Just another cash cow for the city. When they start enforcing the laws THEN and only then will laws be followed.

When camers issue the ticket, it goes to the owner of the vehicle not the driver which may or may not be the same person. But because running a red light, stop sign etc is a 'moving violation', the ticket appropriately goes to the driver, NOT the owner.

puleeze.... the OWNER IS RESPONSIBLE for his or her vehicle. If a secondary driver does the moving violation, the owner: 1) should know WHO was using said vehicle at the time and 2) demand compensation from them.

The REAL reason you oppose this: you run red lights and would get ticketed.

Yeah you're right. The fact that there are fewer broadside accidents at intersections is meaningless. That more drivers that once hit the gas at a yellow light are now instead hitting the brake is a bad thing. It's the fact that the city is making money that's the real issue. Right?

As I stated in a previous forum, if you don't want the city to take your hard earned money then don't run a red-light. Simple, really.

Security 4 A FEE??? How so??? I'll drive by a red light camera a million times and I'll never pay a cent. Why? Cuz, if the light is yellow or red... I'll stop. So, where's the fee, dumbass? hmmm... Ok... I get it... there's a fee for being a dumbass.
