Some Cities Are Getting Sneaky With The Red Light Cameras

I hear from a lot of people who oppose the 'Photo Red' cameras in Spokane that take pictures of people who run red lights, then send the drivers expensive tickets. Some people accuse the City of using the cameras not to promote safety, but to drum up revenue.

Well, this article from CNET News is going to get those folks going. It talks about a sneaky trick that some cities (there are even some cities named) are employing to catch more drivers running red lights. Not Spokane, of course.
