LA Tarone had noted guest Noah Pransky on his show to talk about red-light cameras and how in Florida, it seemed they wanted to ticket as many people as humanly possible for absurd things. You decide what was intentional and what was accidental. Poor traffic engineering and predatory enforcement are not good:
There is no question, it IS all about revenue.
St. Petersburg just disabled their red light cameras a few weeks ago. Hopefully, activist like Pransky will help put an end to them throughout not only Florida, but everywhere. BTW, crashes at intersections in St. Petersburg with red light cameras went up 13% after the cameras were installed. That was reported to be a major factor in their decision to remove them.
Very good interview, thanks for sharing the link with us.
