Traffic cameras have been installed along Route 112 in Patchogue this year to catch "red light runners" but have angered some residents with tickets.
Enforcement is the key to getting people to comply with a law, but communities like Patchogue and Medford don't have the resources to allow police to patrol intersections as often as needed to ticket all motorists who run red lights.
Studies have shown that the presence of cameras helps to cut red light running. However, since their installation more and more residents have complained about unjust tickets.
How do you feel about the new cameras? Have you received a ticket? Are you more cautious when approaching the intersection or turning to make a right while the light was red? Is there a place that you would like one added?
