One thing’s for certain, traffic light cameras have been controversial since coming into Knoxville, TN Proponents of the traffic light cameras have argued that roads are safer with their presence and revenue for the city is increased. Opponents argue that they are unconstitutional and argue against the “big brother” mentality of our local government. There’s also a controversy with the compensation the private contractors receive which depends on the number of tickets generated from the cameras.
There is one good thing that I can offer up – it does not count against your auto insurance rates due to the fact that the camera violations don’t go on your driving record.
Anyone out there got thoughts on the issue of traffic light cameras?
