Red Light Cameras Coming To Pittsburgh Intersections

Full story: CBS Local 11
"It raises my comfort level significantly to know that we could test this, we could pilot this in approximately 20 intersections - no more - and then review it and see if it brings the benefit that we believe it will bring and, if not, we can review and dismiss," said Councilman Bruce Kraus, who heads the Public Safety Committee.

Ho Hum - Just another reason not to go to the city.

I wonder if they will install these in the Negro neighborhoods? I heard they have copper wire in them?

Thanks Luke, your legacy, red light cameras. Hoooray!

Many jurisdictions in which these devices have been employed have seen strong opposition for various reasons, including short yellow light timing designed to entrap drivers.

A mailed summons to the owner, not the driver, and which means points cannot be assessed against violators license, and so penalize the offender (particularly repeat offenders) more effectively makes their use more about garnering income for the city, than stopping law-breakers.

And the boy-mayor doesn't pass legislation, council does. And Peduto supports the legislation as well.

And you're still the little troll, employing bigotry as you bait.

I'm still betting that they do not end up in the Negro neighborhoods! These cameras take photos in color and that will be racist.

Let's wait and see. As you have never lived the life you wouldn't see unbiased truth if it was shoved in your face. They will not put these cameras in the Negro neighborhoods, they will be used to rape the suburbanites!

Remember they are built of copper wire!

The cameras will be placed were they will maximize revenue for the private company winning the contract. Period. Public safety is a secondary consideration at best.

And you're still a troll boy!

Yea. its not vegas. But get used to cams at lights. And there are already cams all over for good reason. For the housewife who cant get dinner on time to the street thug who wants to rob while looking for a job. Yea the cameras come into play. Yea I don't put my life on the line for a signal light. But just think about dinner alone. One is in prison. The other is in the grave.

I wear the badge proudly! But it's still the truth.

How many of these cameras will be in the Negro neighborhoods. How many PAT busses will be cited? How do they get those bicyclists, who don't obey any laws?

Remember they have a lot of copper wire in them.

Once again, thanks Luke, a really neat way to screw with the city, good job. If you can get a fax machine or a copy machine in there Zappalla will treat as felonies.

Absolutely no mistake about that, troll-boy! But only as bait to seek engagement of a fragile and battered psyche... so very, very sad.

Ho Hum, same old progressive liberal BS, Hiding behind the Ole Racism tag, again, Ho Hum.

Don't change the fact that I'm still betting that the Negroes do not get the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful "red light cameras. I'm calling racist now! Perduto does not want Negroes to be safe!
