I've never seen so many people running red lights as there is is in Redmond and Bend. Enough money could be made to probably run the police or city budget.

Actually cities lose money with the operation and upkeep of these camera systems. They just installed one in Portland and they said there is no money to be made. The cost of upkeep is higher than the amount of fines that will be paid. It's about safety not money.

If "we the people" establish laws (that includes setting speed limits) than "we the people" should enforce ALL of the laws. Traffic cams are cheap and easy and if you put one every quarter-mile on the Bend Parkway, Bend could earn enough to totally abolish property taxes... ;-)

We could fund a new homeless shelter every week if we put speed cameras on the parkway.

The red light runners and school zone speeders could make the city alot of money if we had the officers to cover

We already have them. I watch them all the time on the ODOT website. We need to keep them.

Love the idea! Too many folks running red lights and endangering the lives of others. Plus, a nice boost to the budget!

Can't depend on people acting responsible. Make some money from the violators. Attach their tax returns.

No, Bend will just raise taxes again. People that are on a fixed income are being forced out of Bend because of prices.

Very invasive and subject to errors.

Lol, they aren't in your bedroom. There is absolutely nothing invasive about it. You just don't want to get caught.

Error? Many states are successfully using cameras to collect tools for their highways and it's a well-established system. As for "invasive" ... Dude, you're on a PUBLIC road!!!!!!

I can’t see why anybody would want to be ruled by modern liberals anymore at this point.

If you're so enamored with Idaho, move there. It's what an adult would do. Sadly, we're not dealing with adults. The child would inconvenience the majority to get It's way. Hint: the border will never be moved, quit wasting our time. This adult is staying in Oregon. The children can move.
