Red-light cameras are snapping up violations

Nov 28, 2007 | Posted by: A liberal dose | Full story: A liberal dose

Nearly 3,000 motorists have been caught running the red light at Watson Road and Avenue H in Arlington since cameras were installed in June. The seven Arlington intersections with red-light cameras have racked up a total of nearly 9,500 red-light violations in the last five months.

In North Richland Hills, about 2,700 red-light runners have been tallied since its cameras went live in May. Most of those violations came from the intersection at Rufe Snow Drive and Dick Lewis Drive. And this week, Fort Worth activated cameras at seven intersections. Read more

Hey, the city made a wonderful decision! The cameras pay for themselves and produce great revenue to boot. Perhaps we should look at other ways smart, non-taxing ways to save and make money for the city.

Of course it's a great decision. Just costs me about 50 bucks for a plate that's invisible to the cameras, then about 100 bucks for a device that warns me when I'm approaching a camera-monitored intersection and I'm all set.

I have told you once you stupid idiot when you come through my city you had better be prepared! These traps don,t work here. Thus I have a good mind of fowarding this note of yours to the police department? So they can be on the lookout for fellow,s like you. What a stupid thing to do. Can,t you just wait on the red lights? Can you go the speed limit?? Let me know when you get tickets in your mailbox, gee so I can laugh ehehehheheheh

How about hidden cameras along the freeway to catch anyone going 1 mph over the limit just like they do in the UK? That sounds like loads of fun.

They make devices that thwart those as well. Fairly inexpensive too.

I plan to get them all actually.

Wouln,t be proper if these guys just simply obeyed the law??? Very clear when a red light sais to stop just stop. Speeding why do people bother to even speed?? Your right these devices don,t work. Getting these guys over to Irvin is unlikely they will not fall for that. These clowns are scared of there own shadow,s.

Very simple if your told to go the speed limit then do it. Now what brings a ft.worth guy on this forum? Now you have me to deal with right? I love these camera,s my freind and I don,t have a problem with them. Just like the sloogans gang bangers in metro dade county in maimi florida they hate hidden camera,s and do you know why????? Because any crime they commit they get nailed! I think we need more camera,s my freind based on the way things are going nowdays don,t you think??? Not really aganst your message here but it was kind of a wise crack. I think your attempt to say was perhaps you got a speeding ticket for one mile over speed limit??? Well fact is you knew the speed limit and that means not one more over are anym miles over that speed limit. So very true years ago they often gave warning if you didn,t go over 5 miles over speed limit. The fact is you nuckel headed ft.worth cowboy you should have no problems with the traffic laws if you simply obey them. I hear of alot of people getting killed all due to red light runners and speeder,s on the free=way. Now in the future think about postin on the ft.worth topix forums...

I personally don't mind them. I'll soon have all the necessary devices to thwart the more 'ridiculous' traps. So I'm not worried.

This is great watching others get much deserved tickets that they need and if only I was there to see there moaning faces. Think about it. For example if I was kicking your ass on a the side of the highway and with all these camera,s the high protroll would be able to come in save your hide. Are a hitcher made a jump on your car and with camera,s so it can be seen would be full and great proof in courts and also allow,s your hide to be saved????? You had better bend down on your sorry knee,s and pray and be thankfull that there are camera,s out there. Now I,am not an ass kicker nor a big tough figher I was using that as a smarte butted example here and just htink about why these camera,s how out there.
