L.A. May Remove Red Light Cameras

Los Angeles may be the next U.S. city to remove it's red light cameras. Police Commissioners there voted to kill the city's controversial red-light camera program, for the same reasons folks around here tell me they don't like them. Those reasons include a lack of evidence to backup claims that the cameras increase safety and decrease collisions and concerns that they are simply a money maker, not a safety measure. The L.A. Times has the story.
