Red Light Camera Tickets, Cash Cows for Cities?

Are Red Light Cameras tickets, cash cows for Cities?
 


Most people seem to think so and that their sole reason for existence is because they bring revenue for Cities, and not because they improve traffic safety or driver performance.

Per Bloomberg, the red light cameras are not even generating the desired revenue for Cities.

So, if they are not generating the desired revenue, not improving traffic safety, are disliked by the community, why are red light cameras still around?

RedFlex and American Traffic Solutions are two of the leading red light camera installers who benefit by having more cameras installed.

While the community responds with mobile apps such as Trapster, a social network for traps (such as red light cameras) and products such as photoblocker sprays, anti-photo covers.
