I hate to even bring up the subject of red light cameras anymore because they get such a heated response, but they’re back in the news again.
Q6 News reports that at least two legislators in Washington State want to reduce the amount of fines from automated traffic systems known as red light cameras. A House Bill aims to cut the fine from $124 down to just $25. Here’s the Q6 article.
Do you think $25 is enough of a fine to teach a red-light runner a lesson? I know a lot of people say these are just a money maker for the city, but the money actually goes to be used only for traffic safety projects.
