Naperville got out of an agreement with a company that was supposed to install cameras to catch red-light offenders at selected intersections. But the city isn't ready to kiss good-bye the nearly $900,000 in revenue those cameras were expected to generate in fines. Naperville expects to choose a new vendor and install cameras at busier intersections along Route 59, a move expected to generate as much revenue (in a shorter time) as the other cameras would have.
What do you make of all this? Are you confident the cameras provided by the new vendor, once chosen, will be reliable? Are you concerned about reports that some jurisdictions are abandoning red-light camera enforcement programs due to problems? What about the plan to shift focus to Route 59? If those are the intersections with the biggest concerns about safety, why wasn't the focus there all along?
