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

Would citizens be less angry if the city's who 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 red light camera database and watching the news, I have only heard of one example of a city 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.
