Red-light cameras: Talk talk

Tallahassee recently installed some red-light cameras at intersections where drivers regularly drive through red lights.

Here, as in other communities, the debate over the cameras was hot.

There are legitimate reasons to question whether we should have cameras everywhere, though that line was crossed years ago (Wal-Mart keeps customers under camera scrutiny, McDonald’s does, too, as do most chain retail stores … why is not clear).

Here is a video by the Traffic Safety Coalition that pairs some of the arguments against the cameras with some video from the streets where cameras are in place.

No cyclists in the video, but two pedestrians get taken out by red-light runners, one in chilling fashion in the first driving scene.
