VIDEO: Police in Albany, N.Y., Explain Red-Light Camera Rules

Though red-light cameras continue to generate controversy, a total of 443 communities in the U.S. have such enforcement systems in operation, according to the latest tally from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Supporters, including IIHS, argue that red-light camera systems promote driver safety. Opponents counter that they’re primarily a means for city and county governments to raise revenue. But one thing is certain: Red-light cameras aren’t going away any time soon in the U.S.

    NJ just banned the cameras. Maybe we should follow suit?

    It was reported TWICE in the Philly Inquirer that crashes went UP in the city at red-light camera intersections. How was this missed? How can the officials deny this, when it was in black and white? Unreal! Anyone who cannot see this is revenue driven must have blinders on.

    All this is a gimmick of poor traffic engineering and predatory enforcement. It has to be setup to ticket safe drivers. Who cares if they have to pay or crashes go up? Who cares if the wrong guy is even cited? Who cares if the ticket has an erroneous reading?

    So when the light is too short, people are cited a split-second after it changes, for stopping over the stop line, or a non-complete stop for a right-on-red turn, who can defend this setup?

    All you need are speed limits set to the 85th percentile free-flowing traffic speed, longer yellows, decent length all-red intervals, and sensors to keep an all-red in someone enters late. No crashes! Can also sync lights and use sensors to change them and know where cars are.

    Add to this the speed cameras where the limits are too low, as well as tickets just barely over the limit. Heck, a guy in Baltimore was going 57 mph, while SITTING at a light! There were so many errors there that Baltimore scrapped the speed camera program. Low speed limits=more crashes, see the Solomon Curve.

    Then we have the stop-arm cameras, but wait, school buses are the ones running kids over per governmental data, not other cars. Why can't we use the stop-arm extenders that block the oncoming lane?

    But wait, then throw in municipal police radar, so we can cite people for breaking the absurdly low speed limits.

    Who cares if the cameras generate revenue, that is not an argument to get rid of them. I do have a problem when I see cameras at intersections that do not need them, while intersections with histories of deadly accidents go unmonitored.

    We need cameras at every intersection with the capability to also photograph the drivers' faces so they can no longer weasel out of tickets by claiming they were not driving. Those who don't like or want the cameras are the people who are the dangerous drivers who violate laws, are unsafe drivers, and want to escape punishment for their irresponsible and and potentially deadly driving habits.

    LinuxGuy wrote, "So when the light is too short, people are cited a split-second after it changes, for stopping over the stop line, or a non-complete stop for a right-on-red turn, who can defend this setup?"

    Any safe driver can defend it. The last time I drove through an intersection, I saw something called a YELLOW light. If irresponsible drivers would heed the yellow and stop, they would not have problems stopping before entering the intersection. But, the yellow is a signal to unsafe drivers to speed up to get through the intersection before the light turns red, that is why cars end up in the intersection.

    FYI, a 41% increase in speed results in a doubling of stopping distance. That distance assumes the brakes and tires work the same at the higher speed. I know this because I am a physicist and physics instructor. So a driver who arbitrarily decides that the 40 MPH speed limit is too low and drives at 50 MPH has just increased the automobile's stopping distance by 56%, and then whines that the light was too short when given a ticket for entering the intersection on a red light.

    LinuxGuy also wrote, "But wait, then throw in municipal police radar, so we can cite people for breaking the absurdly low speed limits."

    Absurdly low by whose judgement, yours? Since most police ignore speed violations up to 9 MPH over the limit, and drivers know this, then the speed limits need to be 10 MPH lower than the maximum safe speed for the roadway. Would you prefer higher speed limits with absolutely no tolerance for speeding, by even 1 MPH?

    I've gotten speeding tickets, and guess what? I was guilty every time, so I accepted my punishment like a RESPONSIBLE ADULT instead of whining like a little kid ("look what you made me do!").

    Bring on the cameras and the radar!
