Each city that has red light cameras takes that revenue and puts it to use in whatever way they want. But, this could all soon change if the senate has anything to do with it.
The city next to me has many Red Light Cameras and last year they made 100,000 per camera on red light runners. They are set to add about 15 more cameras that would generate a revenue of one million over a year. But, now a bill is going to the senate to take all that money to use it for other things such as schools or something. That is if it passes. All the cities are not happy and going to fight it.
