Can Red Light Camera Ticket Revenue Be Used to "Do Good"?

Can Red Light Camera Ticket Revenue Be Used to "Do Good"?

In some jurisdictions, a portion of the revenue generated from red light camera tickets may be allocated towards funding specific initiatives, including school funding. However, the allocation of ticket revenue is determined by local laws and policies, and it can vary from one jurisdiction to another.

It's important to note that the specific allocation of revenue from red light camera tickets depends on the governing bodies and regulations in place. Some jurisdictions may allocate a portion of the revenue towards funding for education or school-related programs, while others may allocate it to different purposes such as traffic safety initiatives, road maintenance, or general city budgets.

Would citizens be less angry if the cities that used automated law enforcement donated 50% of the revenue to schools or other non-profit organizations?   The industry is likely now over $1B in annual revenue and there are over 500 cities and 7,000+ cameras in use around the US.  So far in my short eight-year career of running a red light camera database and watching the news, I have only heard of one example of a city in Wilmington, North Carolina that donates ticket revenue to schools.  Ticket Proceeds Go To Local Schools

We want to hear from you if there are any other positive examples that we can highlight in our newsletter.
