Red light cameras and the suburbs

   I'm not sure how I feel about putting cameras at intersections to catch people not stopping at red lights. The concerns that opponents have about privacy and about this being nothing more than a money grab by revenue-starved municipalities are legitimate.

   What I do know is that it strains credulity to believe that Buffalo is the place where safety will be best served by them. I point out in my column today that the suburbs are home to far more dangerous intersections than Buffalo, by virtue of more traffic, more people - collectively - and higher speed limits.

   Would you like to see suburban towns ask for the cameras? Or should they stay in Buffalo and the state's other large cities?
