"NMA’s Bowman agrees that encouraging drivers to stop at red lights “is a worthy goal and has important safety benefits.”
“But pushing red-light cameras as a way to do it is not in anyone’s best interest, except for those who benefit from the ticket revenue produced by those cameras.”
An article in today’s Baltimore Sun states that in Howard County (Maryland), as many as 600% of all cars going through an intersection are speeding. At least according to data provided to the county by Xerox.
After driving for a week in Toronto, I almost wonder why rlc's is even a discussion? There were a bunch of rlc's in Toronto and Scarborough, but even in places they were absent, people attempted to stop on yellow (countdown timers) and they came to complete stops at stop signs, and yielded to pedestrians.
Why is it so different there?
The city of Tampa is adding six new cameras at two different intersections.

I appreciate the effort someone or some people are putting in to keep the RLC's updated.
Where I live, a few years ago they moved the cameras around but left the box that housed it in place. So you never knew if there was one or not. Now they seem to put a sign up warning you of a RED LIGHT enforcement camera.

So I was trolling around sites just trying to find out if the RLC locations were being disclosed by official agencies, just because...
So I came across this recent press release from NY's AAA
Suffolk County, located on Long Island, New York is in the process of moving many of its RLC's to new locations. Although county leaders claim it is because they have effectively controlled traffic at the prior locations, the real reason is that revenue ($80 per ticket) is drying up as motorists learn the locations.
According to news article, Maryland lawmakers have passed a law that severely restricts speed camera use in MD. Hard to believe MD legislature finally got something right! See:

I wonder if anyone has kept track of the number of redlight camera locations as an indicator if they are still increasing in number or if they are decreasing.
I have seen numerous stories lately where cities that had installed them are removing them due to losing money ion them
