- These red light cameras are revenue raisers pure and simple. Statistically they do nothing to reduce accidents. Furthermore, there is no due process for the driver who is de facto summarily punished. It's a scam.
- What happens when the lights are malfunctioning? Wednesday, the 27th of February, I was at that intersection, Making a left turn onto University. The light was green only for 3-5 seconds. The yellow light wasn't long enough for your brain to register and make the stop. At least 1 if not 2 cars behind me went through the yellow to red light. If that wasn't bad enough, the lights at Airport Road and Old Bradenton Road only allowed 3 cars to get through the lights. I don't think anyone should be issued tickets when the lights aren't functioning properly.
