People Who Run Red Lights
Lately I have notice that people are running red lights more. On Fosterburg & 120 a corner near our home is a very bad corner for accidents and they keep running the lights. I have made it a habit to wait for the cars to stop before going because there are so many of those who run the light.
I have noticed that there are other areas where people run the light. I can understand why cities want red light camera but I don’t think that is the cure to the problem. I am against red light cameras but I think if the police would monitor these corners more that it could cure this problem. I personally can almost tell you the best time you could catch the most offenders.
I can’t tell you how many times I have avoided an accident on my corner by just pausing a few seconds after the light has changed. These folks are not running these lights on yellow. The light is a solid red before the get to the light and they are going through them on red.
Are you one of these offenders? I try to write down their plate numbers but before I can get around the corner they are miles down the road and I would have to break speed laws to catch them and then the police would probably stop me and they would get a pass.
Let me hear from you on this subject.
