Photoenforced.com: 1,000+ Red-light camera locations

He_banner

This unique website lists over 1,000 intersections around the U.S. with red-light cameras.

But wait, there's more.

The fines for running each one are also posted.

So you can decide, in advance, if it's worth it.

Red-light cameras, it turns out, are not quite the unabated force for good they seemed at first.

But then, what โ€“ or who โ€“ is?

I remember an attorney telling me, years ago, something that seemed a revelation at the time, but has become one of my most cherished old saws.

He said, "A client's story never sounds better than the first time you hear it."

Beyond profound โ€“ and not just for lawyers. But I digress.

The New York Times had a story in its Circuits section on January 6 about the increased number of rear-end collisions at intersections with red-light cameras, as people slam on their brakes at high speed.

One of the traffic experts quoted observed that it was much better to be rear-ended at 10 m.p.h. than T-boned at 40; true enough, I suppose.
