Do We Need MORE Traffic Cameras?
I think we need more traffic cameras, as long as they're used in strategic places.
We all hate traffic cameras... 99% of them are nothing more than traps designed to catch a driver who think's they can make it across an intersection before the yellow light turns red. Clearly their only motive is making money, but I would love to see this technology used for something far more important... catching JERKS who try to cut past traffic by driving on the shoulder.
Sitting in bumper to bumper traffic sucks... but what's even worse is watching a bunch of jerks cut through the traffic by riding in the shoulder. Not only is it frustrating watching them cut ahead of you, but knowing that when they eventually reach the front of the line, they'll only add to the delay as they merge back into the line. Let's face it, whenever we see it happen, the first thing that comes to our mind is hoping theres a police car at the front of the line waiting to give out tickets.
As far as I'm concerned, I have no sympathy for jerks who ride the shoulder like that, so I'd love to see them all get tickets from traffic cams.
