This position paper evaluates the growing use of red light cameras (RLCs) across the United States and the growing concerns associated with this technology. RLCs are quite simply the installation of cameras at traffic intersections that are designed to photograph and catch drivers that run red lights. In a perfect world, the use of RLCs would appear to be innocent enough and encourage safety on our roads. However, the growing use of RLCs has created many problems. There are three main issues (legality, safety, and money) that have arisen from the introduction of RLCs. This study found that despite all of the concerns about the legality of RLCs, they have withstood most of the challenges against them.
