In yet another blow to the argument cameras violate the Due Process rules:
"WASHINGTON — Fair warning — D.C. police have installed new cameras for automated speed and stop sign enforcement.
The Metropolitan Police Department says 9 new photo enforcement units are located at places where speeding and pedestrian safety have been identified as a problem.
A closely divided Ohio Supreme Court on Wednesday stood by its earlier ruling upholding use of traffic cameras.
The justices rejected a driver's motion to reconsider their 4-3 ruling in December. The court's announcement showed that the same three justices who previously dissented disagreed with the latest decision.
The City Council voted 3-1 Monday night to bring the controversial saga to an end when the contract with the vendor runs out — likely in December, although there might be some dispute about the date.

I was driving on 1-9 in NJ for quite a ways southbound, went through a bunch of former RLCs that are turned off. There are no more signs, Photo Enforced, but the hardware is still there.
At each of 5 of the intersections that I went through, there were zero vehicles that ran a red light. In intersections where there were never any rlcs, I saw the usual 0-3-4 vehicles running the red lights.

LAKELAND | A state appeals court will stick by a decision on red-light cameras that many cities worry could leave them facing millions of dollars in lawsuits.
From the article: "The caller reportedly tells the victim that they owe the city money for unpaid red light camera violations and demands it be paid via a Reloadit prepaid card."
The only people opposing the removal are the ones that are probably getting kick backs. The voters should prevail.
In Yonkers injury crashes increased 29% at RLC locations and rear end crashes have nearly doubled
Staten Island--injuries have increased 35% at RLC locations
The article said local officials are being selective with the data they provide.
Wall St Journal
"Money-hungry politicians discredit a hopeful safety innovation.
A promising industry betrayed by the behavior of its customers—that’s the story of the red-light camera business.
Chicago Tribune 12/19/2014:
"Chicago's red light cameras fail to deliver the dramatic safety benefits long claimed by City Hall, according to a first-ever scientific study that found the nation's largest camera program is responsible for increasing some types of injury crashes while decreasing others.
The 5-year pilot program will end Dec. 16
In Washington DC, Don't attempt to make it through the yellow light because now Red Light cameras will track your speed as well. You have been warned !!!
" How does the program work?
in NJ. Having gone through many of them on green and yellow, never gotten a ticket, I think they should remain, but like American Idol, the voters have spoken.
I hadn't heard of this issue before:
"A retired UK engineer is reportedly convinced he wasn't speeding, despite getting a ticket generated by a speed camera. So he gets on his hands and knees to prove white lines on the road are incorrectly spaced."
In Ohio a new traffic camera bill is on it's way to the Governor who is expected to sign it. The bill would take effect 90 days after the Governor signs it unless it is delayed or blocked by litigation. The main aspects of this bill include the following:
- An Officer will need to be present at the camera location as a witness for a ticket to be issued.
Redflex bribed Chicago official by giving kickbacks on RLC tickets in return for the contract.
