Red-light cameras caused problems for Cary on several fronts, so the town council decided this month to get rid of them.
Raleigh's red-light camera program is different from Cary's. It survived a brush with extinction last year when some city council members wanted to get rid of it. But somehow, these robot ticket-writers have been less controversial in Raleigh than in Cary. How come? (8/14/12 update: see today's Road Worrier with reader comments.)
I'm writing about Raleigh's red-light cameras today. If you've received one of these $50 tickets in the last year or two, I'd like to hear from you. Was it fair? Were you guilty? Do you think these cameras make our intersections safer? Or do you think Raleigh should unplug its red-light cameras, too?
