How about they take that money and hire a traffic engineer to re-time their lights to include one additional second of yellow time, which will reduce red light running more than red light cameras ever have any hope of doing.

It's all about generating money.

How about taking that money and use it to replace the city stickers and dog taxes that we Des Plaines residents pay annually. That's giving back to the community!
