Re: “Red-light camera debate returning to the Missouri Legislature

For bill
If the yellow intervals were timed properly long enough for the actual approach speeds of vehicles, there would not be enough violations to even pay just the cameras' costs.

Red light cameras exist ONLY with deliberately improper and less-safe traffic light engineering. It is why they need to be banned, so cities will engineer for safety and NOT for ticket camera profits.

Re: “Red-light camera debate returning to the Missouri Legislature

Henry is right on the simple engineering changes that reduce red light violations.

Unfortunately, many cities don't want to reduce violations. They want the MONEY from using red light cameras. Yellow intervals are set too short, some cities ticket safe slow rolling right on red turns, and if crashes go up at camera intersections because people panic brake to avoid tickets - the cities just don't care. All that matters is MONEY.

Any legislative method to eliminate the scam of red light camera cash registers is OK. Then cities will no longer have a financial incentive to use cameras instead of using proper intersection engineering to improve safety and reduce violations.

Re: “Red-light camera debate returning to the Missouri Legislature

Red light cameras have never been about safety, they are about money. They are a for-profit business partnership between a camera company and a city.

If this bill passes and the profits go away, the cameras will go away. Then everyone will understand what the true motives were in the first place. They did not include safety.
