OT: Red Light Camera Ticket

Page 3 of 3  


So you have a database of RLC & speed cameras so that..what? You'll know which lights you can run and when you can drive faster than the 5 - 10 MPH usually allowed over the speed limit?
OK, let's be reasonable and leave out the speeding issue (I'm certainly no goody-2-shoes in that regard) by why would you need a database of Red light Cameras? Do you really plan to run the one's that aren't monitored?

So I slow down below the posted speed limit when approaching those intersections, so I don't get caught in the "dilemma zone" where I have a choice between panic stopping and "running" the red light.

But if there isn't a camera you don't give a shit.
You really -are- interested in safety! -----

If there isn't a camera, barring the presence of slower traffic or inclement weather, there's no compelling reason to slow below the posted, unless there's a yellow or red light showing.
You do know what a dilemma zone is, and why it's undesirable for it to exist in the first place, don't you?
Oh, wait, never mind.

We had red-light cameras here in Houston. Sufficient citizens signed a petition to put removing them up to a plebiscite. Kill, murder, death to red light cameras passed by a wide margin. Even then, the mayor declined to remove them!
After threatening to sue her and everybody she ever knew, the red light cameras finally came down.

I recently drove about 2300 miles in Italy. I did not see any cameras for red lights, but speed cameras are all over the place, worse than flies on horse shit. I was driving a rental, but I'm expecting a thick package in the mail one day with a list of cameras I passed.
I was on my good behavior on the Autostrade, but the speed limit is a sensible 130 km/H, 81 MPH.
The issue has been brought up here in CT recently. It is a revenue enhancer more than a safety issue.
