Sure they do.

The only thing that the red light cameras do is generate money for the city, that's it. There's 4 where I live and accident statistics in the past 10 years have shown that they haven't really reduced red light accidents at all and in some cases they've actually increased.

City really doesnt make much on the cameras in the big picture. They make more in property taxes, and hotel taxes (Speaking of my city here in california) than they do on the cameras. There is alot of upkeep involved with them from being defaced and having some one service them, etc. Infact here they removed them due to the cost.

I do hate the cameras and think they just have to go because they don't really solve the problem they were intended to fix.
