Question: I have it stuck in my mind, presumably from getting my driver's license years ago, that drivers are OK as long as they have entered the intersection on a yellow light.

Hawaii- kingdom of scofflaws: the land of the darkly tinted window, speeding lifted trucks with oversized tires, deafening exhaust, off-roading beach racers, green bottle sucking DUI thugs, this land of Ainokea bozos will not easily slow the red light runners. They are prepared to fight for their rights to continue to break whatever laws they wish to and to continue to destroy aloha in the process.

The most pathetic argument against the red light cameras is the idea that this will increase traffic accidents due to cars stopping at an intersection when it has turned red and a car behind hitting the car in front thinking the front car would be running the red light as well. Anyone stupid and reckless enough to cause such an accident deserves to be held liable for all damages and consequences given the car behind is automatically wrong when they hit someone from behind in that manner. Have absolutely no sympathy for such reckless drivers who do such a thing, all in the name of beating a red light. I bet if red-light cameras are put all along streets such as Kapiolani and Beretania, guarantee the number of cars hitting pedestrians in marked sidewalks on those streets will be greatly reduced.

We have red light cameras in Savannah. There are more minor accidents at these intersections, but the fatality rate has dramatically decreased.

There used to be a joke in SAV that if you were one of the first three cars running a red, you would not get a ticket.

Actually, there was an article in the AJC that 5 metro Atlanta cities are turning off the cameras as they do not create enough revenue
