    Good, this way their won't be as many intersections where drivers think they can get away with it.

    I can't complain, I actually think the cameras are good ideas. They monitor intersections and allow police to focus on other enforcement efforts.

    Thank you for publishing the locations! Now no one has room to complain - you know exactly where the cameras are. Drive responsibly!

    This issue always brings out the nuts from both sides of the issue - all I know is that it's our fault for them being installed in the first place - we have become such bad drivers and government was just itching for a way to bring their safety records back in line.

    I have seen far too many morbid statistics about red light runners, so I am all for the added surveillance in hopes that people learn that running a red light is not a harmless act and can end very badly.

    keep publishing the locations of these systems . that makes them just that much more affective. It will definitely change driving habits over time.

    Until we elect some trustworthy, responsible officials, we deserve every crooked law they throw at us!
