Should Connecticut allow red-light cameras?

State lawmakers are once again talking about legalizing cameras that would catch drivers running through red lights. Supporters say the cameras would make drivers more careful and roads safer. They also acknowledge that some municipalities would welcome the extra money the fines would bring in. But critics say the cameras are an invasion of privacy. They “enrich for-profit vendors and fail to provide the promised safety benefits and revenues for municipalities,” said Andrew Schneider, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut.
