I hate the cameras! I have never gotten a ticket from one, but where I live rush hour intersection accidents have gone up! I'm glad I live close to where I work!

I'm no fan - but they create both revenue for cities and profits for suppliers - so they will not be going away any time soon.

I don't drive much because I don't have a car. But when me and my mom rent one we do pay attention. Plus these people drive crazy up here I would not even want to have to deal with anything.

No, we don't have those here and I am glad. They scare me, sometimes it's safer to drift through a yellow light than slam on the breaks.

I'm not a fan of those cameras neither; but ever since the red light cameras were installed in my city, accidents have been reduced and busy intersections are free of blocking traffic.

We have a lot around here. I'm still not convinced that they are all that great.

We have them. I have not gotten a ticket though, I try to not run red lights.

While I don't like cameras; they come in handy for those who aren't following the driving laws. These laws are in place for a reason. So, it only makes sense that you should follow these laws at all times.

My mom got a speeding ticket from one of the traffic camera's and she was mad about it. But whose fault was it?? Her's, she was the one speeding. The cameras are there for safety reasons just like the driving laws.

I can't tell you how many times we have seen accidents, or nearly been in one ourselves because people don't know the rules for driving. Pay attention and follow the driving laws and you have nothing to worry about.

Someone turning on a red light almost cost my hubby his life. Instead he walks around with bulging discs (4 to be exact) and steel plates in his neck. He's in constant pain.

We don't have them here, but I don't think it would be a bad idea to have them.

I think they are an ok idea but the car owner gets the fine not the driver

We have them. They should go away. Not gonna go into a rant, but it's a privacy violation and a slippery slope down to what else they'll start putting cameras on and for.

We don't have them and I'm glad we don't. I don't think I'd really get in trouble, but I would worry.

I don't agree that they invade privacy in any way it is a public road. If someone does a hit and run on that intersection then they are caught regaurdless. and as far as they owner of the car getting the fine if you can prove you weren't driving the car and know who was then you can fight it.

I have to agree with freeing up the blocked intersections; I now try to avoid them at all possibility!

How about cameras in drones high in the sky? No more privacy!

I have no idea if my town has red light cameras. I've never gotten a ticket from one, but I also don't make it a habit to run red lights!

we don't have any in our town but there are some in surrounding counties. There have been several bad wrecks and it showed that one person had run the red light and it was caught on tape. Never gotten a ticket from one

We don't have it where I live, but I've lived in other places that do.

We have them in town and at least one of the burbs. They don't bother me; it's just one of many times you're caught on camera each day. Every store has them inside - and in the parking lot. These days, there's a pretty good chance your workplace has them. Hotels, buses, subways... the list goes on.

The part that gets me is pics/video are always terrible! If you've ever watched TruTv, the vids are always so grainy and out of focus, you wouldn't recognize your own mother in them. My dad's 8mm cam from the 60s makes better vids!

My husband said that he doesn't think so but, not sure. It's a small town.

We don't have any where I live, but there are plenty in the town where I work. Not sure I've ever really thought about how I feel about them. I kind of just view them as a deal with it situation. Nobody asked me if I wanted them up and nobody is going to ask me to take them down. It doesn't really affect how I drive.

They took them down for whatever reason where I live.

Actually, this is a good question. This was something I was having a discussion about recently--privacy. I do think it's a violation of people's privacy to be able to see inside their vehicles. Your car is like your home. You should be able to be comfortable in their without having these kinds of worries. Don't get me wrong, I'm serious when it comes to safe driving. I'm 22 and drive like an over-cautious granny. I get that from my dad though and it makes me a more aware driver so I'm fine with it.

I totally understand that speeding is dangerous, driving too slow is dangerous, drinking or TEXTING (dumb!) is dangerous and yes, these things should be looked out for. However, it's going too far when cameras can see in your car. I don't want photos or myself in my car or my children. This upsets me a lot because I tend to get... really comfortable in the car. I hike my legs up with my dresses on. I don't care. Nobody can see in there. Of course, I fix myself when we're at a redlight, but a car should be private not public. We have a lot of fun with our weekly mini road trips and now, I can't even enjoy it. It's not like we have sex while driving, but I love my travel vibes and enjoying them while he drives. Now, we have to lookout for stupid cameras.

My opinion is if cameras are a must, they should NOT be able to see inside your car. I feel the same about that airport crap. Good thing I don't ever plan on flying! I don't want my privacy invaded and violated any more than it already has been in my life.

No--the area I live in is too rural and a bit behind the times on stuff like this.
