It is probably not only Chicago but other places. All these cameras are Revenue Agents. They shorten the orange light to write more tickets. Who can actually know when the picture was taken unless they are on the nside or hire an engineer to figure it out. The span of time when a picture is taken is programmed by the copany. They get paid by the ticket and so does the city or town. That is like the fox policing the hen house.

These red light scams are being ended by many municipalites due to increasing lawsuits from innocent drivers.

Is that a question? Which "fake Professor" would you be referring to? What evidence can you cite to back your claim?

You, of course. All 'fake professors' and some that have attended enough classes to say they are 'professors' write and speak with same cadence as 16 yr. olds.

So, just more imbecilic generalizations without a shred of evidence to support them? I suppose that answers my questions, in a way.

And FYI -'tha Professor' is a nickname, I've never once actually claimed to be a 'Professor.' I think you'll find that many nicknames on here are fictional if you examine them carefully...:)

In my state they want to redesign our license plates so the camera's can read them.

Florida is making plans to produce a new license plate, and Floridians will get a chance to pick the winner in an online poll in the next few months.

Right now, several prototypes are under consideration with variations of green stripes or accents, but all are flat plates with solid black letters. The new plate would dump county names and replace them with "Sunshine State" or "In God We Trust."

The goal is to make Florida's new license plate more readable for police and cameras. It's estimated Florida loses millions of dollars every year at toll booths and intersections when cameras cannot read the plates of violators.

The leader of Florida's Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles says in this year alone, red light cameras missed about three million license plates because they were unreadable.
