#1 I always figured red-light cameras were a voluntary tax contribution program.
My last time was a human, and I thought I was in the right, by five feet, but the cop didn't want to hear about it. I have been more careful, since then.

#2 Lets not forget that shortening the time the light is 'yellow' is very likely to cause more accidents.
When they install a red-light-camera and shorten the yellow light timing you know that they are not interested in safety - just revenue.
Here in Lynnwood Washington they ding you if you make a 'hollywood stop' as well (that is don't come to a complete and total stop).

#4 Ironic, here in Iowa I've noticed Yellow Light times have increased after the camera's have gone in. Regional thing or we aren't a bunch of greedy union thugs?
