LOMA LINDA (AP) — Red-light cameras in Loma Linda have been given the boot.

During the five years that cameras operated at four intersections, the mayor says Loma Linda collected $200,000, but $15 million in ticket fines went to other agencies and Redflex, the Australian company that ran the project.

The San Bernardino Sun says the lights were turned off Wednesday night, when the Redflex contract ended. Most tickets cost drivers $465 each.

To increase traffic safety, Mayor Rhodes Rigsby says yellow lights will last one second longer from now on.

In Los Angeles, an audit has raised doubts about 32 red-light cameras in use there. Rigsby says he has talked to LA officials about the cameras.

    Here is what actually works. Delayed green lights. I understand LL has lengthened the yellow time, which is a good approach. The final solution however is to slightly delay the green, so that all lights are briefly red while the intersection clears; then the sequence can safely resume. I have experienced this approach in other states. And I really wonder why the “experts” didn’t recommenced this safety solution long ago. Could it be perhaps because the initial goal of camera promoters was primarily $$$ rather than safety?
