Put these cameras at every intersection. I'm amazed at all the drivers that break the laws and wish you'd catch them all.

Hardly surprising -- I can't fathom how often I get honked at for coming to a complete stop before making a right turn on red. At best most drivers view it as a "stoption"; at worst it's barely a yield sign.

And I think that last clip in the video was an unmarked cop car swinging around the stopped car in the right turn lane.

shocking what people will do. you will get caught. put more cameras up. if you notice a flash while turning illegally you are on video and a $ 100 fine will be in your mailbox shortly.

You mean they're not just colorful traffic suggestions?

Crashes up 57%! Sure we need more of them.

Oh sure "more cameras is what we need" let's keep linig the pockets of these public officials while our safety is at risk. Are you people not able to afford buying a clue? Well at least educate your selves and look at numbers before and after cameras before spewing out a HIGHLY uneducated opinion.

Hey judi, ever get rear ended (pun) maybe you need to!
