    Just wait until you are the one that Big Brother got on camera! We all err in judgment at sometime or another and, as usual, the govt is waiting right there to pull on your purse strings!! And, there is no fighting back. I can see where this will easily cause safety issues and create more problems for the "people", while "the man" rakes in that money. My suggestion is to drive as safely as possible and avoid those intersections as much as possible. If you must drive through them slow down to 8 mph and be prepared to STOP!!! That light changes real quick like!! And just remember the commissioners who brought this brand of "justice" to our fair city at election time.

    @James: I totally agree. If you rear-end someone, it's because you were following too closely. Drivers should always be prepared to stop safely.

    In response to 'Yeah'...I mean come on. I know your joking, but the cameras are not a joke. Rear end crashes are not a result of the cameras, they are a result of people not paying attention to the driver/situation in front of them.

    I think this whole idea is good. all the attention makes people think about their habits behind the wheel.

    It is about time. Everytime I see one of these cameras, they remind me that I need to pay more attention to my driving. I am gald to have them out there. Far too often I get distracted by other things, mainly my own thoughts.

    I'm glad they're beefing up the program - I'm seeing some different driving on the streets and really think cameras are making a difference.

    Glad I know where they all are now. Safe driving everyone!

    Glad they're expanding the coverage. Now more intersections will be safer for drivers.
