I'm hopeful they won't give me the ticket now. I honestly have no idea how these red light cameras "save lives." If anything, I think these cameras cause more accidents than prevent them. I almost got into one due to one of these cameras. I'm also a very good driver and just because someone gets a ticket from one of these cameras doesn't make them a bad driver. Just another way our govt is trying to make a quick buck.

I heard that they were actually supposed to take them down for that reason (not like it will actually happen). In Chicago I heard they caused way too many accidents by people slamming on their brakes to avoid the camera.

Just like anything else, if you leave them there a while the people will follow the rules do what's right.

Just so you know.....

"Who knew L.A.'s red-light camera fines were 'voluntary'?
Drivers who paid the tickets, some of which are $476, fume at the disclosure that authorities cannot force violators to pay up. But don't expect to get a refund.

City officials this week spotlighted a surprising revelation involving red-light camera tickets: Authorities cannot force violators who simply don't respond to pay them. For a variety of reasons, including the way the law was written, Los Angeles officials say the fines for ticketed motorists are essentially "voluntary" and there are virtually no tangible consequences for those who refuse to pay."

I somewhat agree with there being a fine but $100+ is outrageous. They do prevent accidents as well as cause them. Whats bogus about them as that they go off even if you cross the crosswalk and turn on red (even if you are allowed to) without coming to a COMPLETE stop!
