You are a pro-criminal liberal FOOL!

The next time somebody runs a red turning light and almost hits me I will follow them and use my 2nd Amendment gun to shoot out all their tires!

The article was deleted. This deletion is the epitome of corruption. Some local mayor or someone getting kickbacks from the cameras likely used their influence over the news agency to pull the article. Vote different or enjoy living a life of ignorant opression.

you misunderstand..........
it's been there long enough that people should be used to it. people don't need to be speeding anyway. so if people get a ticket it is their own fault.

You are all correct. I have sent emails and made calls to Jason Mumpower, Ron Ramsey, Tony Shipley, and all. We must pursue them to get a law written to make these cameras illegal. Tony Shipley said that he will pursue this and I have told him that if they do restrict them that I want to make sure they do not "grandfather" any of the existing ones in.
Everyone please call and email your representative and urge them to do the same. It is our only option.
You're a good person . The men you named are absolutely worthless human beings http://votesmart.org/candidate/49170/matthew-...
These men have horrible, horrible plans for your lives in Tennessee. They are bought and paid for by blood Money and I can prove it to you. Nobody will listen, nobody even wats to hear it . Their plans for democracy in this state is to destroy it, maintain absolute dictatorship control and hand all power over to themselves and the wealthy. Tennnessee is already the 3rdpoorest state and their attempt is to have the rich and powerful and the paupers. No In between. They are socialist. Not Obama. They truly do the work of satan every single day. And Matthew hills radio station is missing $249,000 in contributions from donors. Will he go to jail? No...and David hawk beat his wife up over a year ago. Will he o to jail? He hasn't even been to court yet....don't be deceived, you're a good person

These cameras provide EQUAL JUSTICE with clear-cut evidence, unlike a cop in a car that can LIE about what you did!

WE NEED THESE CAMERAS ON EVERY TURNING LIGHT IN THE NATION.

The cameras give someone who runs the light a millisecond late and someone who runs it ten seconds late the SAME FINE. How is that equal justice, moron??

And know where most of the revenue comes from? That's right - from the people who ran the light a millisecond or two late, who never came close to causing an accident...you know HUMAN BEINGS.

I hope you idiots wise up before they start using technology to detect every tiny human flaw for use as an excuse to pick your pockets.

Oh really? Oh I see now. And if you don't want to stub your toe then just...don't stub your toe. And if you don't want to cut your hand...then don't cut your hand. Oh that's handy. Thanks for your grand wisdom. I guess you'll stick your head right up the butt of anyone who labels their money grabbing practices as something that keeps us "safe". Gotta be "safe". Gotta pay the price for not being "safe".

Here's a problem solver...moron...how about they increase the yellow light times...moron? Oh that's right - they couldn't make MONEY that way.

Human beings make mistakes. It's MORONS (and the moron sheeple who mindlessly support them) who try to profit from them.

WTF does your hand and toe have to do with it? i am not sticking my head anywhere. i am just able to pay attention while i drive and i obey the laws. it's really not that hard. no talking on the phone. no texting.
the powers that be know that the allmighty dollar is the most important thing. they need it and we want to keep it. so the best way to enforce the law when police officers can't be everywhere is to install cameras.
some people shouldn't be allowed to drive. i see it everyday. it's like they don't even know that in this country we drive on the right side of the road!! they will hand a drivers license to any moron that walks in the door.
i also think they should require people to take a drivers test every 10 years or so.
i mean seriously, have you ever been in bristol and had to make a left on west state onto 126? these morons cross the center yellow line and sit there with their turn signal on trying to get into taco bell. that means they are sitting in oncoming traffic!! theres NO cutoff there to turn. and i won't even get into the morons in kingsport..........

It's called reading comprehension - if you can't get the comparison, I can't help you get it.

"the powers that be know that the allmighty(sic) dollar is the most important thing" - thank you, that's one of my major sticking points.

I noticed you did not bother to address the easiest solution of all - the benefit of increasing yellow light times.

"so the best way to enforce the law when police officers can't be everywhere is to install cameras." NEGATIVE - this is not a prison system and we all haven't committed crimes. This is supposed to be a free society.

Well that's a nice generalized and extreme response. Try doing a search for the studies real life examples that have been done on this.

-"They removed cameras from a very busy intersection in my city and accidents by people running turning lights went up 1000%; there have been SEVEN accidents in 2 weeks"

LOL - Bull. And $hit.

you know guys, if a bunch of people would take pictures of the mayor's license plate or the police chief and blow em up to license plate size and lamanate em and put them on their cars and run those lights. when mr mayor or mr police chief gets a dozen tickets, them cameras will be gone in a week.
note. it's just a silly idea. it is in no way, shape, form or fashion intended to get anyone to break the law
GREAT IDEA
