsible for ensuring I don't break the law. Wait.... I'm mixed up like a Trekkie at a Star Wars convention.

    So 99.99 of red light runners get off? There are not enough officers to enforce or even make a dent.

    I have no issue with police being used to fight crime rather than enforcing traffic law violators.

    When I got mine, I saw the video and saw I was guilty. Paid the fine and became more aware of my surroundings and driving habits.

    A coworker of mine went to court to try to get off....the video was reviewed and the judge brought her up to the desk with the video and said "you are coming to me when you know I can watch the video and you are on the cell phone while running the red light?" She paid her fine and left.
