Description

This series observes red-light cameras and if they are improving safety or becoming money makers for the government. The series took a closer look at who gets tickets and why, where the revenue goes, how the locations for the cameras are chosen, how to appeal the tickets received, and if they have improved safety conditions. One of the major findings is these cameras are not being installed at intersections with a high accident rates, instead being placed in high traffic areas.
