    Default Los Angeles Gets Rid of Red Light Cameras!!!

    The Los Angeles Police Commission recently voted 5-0 to get rid of the 32 red light cameras at intersections around the City of Los Angeles, because the cameras don't increase safety and were not generating revenue for the city.

    Today the L.A. City Council tried to vote to overrule the Police Commission, but the vote fell short, so the Red Light Cameras will be removed when the current contract ends on July 31, 2011. Yay for the good guys!!!

    So they're losing money for the city and making it more dangerous?

    Or just "kept the same level of safety"?

    I'm actually surprised they don't generate revenue...

    Maybe Chicago will learn a lesson from this and take a good look at theirs too.

    Of course they're not generating revenue- they have to keep replacing them because people keep shooting them out! L.A...

    I'm glad it didn't pass. It's just another example of "invasion of privacy", especially when they snap pictures of the drivers & passengers.
