Red-light cameras are snapping up violations

Nov 28, 2007 | Posted by: A liberal dose | Full story: A liberal dose

Nearly 3,000 motorists have been caught running the red light at Watson Road and Avenue H in Arlington since cameras were installed in June. The seven Arlington intersections with red-light cameras have racked up a total of nearly 9,500 red-light violations in the last five months.

In North Richland Hills, about 2,700 red-light runners have been tallied since its cameras went live in May. Most of those violations came from the intersection at Rufe Snow Drive and Dick Lewis Drive. And this week, Fort Worth activated cameras at seven intersections. Read more

What happens when your kid who is in college runs a red light and the car is in your name?(they make the payments and pay their own insurance) Just wondering what it is going to take to make sure it does not go on the wrong driving record.
Then thats to bad my freind it,s all part of the sytem. And they have heard all teh excuses in the wrold and you people amaze me trying to place the blame on your own kid??? Well maybe not but regardless you are responable for your own kid my man. Therefore you pay the fine. The car is yours you nitwitted fool and you make the rules on that car and you agree to let him drive it, therefore when he runs a red light it,s you that pays the fine. Seems fair to me. Oh and by the way people do you know how many stupid excuses people are coming up with to get out of the red light ticket???Geee I think it,s funny that there is nothing that can really be done. The fact is you fool don,t run a red light are make it clear to your kid not to run one. Your the owner of that car!

saw a guy talking on his cell phone bust through a stop sign this morning while I was driving to work. Most of those morons survive but they take out the innocent law abiding drivers.

if the camera catches them talking on the cellphone while running the light,
the fine should be tripled.

Just costs me about 50 bucks for a plate that's invisible to the cameras, then about 100 bucks for a device that warns me when I'm approaching a camera-monitored intersection and I'm all set.
why didn't you save ur $150 bucks and just stop at the red light? Guess that's asking too much.

<quoted text> I run the show on this forum my friend. Now about the red lights if you don,t run them you don,t get tickets and by the way freind these lights work properly and are very fair.
I was stopped at a red light at the intersection of Grapevine Hwy and Mid-Cities Blvd when a silver SUV slammed into me going about 25 miles an hour. I pulled off to the left into the 99 Cent store parking lot hoping they would follow but they took off. There appeared to be cameras pointed both directions there.

The police told me they were sensors not cameras and I was out of luck. Any ideas how to find this person?

check other cameras down the road--maybe store cameras might cover the roadway--bound to be some.

The problem, which is rarely addressed by the unsuspecting sleepers, is that the increased police state and Orwellian tactics to surveille and keep tabs on the citizens leads towards less rights and an over-arching tyranical government acting as watchdog and parent to enforce these blatantly silly corporate violations. Please wake up. That is all we need, machines to police us when the tyrants cannot. The sleeper awakes in Denton. 777

You mean to tell me you people are still on this topic? yeaaa don,t run a red light stupid and you people won,t have that problem. Only nuts and scewballs complaine about a simple red light camera. are you retarted? I haveseen some the nut cased people that go flying down rufe snow and then they wonder why a cop givesthem a ticket. I,am sorry to be this way toward people but i have no respect for people who blame everything on cops and then whine about redlight cameras. Don,t worrie about the bad grammer my friend as i,am way more richer and smarter then you will ever be. And last but least take all these whinning idiots of yours and start talking about another topic. I love the redlight cameras and i laugh when you people get picture taken by them. Get a life.

After they get your picture, they send you a letter, asking for fine payment. They provide a video to prove it but, the video isn't clear.

You can still go to court to protest it, if you can take off work to do it.
Now, the traffic court is so busy, you have to make an appointment to fight the ticket.
