Beaverton is about to become a lot less friendly, and less safe to drive in for that matter. Redflex cameras, which usually cause erratic driving and increased collisions, will start ticketing drivers who turn right on red in that town.
Beaverton’s right on red fines will be worthy of Chicago or Los Angeles. They are reported to be in the neighborhood of $400.00. Of course, it’s all for safety, right?
Local news is already questioning the heavy fines which amount to extortion. The citizen backlash should begin shortly after the first round of tickets are mailed out.
