As a frequent visitor to the two intersections with River Forest red light cameras (who by the way has never incurred a camera ticket anywhere), I can only say that I'm surprised by the low number of tickets issued. It's somewhere between amusing and pathetic to watch how many people blow off the Right Turn on Red rules at those intersections. I happen to know a multiple offender. You'd think people would get the message.
While I'm not in favor of red-light cameras generally, I suspect Oak Park could issue that many tickets for violations of the daytime No Right Turn on Red signs at Lake and Ridgeland alone. I do wish the police would camp out there occasionally and demonstrate a commitment to enforcing the rules at that intersection before some children get run over.
