I had to respond to John Domansky's letter regarding red light cameras. He listed several things the cameras do not do, and he is correct. The cameras are designed to perform one function only. That is catch people running red lights.

That frees up police officers to pursue all the other infractions he listed in his letter.

Also, many politicians want to do away with the cameras. Why? Are they pandering to voters?

If someone runs a red light and the camera catches them, what is the problem?

I for one would like to feel safe while driving through an intersection on a green light.

The argument that cameras are only used to make money is nonsense.

What's next, radar guns?
