    Yes we do but fortunately they don't face the direction I am ususally going. I am approaching intersections more slowly than ever. It's a $100 a pop here!

  • Oh yeah!

    In Chicago we gottem all over the place. I got nabbed once for an intersection I do pass sometimes, but don't remember violating. But months later I got a letter from the city in the mail with a ticket inside; included were 3 photos of my car:

    a close up of my license plate

    a shot of the front of my car crossing the pedestrain line; one red light

    a shot of my entire car flying thru the cross; 3 red lights

    I could dispute nothing!

    You know when your busted at the scene because at the moment you cross too late, a bright white light from the cameras blazes the intersection

    I once saw 3 cars in a row run a red arrow to turn left, you would've thought it was the 4th of July!

    yes we do. I live just outside of Washington DC.

    I heard a funny red light cam stroy on the radio:

    These lights were tried first in Chicago (true). Well it seems that a man got a ticket in the mail with a photo of his car running a red light. It was a $50. ticket. He sent into the police station a photo of a $50. bill. They sent him back a photo of handcuffs. He paid the ticket.

    You should ask people where they are from. It will answer your question.

    Yes!! When the light is turning yellow you have to stomp the gas and go or slam on the brakes to stop so you don't get a ticket. The rear end of my car was under the light when it turned red, later that week I got a $50 ticket in the mail :)

    I hate them, mainly because I got a ticket sent to my house with my picture driving right through a red light. But, it was yellow when I started through.

    Yes. I worked for a police dept. when the town installed the cameras. We never even looked at them. They are such a waste. Who is going to watch them 24 hours a day?
