Red-light Cameras in Texas
Of course, you'll have to neglect incidents like this. Lubbock Texas plans to install red-light cameras on a bunch of lights with shorter-than-normal yellows and makes the city engineer promise not to lengthen them because it will cut into revenues. Literally, they are compromising the safety of the lights to make more money off of them. Don't buy it? Adding a second to the time reduces both accidents and profits. But apparently the safety of its citizens is a secondary concern to the government of Lubbock. Congrats, you greedy bastards.
But remember, lights are not about profits, they're about safety.
