Are the Red Light Cameras for Safety or Revenue?

    Some red-light cameras are employed as safety devices. We have a few
    here at historically-dangerous intersections, and they have helped.
    However, in the more typical situation, the company that makes the
    camera system approaches a local government and makes them an offer
    they find difficult to refuse in times of shrinking budgets: let them
    install cameras and process the resulting tickets, the company keeps
    most of the ticket revenue, and the government receives a cut off the
    top. If the tickets don't meet the company's revenue goals (i.e., if
    the cameras actually work, and people stop running red lights), then
    the company shortens the yellow phase so more drivers will be caught
    running the red. In the best tradition of American business, the scheme
    combines ruthless capitalism with the artificial manipulation of supply
    and demand. Gottaluvit! If is as advertised this
    product called photoblocker spray is our rescuer. They state that it
    was tested by the media on their website
    On the videos, it also shows the police saying that it really works by
    making your license plate invisible to traffic cameras.

    As a person who has been hit by someone who sped up to run a red light and
    was hit from the side at about 100kph I say put them on every intersection,
    I believe the yellow has to be a minium time of three seconds, if you are
    within the solid line before the stop line and you are travelling at the
    speed limit you can make it cross before the light turns red, other wise you
    have plenty of time to stop. I have tested this on bikes in cars, 4X4's and
    trucks and found it to be correct. But if you wish to speed and/or run
    lights please feel free to do so.

    Found a simple solution from the cameras, and do not pay fines

    I ordered it for car numbers, I also want to order it on a motorcycle!

    Has anyone tried number stickers?
