Hate red-light cameras?
You’re not alone.
Even while plagued by corruption scandals and technological flaws, red-light and speed camera programs have proven lucrative for local governments across Illinois. Mayors and village presidents continue to insist these programs are all about safety. But a recent study from Case Western Reserve University found that red-light cameras fail to increase traffic safety.
Now, you can fight back.
We’ve released a new tool on our website that allows you to find out if there’s a red-light camera program in your community, and take action by contacting your mayor directly and voicing your support for a ban on red-light cameras.
You can access the red-light camera tool by visiting: redlights.illinoispolicy.org
Illinois municipalities should discontinue their red-light camera programs, which have for too long burdened motorists without making them safer.
