Letter: Prioritize saving lives

Published:

 

Many people are against cameras at red lights, and yet intersections with cameras have almost 25 percent fewer fatalities than intersections without cameras, reported in the Aug. 30 story “Eyman pushes for red-light camera bans.”

One of the biggest objections to the cameras is that the cameras make money for the city. What is wrong with these critics of red-light cameras? The cameras make money and save lives. And yet we want to be able to run red lights and endanger other people. I, for one, am losing faith and hope in our fellow man.
