Bus Cameras Show Progress, Illegal Passing Remains a Concern
The Marietta Daily Journal (Georgia), Feb. 28, 2013

Cobb police say that the hidden cameras installed on the sides of county school buses are helping to keep students safe.

See related article from The Marietta Daily Journal. (Marietta Daily Journal photo by Laura Moon.)

School System to Mount Cameras on Buses
WMAZ TV 13 (Georgia), Feb. 25, 2013

A safety initiative to help keep school bus riders safer begins this month in Houston County.  The Houston County Board of Education, Houston County Sheriff’s Office and American Traffic Solutions (ATS) have partnered to address the growing problem of illegal passing of school buses when stopped for students to board or depart the bus.


American Traffic Solutions welcomes Highline Public Schools in Washington as a new client and is honored to announce new changes to its partnerships with the cities of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Boynton Beach, Florida. Under ATS’ five-year agreement with Highline Public Schools, ATS will provide CrossingGuard School Bus Camera Systems to mitigate the number of cars that illegally pass stopped school buses and endanger students. By council vote, Baton Rouge, an ATS customer since 2007, will extend its contact for another year. In Boynton Beach, an amendment to its 2009 contract with ATS will add red-light safety cameras at five new traffic approaches. ATS looks forward to being a part of the continuing road safety efforts put forth by these three customers.

Letter: Red-Light Runners Should Be Ticketed in Any Manner Possible
The Ledger (Florida), Feb. 28, 2013

The anti-red-light camera bill is based on the premise that the red-light runners are self-incriminating themselves. Rep. Carlos Trujillo argued that public safety isn’t worth sacrificing constitutional rights. Don’t we, the law-abiding citizens, have a right to safety on the road?

Letter: Red-Light Cameras Vexing, but Legal
The Journal (New York), Feb. 27, 2013

Whether or not you agree with the concept, the cameras are legal. If you follow the traffic laws and drive a little cautiously, it is very easy to avoid being ticketed. I have adjusted my driving habits and have never encountered a problem.

Letter: Red-Light Camera Is Best Solution
The Express-Times (New Jersey), Feb. 26, 2013

Letter: Red-Light Cameras Save Lives
Arizona Daily Star, Feb. 25, 2013

Every 11 hours, another life is lost on Arizona roads. As president of the Arizona Public Health Association, I understand the critical need to address traffic safety in our communities. For this reason, we joined the Arizona chapter of the Traffic Safety Coalition, an organization comprised of safety advocates, bike and pedestrian groups and others, to make our roads safer.

Michael Bloomberg, New York City Mayor
Capital (New York), Feb. 22, 2013


“I would say it’s brought into the bright light the concern for stopping for school buses.”
Hawk Hagebak, Cobb Police Department Lieutenant, on school bus safety cameras.
Marietta Daily Journal (Georgia), Feb. 22, 2013


“The use of red light cameras is us embracing technology to provide a public service. You don’t have an officer chasing an individual through a red light, and you are able to use manpower in other places.”
John Price, Assistant Chief Administrative Office to the Mayor of Baton Rouge
The Advocate (Louisiana), Feb. 13, 2013

Georgia
In January, school bus drivers in the Cobb School District reported 400 drivers illegally passed their buses. That is down from 1,600 violators in a 2011 test and 900 in a one-day test last year. The district began installing school bus safety cameras in 2010. Source: Marietta Daily Journal, Feb. 22, 2013.

Commentary: Red-Light Cameras an Unquestioned Success
Home News Tribune (New Jersey), Feb. 15, 2013

Commentary: Red-Light Camera Experiment Continues

Letter: Red-Light Cameras Have Become Necessary
Iowa City Press-Citizen (Iowa), Feb. 20, 2013

As I contemplate the red light-camera issue, I believe we are not paying attention to several highly relevant factors … that reveal a substantial number of discourteous, impatient, aggressive, highly distracted divers who pay little attention to the speed limit and are driving within 3 feet of the back bumper of the driver who is traveling in front of them.

Letter: Lawmaker Should Consider Safety Aspects of Cameras
Asbury Park Press (New Jersey), Feb. 19, 2013

Previously, I was open to all sides of the red-light camera issue and agreed with some of Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon’s arguments. But now, I feel the assemblyman is discrediting himself by refusing to consider the points of view of law enforcement and other experts. As a state legislator, shouldn’t the safety of your constituents and all New Jersey residents be a high priority?


“Our numbers clearly indicate a downward trend in violations. This speaks volumes about the overall awareness and voluntary compliance of our motorists with the established red-light regulations.”
Bernard Seeley, Temple Terrace Deputy Police Chief
The Tampa Tribune/TBO.com (Florida), Feb. 20, 2013


“In the last five years we went from 54 traffic fatalities to 19. I mean, that’s dramatic!”
Cathy Lanier, Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Chief

Letter: Red-Light Cameras Not Cause of Rear-End Crashes
Sentinel (New Jersey), Feb. 14, 2013

Rear-end crashes are caused not by red-light cameras, but by drivers tailgating the cars ahead of them. These crashes happen on highways without traffic lights too. Prudence requires that we maintain adequate distances all the time, but particularly while approaching any intersection, whether equipped with a camera or not.


“The red light camera program is probably, in my opinion, the most successful program that I’ve seen that the city has.”
John Price, Assistant Chief Administrative Office to the Mayor of Baton Rouge
WVLA TV-33 (Louisiana), Feb. 14, 2013


“Not only stopping on the red lights — it’s congested and there’s a lot of businesses — but it will also slow them down. It’s not uncommon for them to come through at 60, 70 mph.”
Gary Gobel, Orange Park Police Chief on how red-light safety cameras will make a difference.

“Please don’t take away our enforcement tool. We’re trying to promote good driving habits.”
Robert Christie, Union Township Police Sergeant addresssing state legislative committee.
The Associated Press/Philly.com (New Jersey), Feb. 12, 2013


“If people know there’s no enforcement they evade the law. They run through the red light. As budgets are cut police have to ask where do we put our resources in terms of enforcement? And stationing someone at every busy intersection is not possible.”
Alice Hausman, Minnesota State Representative and sponsor of red-light camera bill.
KARE TV-11, Feb. 12, 2013

“I know there are places with a lot of red-light cameras, Apopka being one, and they are definitely proven to be a big deterrent. A lot of people see the signs letting them know an intersection is being monitored, and I think they’ve begun to take that seriously. More and more, people are realizing there are, or might be cameras, so they’re not running the red light.”

Commentary: Safety Is the Big Benefit of Red-Light Cameras
Florida Capital News, Feb. 1, 2013

Your editorial describes the camera program as a money-losing venture for the city and not the best use of taxpayers’ money. Under the city’s contract with its vendor, the city and taxpayers will never have to pay for the Red Light Camera Safety Program. The contract stipulates that, if the program ever fails to collect enough money from fines to cover the cost of operations, the vendor will cover the cost. The city and its taxpayers will never be at risk, as it is a self-funded program.

Letter: Traffic Cameras Do Save Lives
Warren Tribune Chronicle/TribToday.com (Ohio), Feb. 3, 2013

The editorial board cites insufficient signage warning drivers of cameras as a reason to eliminate the camera program. Frankly, drivers should not need a sign hung above them to obey the speed limit or stop at red lights. These are not optional rules – they are the law.
