It seems that the Houston "red light cameras" will be turned back on despite the will of the people. Go figure. Easy revenue for the city will not be given up easily or gladly by the powers that be. Of course these things do not save lives and I believe that they are a danger to public safety. People know they are there and bust through a yellow at high speed to not get "caught." Real surprised that some pedestrian has not been plowed over due to this crap.
There is also a bit of a constitutional issue I do believe. Running a red light is technically a crime and every American has the right to face the accuser in a court of law. In other words if a cop gives you a ticket for running and you believe yourself to be innocent, then you can go to court and even request a jury trial. The whole works. Running a red light and getting "busted" by the camera is considered by the "city" to be a civil offense. They are wrong and they are scamming the driving public.
I suggest if one gets a red light camera ticket to just ignore the thing. There is no real consequence (yet) for not paying the extortion money.
