Red Light Violations

The local Lafayette newspaper The Daily Advertiser recently revamped it's website. One of the new regular features is really cool.

Every day the Advertiser posts a local red light violation. The city has been installing cameras at red lights for a while now. The offending driver's license plate is photographed and a ticket issued.

Certainly I should be concerned about where Big Brother is taking this, and when the cameras first went up I was. Watching these videos though kind of makes you rethink things. Some of these people are just being reckless. Maybe they need someone to help them be more careful. What do you guys think?
