the biggest problem with red light cameras is the contract clause that prohibits the city from lengthening the yellow light time.
Lengthening the yellow time gives drivers more time to stop and reduces accidents. It also reduces tickets. the contractors don't want to invest money installing a system and then have the city reduce their profits.

money-maker, aka TAX. how is this going to be administered? what is running the red light? what if you are in the intersection waiting to make a left turn? there are too many individual situations that require case-by-case analysis. and have they resolved the ID problem? the courts struck down the speeding cam tickets because of this. if they don't resolve that fundamental issue, then we will have the same fiasco we had a few years ago, with our legislators looking like idiots and the taxpayers paying millions of dollars to undo the law, including paying the vendor that is going to make millions on this scam. come on people, why are we so apathetic? get rid of this bill. write to your senator, call or email him/her and tell them this bill stinks!!!

No, no... a thousand times no.
Traffic light cameras don't reduce accidents. All they do is generate revenue for the company that installs them - and the city. If you want more money, at least make it honest (cough) and just raise the Excise Tax.
You want fewer people to run lights? More police.
Oh - and speaking of lights... Bus #501 turning from King to Iwilei street last night at a few minutes before 7pm - don't run red lights. You're driving a damn bus!!!!

If we pay for this, then we don't need cops watching red lights, I suggest we cut the police force then, 5-10% They could also do this for parking tickets right?

When a crime happens the police always say that they have to see it in person to process to issue a ticket. Why don't they have to see these crimes to issue a ticket? In the former case are they too lazy? In the latter case are they too greedy?

Because running a red light is not a crime.
