So lets review:
- These cameras are extremely intrusive, and violate the privacy of motorists.
- The purpose of these cameras is to generate revenue and not advance safety.
- They seem to cause more rear-end collisions while slightly reducing accidents cause by people running lights
- The cameras don't even generate much revenue, in fact some cameras don't even pay for themselves.
I believe that the city needs to increase revenue to maintain its budget. It just needs to find another way to do it.
