These bastards still make you pay even if you are innocent.
I go down to Florida on holidays twice a year and came across the following which shows all locations for RLC in Broward, Palm Beach & Miami-Dade counties
Starting today, red-light runners face fines instead of warnings on Palm Beach County roads that have new red-light cameras.
The intersections targeted by cameras include: Lantana Road at Jog Road west of Lantana; Palmetto Park Road at Powerline Road; and southbound Powerline Road at Palmetto Park Road, west of Boca Raton.
"Eight cameras were installed by the county over the past month, a number that is expected to reach 25 by the end of the year and 72 by August "

This originated in my state (TX):
I am seeing a lot of small towns in TN more and more having red light cameras.
I hate the principle behing these revenue enhancers.
I have just registered and will be posting locations as I travel.
Vote the local yahoos out of office for installing these--just make sure you let them and everyone else know why.
The suit argues that ATS used Hazelwood Police Chief Carl Wolf to head Missouri Families for Safer Roads (MFSR), a front group created to enhance the revenue generation efforts of ATS.
Anybody surprised by this?
National Coalition for Safer Roads Run by American Traffic Solutions
Documents show independent organization supporting red light cameras actually run by photo ticketing firm.
City of Peoria, AZ council members decided to let the contract with Redflex Traffic Systems to expire and will not renew the contract. The red light cameras are scheduled to be turned off on October 3rd.
These excellent those oppose RLC and believe the RLC are more generating source for Redlfex, ATS and local municipalities. I prefer a speed trap anytime over a camera.
I got the one on La Cholla, has anyone got the other 3 new cams on the east and south sides yet?
Bradenton, FL has several red light cameras now. I will see about getting the locations and posting here
From WTOP.com: "Police have flipped the switch on 19 new speed cameras in the District. The cameras have been placed on sites where a high number of crashes and calls for police service have occurred. A 30-day warning period is currently in effect for the cameras. Police will issue violations starting Oct. 1."

I was just wondering whether the 32 redlight cameras in Los Angeles City have been removed from the list since they have already pulled the plug starting August of this year.

TAMPA | Drivers in Tampa, beware: cameras are starting to go up at some of Tampa's busiest intersections and fines will be more than $150 for running a red light.
In the Aug.31,2011 editon of the Orange County Register, the Assembly voted 50-3 to require that red-light cameras be usesd for public safety and not to generate revenue from traffic fines.
Article in the National Review about Red Light Cameras.
...Mayor Bloomberg contended that there is an economic advantage to enforcement cameras, as they are cheaper than employing more people. This is undoubtedly true. But leaving aside cameras’ lack of capacity for common sense and discretion, there is a real cost to reliance on technology.
I don't think anyone posted this link yet, I'm not trying to change opinions or even form them. Since Mayor Bloomberg had indicated he wants lights at all intersection he might want to reconsider and put police officers at them instead, if he has all the violators cited motorist, pedestrians, and bicyclist, he might actually get a balanced budget for NYC.
Saw a postal vehicle blow an intersection today. Thinking that it has no plates anyway or the union protects them.
