6. I'd like to see more of them
especially at many of our dangerous intersections. Red light runners are epidemic here and I remember when I was stationed in Germany they used them to curtail the problem. It worked well there and I think we need to use them for that here.

Locally they tried using them with Face Recognition software. They installed the software in Ybor City and it caused an uproar from the public. Interestingly enough they never caught a criminal in the entire year they used the FRS.

The practice could easily get out of hand, but I do believe it makes us a little safer.
