RE: ENRADD - Electronic Non Radar Device

Ah, our illustrious state governmant legislature passed a law which allows 
the use of red light cameras.  Ten cities in North Carolina are putting 
them up.  What makes it legal (supposedly) is that it is not a driving 
violation, it is a civil penalty, and the intersections have to be marked. 
 I can see this causing more rear-end collisions as people now start 
smacking on the brakes at intersections to avoid running the light.

That sounds totally illegal. It has been challenged and done away with
already in several municipalities.
