I'm sure it's dual purpose. I see more people every day who just don't even plan to stop on a right on red turn unless they're heading into danger by not stopping.

but they're making plenty of $$ in the process.

I personally like the idea of these cameras. If it can help stop having 6 fuckin cars turn left AFTER the light is red, I am all for it. it is one of my biggest pet peaves.
I do think that they need to be a little less sensitve tho. getting a ticket if I drive a little over the white line but still stop would be a pisser.
