Red Light Cameras are a "revenue windfall"

For city of Red Bank near Chattanooga.

Since Red Bank installed cameras to catch drivers speeding through red lights last year, it expected to make $95,000. Instead, the city made $450,000 from sending out tickets for $50 from red light cameras on Ashland Terrace and Signal Mountain Boulevard.

Jeff Greene, a Red Bank resident, said, "I'd like to know where the extra money is going."
