Valentine's Day Protests Against Red Light Cameras

On Valentine's Day, roughly two dozen citizens gathered at the corner of Addison and Western Avenue in Chicago and protested the use of red light cameras.  They carried signs and urged motorists to honk their horns to protest the use of red light cameras.  They believe that red light cameras are more about generating revenue, at the expense of motorists, than to promote safety.  The City of Chicago starting using red light cameras since 2003.  Recently, the use of these cameras has come under scrutiny as studies are showing that the at many intersections, accidents have actually increased.  

This is the first time we have heard of actual organized protests of red light cameras.
