  • RLC are NOT a safety device.

    Most RLV crashes are plus 5 seconds into red and have secondary themes like DUI, fleeing police, not paying attention. These will NEVER be stopped by a RLC!

    Most RLC “tickets” are for technical fouls like right turns or stopping over the stop line.

    IN this article, it is very obvious that the amber is TOO SHORT for all the vehicles.

    Longer ambers will reduce the violations for straight thru to unprofitable levels.

    But, that is what a RLC VENDOR DOESN’T WANT!

    RLC companies REQUIRE techincal fouls to make a business case for RLC!

    It is time to BAN THE CAMS!

  • Ya think they should just adjust the yellow light time? maybe there would be enough time to stop? ya think? I know I get all stressed when I come even close to lights these day’s. Should I speed up? or slam on the breaks hoping someone behind me doesn’t slam into me.. Sheesh

  • Drivers possessing a Commercial Driver License, driving those school buses and fuel trucks mentioned, should have been taught that when approaching a green light that has not been observed changing to green, to treat it as a “stale” green light; meaning it may change at any time soon. The driver should remove his foot from the accelerator pedal and place it over the brake pedal (known as covering the brake) when approaching the light. This reduces the speed of the vehicle slightly and also decreases the time it takes to stop the vehicle. And with no posted 65mph speed limits on Long Island, why are these vehicles traveling that fast ! Drive safely, and you won’t have to worry about the red light cameras.

  • I know what you mean. I think that stress may come from the fact that yellow lights differ in their timing. If we all knew that a yellow light would remain yellow for a set amount of time we might all be able to react accordingly. Even those impatient cars behind you could anticipate your decision to stop or go. 3.9 – 5 seconds may not seem like much of a range, but when you’re moving fast it can make a big difference when deciding whether to stop.

  • hmmm. that is not good to hear about .. i think more security must have to locate on that area.

  • i think that action must also have to consider, just for good most especially to the truck rentals company.

  • that is one thing to consider most especially to those truck drivers,, truck rentals company must conduct a seminars about safety.

  • oath taking … it is important to keep an oath. our oath to serve you the best we can do is a promise that cant be broken.
