I'm disappointed that Virginia has allowed the red light camera law back into existence after it had been successfully killed off about 5 years ago when a study showed that red light cameras didn't improve safety. So one can only conclude that jurisdictions use them as a source of revenue (as the economy gets worse, expect more of these kinds of shenanigans). But there is a way to beat the ticket if you get one. Read here:

While you're at it, join NMA and help stop jurisdictions from using traffic laws to generate revenue.
