Captain Van responds to last week’s Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, Three letters on red light cameras (RLCs) in last week’s issue deserve a response.  The flawed legislation which authorizes RLCs prohibits the evidence from being used for anything else but issuing notices of violation.   It is silly but true that using the photos to establish fault in an accident is prohibited.
