    Once a camera is in and the city is reaping big bux from the poor design of the intersection, they have a financial incentive NOT to fix the design problems. I know of no city that has used the data and video gathered by the cameras to guide a redesign of the intersection. Or even do cheap things like brighter street lighting, better pavement markings, more or larger signal heads, longer yellows. Has your city? Pick an intersection where the camera went in years ago and still issues lots of tickets, and send a public records request to the city, asking for records of the work (or studies) they have done at the intersection since the time the camera went in. Most likely you will get records showing basic maintenance, nothing else.
