Getting Rid of Red-Light Cameras

And using the law to do it.

Option 1: Legally require municipalities to increase the amount of time a light spends on yellow. Cameras then become more of a drain on city budgets as their costs outpace their revenue generation.

Option 2: A judge in Florida just ruled that red light tickets violate the Equal Protection Clause because they allow two distinct punishments for the same crime. I can only believe this is the case here in Louisiana.

Though that one may backfire, as this state might make the cameras deliver the more punishing offense of getting points on your license.

Option 3: Have the state legislature ban the devices.
