I've seen people stop short to avoid venturing into an amber and get rear-ended.

totally against...just more cost to cities and private companies getting information on people, they should not have. We have enough issues with personal information with city,state and federal agencies, do not need to add anymore private agencies into the mix.

Illinois Man Sues Over Chicago Redflex Fraud
Crime should not pay, says an Illinois motorist, regarding red-light camera vendor Redflex Traffic Systems. Matthew G. Falkner, an investment banker, argues that the Australia firm unjustly enriched itself to the tune of $100 million from vehicle owners in Chicago through bribery and corruption. He does not want them to get away with it.

It is only for revenue generation. Many red light cameras are also speed on green cameras here.

California City Has Second Thoughts About Red-Light Cameras
Red-light cameras are disappearing rapidly from California streets as city councils around the state are disappointed with the performance of the devices and disturbed by admissions of bribery and other corruption. The city of Del Mar could be the next city to say farewell to automated ticketing machines. The latest city budget shows the program is losing money, with the drop in revenue attributed to “the change in standards for enforcement.”

North Carolina: Fayetteville’s plan for red-light camera system may violate N.C. constitution
Fayetteville’s plan to install a red-light camera system that pays for itself with proceeds from fines may violate the North Carolina constitution. Instead of allowing a city or town to make money from the tickets it issues, the North Carolina Constitution specifies that the “clear proceeds” from fines are to be given to the public schools. That could jeopardize two bills pending before the General Assembly to help the city bring back the cameras after an eight-year hiatus.

Ohio Justices Skeptical Of Toledo Red-Light Camera Program
Justices seemed unconvinced as lawyers for Toledo and Redflex Traffic Systems of Australia made a pitch last week to preserve their business during oral arguments before the Ohio Supreme Court. Redflex mails $8 million per year worth of photo tickets, so Toledo’s city attorney told the high court that there would be “untold consequences” if the appeals process set up to streamline adjudication of them were ruled unconstitutional.

Another California Jury Indicts Red-Light Cameras
The Yuba County, California grand jury on Tuesday issued a report blasting the red-light camera program in Marysville. The citizens chosen to investigate the program analyzed every claim made by city officials, taking nothing for granted. The report documents a number of ways in which the city and its vendor, Redflex Traffic Systems, have been stretching the truth.

Not a fan of being videotaped or photographed for any reason, much less to find fault.

Colorado: Red-light cameras tough to turn off, despite growing opposition
Red-light cameras have generated millions in revenue for towns and cities across the country. Efforts to limit or ban them have proliferated, but like many government programs, are difficult to shut down. “Looking at standard traffic engineering practices, and making sure the intersections comply with those practices is really the way to go,” said John Bowman, spokesman for the National Motorists Association.
