Who knew how many evil red light runners there were in the City of Seattle? Apparently a lot, according to the Seattle Times.
Since July, 5,500 citations have been mailed to drivers after traffic-light cameras at four intersections snapped their photos. The fine is $101, and police say the one-year pilot program appears to be working just as it's supposed to: catching scofflaws while allowing police officers to spend their time preventing other offenses.
Just in case you weren't counting, that's over $550,000 in fines! Talk about bringing home the bacon!
