I was told that red light cameras were supposed to have a delay/buffer before they go hot, in order to let people clear the intersection on amber. It is supposed to make the system catch only true red light runners. Is that not the case? It is counterproductive and dangerous if they are overly sensitive. Especially if they are making people brake hard on wet pavement. It would also make these stats look worse than they are. I hate it when an amber light changes in that 'indecision zone' where you have milliseconds to decide whether to stop or not. Under normal calm driving, it's pretty rare, but I think everyone hates it when that happens!
