Red light cameras are a violation of our rights. You have the right to face your accuser. Good luck getting the camera to appear in court. All they can do is produce a photo of you entering the intersection after the light turned red. They don't have the intelligence to determine if you had a valid reason, such as moving for an emergency vehicle. They can't even determine if it was you who was driving the car. You can be punished for someone else's crime. How would you feel if your car was stolen and you received a ticket in the mail? Talk about adding insult to injury.
Red light cameras are not about public safety. Red light cameras are about revenue. City's even go as far as to shorten the time between when the signal turns yellow and when it turns red to trick motorists into tripping the cameras. The safety of motorists should never be risked like that for revenue. We all already pay taxes. Our city's should not be fining us to enable administrators fat cat lives.
These people, however, came up with something you can do about it. Avoid Costly Traffic Tickets. Make Your Car Invisible to Red Light and Speed Cameras. With this product you can protect yourself from overzealous government entrapment. It works by creating a glare on your car that makes your tag illegible in the pictures taken by red light cameras.
