The article "Eye in the Sky" (News, Nov. 22) misses the point. Red light cameras address only a symptom, not the underlying problem. If the city wants to reduce red light violations and accidents then it should stop short-cycling the signal lights.
There are many intersections where it takes two or even three cycles to get through. When someone finally gets to the front of the line they are not willing to wait through yet another cycle just because the light turned yellow. Allow enough time for all the cars waiting in a cycle and fewer drivers will be angry and frustrated. Don't waste money on expensive ineffective projects that make driving in town a worse experience when there is a simple economical solution that would actually benefit citizens.
