- Helps lower fatalities at intersections (if we'd gone with roundabouts and jug-handles to begin with, we wouldn't have had to invent the term, T-Bone - regardless, the truth is that RLCs increase the number of accidents - mostly rear-end);
- Cheapest way to solve the problem (really? cheaper than, say, adding another 1-2 second delay between the red in one direction and green in the other - a 1-minute adjustment on a computer - really?)
- It's not about replacing lost city revenue (really really? pray tell, then, why the scameras are located at the most profitable locations and not those with the highest accident rates? And why are there persistent rumours of locational 'quotas'? And for how long will the SPPD 'analyze' these infractions before turning such tasks over to private firms not bound by such minor strictures as The Bill of bloody Rights (not to mention their prime directive of increasing the shareholders yield)?
