I guess the City Council or Police Dept keeps removing my Red light comments.YOU CAN NOT GET A RED LIGHT TICKET REDUCED because the City Council passed and ordinace to not reduce tickets for running a Red Light.If you are the third car becareful it will catch you and you will get a ticket to pay their salary!!!!!!!!

Don't run a red light and you won't have to worry about it.

Studies show if you lengthen the yellow light you will have very few accidents or people running red lights but you can't make money on that so they won't do it.
So creep up to the green light at 10 miles an hour and when your right up to it floor it and pray. I get through every time though everyone else has to pass me. It's the world we live in people. It's not right but it's survival in 2013.

Try driving a 42,000 lbs motor home on a street with a 45 to 60 mph speed limit and going through a traffic light that has had the time of the yellow light shortened just to catch more people on red. The companies that are installing the cameras won't put them in unless the city agrees to shorten the length of time that the yellow light is on to the lowest time allowed by law. Seems to me they are more interested in collecting fines than they are in safety.

I wish they would raise the fine to $1000, then maybe those drivers who come thru the red lights when the other traffic has a green signal would get the message they are not SPECIAL, that in fact they are breaking the law.

I'd love to see some new article (local, reliable) that actually states the cameras are back on.
