red light cameras
 
I was coming back from the bank around 11:55pm and I was going to make a right turn but it was a red light. I made a complete stop but I guess I must have crossed over into the crossing lanes before I came to that complete stop (I must have been going around 3mph AT THE MOST) and then all these fucking flashes started going off. :wtf Fucking red light cameras! I still made the complete stop and waited for the green light EVEN THOUGH THERE WAS NO ONE AT THE INTERSECTION.

Think I'll get a ticket? God, I hope not. If I get a ticket, somebody's gonna get hurt.:ranting

We had one here (Beaverton, OR) that took pictures of every car passing thru an intersection for a whole day. Red light or Green light made no difference.

Even knowing it was a screw-up they sent the tickets anyway:angry

Beaverton is the place where they announced that they were installing the cameras as a "Revenue stream" and safety was secondary to that.:wtf Truth at last!!

If you get one for a Right on Red it should be easy to fight.

nah, you won't get a ticket. they are reviewed by police officers after the fact, and if you didn't run it, no ticket.

Wow. Just, wow.

I hope you're right about not getting a ticket. :\

Red-light cams have become increasingly widespread since their release in the early 1990s. The cams digitally take a picture of any car that crosses and intersection on a red light. Tickets are then issues and sent out the vehicle's listed proprietor. Opponents say they invade on privacy and they are more about earnings than public security. Fans say that they're a cost-effective way to keep drivers in check. Source of article: Do red-light cameras put profit over public safety?

I guess we need to be careful when we are driving if we don't want to have a traffic violation.:drive2 I just hope that red light cameras are more concerned on our public safety than revenues.
