Avoiding red light ticket cameras is the only way to keep from getting into an accident or gettingRead Morea n unfair $100 tax bill in the mail. Tell all the merchants in town that you will not shop in their stores until the cameras come down. Cameras represent the worst type of government decision, and the officials in Abington responsible for the light ticket cameras should be voted out. Tom McCarey

Most red light camera systems also ticket safe slow rolling right on red turns that federalRead Moreresearch shows are involved in only 0.06% of all crashes with an injury or fatality and only 0.4% of crashes at signalized intersections. One way to be certain you do not get a right on red ticket is to REFUSE to turn right on red at all. Some drivers behind you may not like the fact you are being 100% ticket free for right on red turns, but it is not required to turn right on red. James C.

This is ALL about money. All you need to do is have 85th percentile free-flowing traffic speedRead Morelimi ts, use longer yellow times, have a decent length all-red interval, and sensors to keep an all-red for late arrivals. No crashes! You can also sync lights and use sensors to keep smooth flow. What is the point of using poor engineering with predatory enforcement, if not 100% revenue? You can easily find data showing cameras lead to more crashes and safe drivers ticketed. The way it is setup, you have split-second violations, tickets for stops barely past the stop line, AND violations for a non-complete stop for a right-on-red turn. Simple things such as where exactly the intersection starts may vary by location. I will NOT patronize ANY business in town in any way. I will also drive around the cameras. What the township is doing is driving away people who pass through the area and want for it to succeed. I am aware of a few people from the National Motorists Association who provided extensive traffic data to the officials in town, but of course, it was all ignored. Why would that be?
