Yesterday, the Daily Herald reported that about 50 people protested outside the Lombard offices of the headquarters of RedSpeed, the main operated of red light cameras in the State of Illinois. The protests come after numerous media reports questioning the effectiveness of red light cameras. The Daily Herald recently reported that the vast majority of red light camera violation tickets were issued for rolling right turns on red lights, a move that is not considered to be a big cause of traffic accidents. There have also been reports detailing the political favors given in exchange for awarding contracts to companies providing this service. The Village of Schaumburg recently announced that they will not be using red light cameras because they do not substantially decrease the risk of accidents.
