So, basically, your relative is in private enterprise trying to make a living on the backs of already cash strapped citizens?

I know the cities aren't making any money on these sales scams.

Whenever I feel like I've been wronged by a red light cam, I rewatch the footage online, as you can do, and realize that I was indeed in the wrong. It's humbling since I'm very vocal about how much I despise the tickets in the city.

My wife once got a notice from Hometown, IL saying she had made an improper right turn. We watched the video - the car wasn't even hers. If you have any kind of a doubt it doesn't hurt to call them and contest it.

Watch the area around Midway Airport, they have red light cameras at every intersection.

Red light cameras cause a lot more rear-end accidents when they are at the light.

Just another way for cities to tax people.

I hate them, but only because I constantly roll through. If you don't like them, I would imagine you are a law breaker same as me. Just sayin.

The red light cameras are a sin. They are spreading the the suburbs too, all over!

I'm someone will go on a rampage one day and start destroying them. You know, you can get a map online where they are all located...

Not trying to plant any seeds or anything...

It's so simple. Just stop at a red stop light.
