Default “THE DILEMMA ZONE” (Forum)

Camera Fraud Article: “THE DILEMMA ZONE” (Forum)

The basic definition of The Dilemma Zone is the point between a vehicle and an intersection that is difficult to navigate because it offers two dangerous solutions:

1. Pass through the intersection on a yellow or “deep yellow” to avoid a sudden stop.

2. Brake heavily to slow the vehicle to a stop at an uncomfortable pace to avoid entering the intersection

Both choices have their merits and good drivers are able to identify the proper one if they are alert and free of distraction. Red Light Cameras (RLCs) were introduced with the promise of “modifying driving habits.” There’s no doubt that they do just that. However, accidents have been proven time and time again to increase when RLCs are added to an intersection, especially the rear end types.

Longer yellow lights and intersection sensors have so far proven to be much more effective than signal enforcement as a means of improving safety, but no solution is perfect.

Is there any argument to be made that RLCs are not for revenue generation? Is it possible for surveillance to serve any purpose in an intersection other than to track driving/traffic patterns? How could capturing “violations” or the movement/registration of a vehicle/driver improve safety at all?
