BUT I THOUGHT RED-LIGHT CAMERAS WERE ALL ABOUT SAFETY:
DALLAS – Dallas has turned off about 15 red-light cameras used to monitor busy intersections. The city said the cameras are failing to generate enough red-light-running fines to justify their costs.
Dallas lawmakers originally estimated a gross yearly revenue of about $15 million for the system. The city is about $4 million below that estimate.
Safety second, revenue first, apparently. The numbers on Knoxville’s redlight cameras don’t look so good either.
