Denver's Dataless Red Light Cameras

In 2008 Denver installed red light cameras to ticket folks who ran red lights, according to this article there up until now there has been no data to even backup that they are doing their job well.

It's mentioned that in August the cameras were only 83% accurate when Denver agreed that they needed to be 98%+ accurate.

The whole contract sounds like a schetchy deal and unfortunately for the citizens, we are the ones paying the price (though not me... I haven't gotten a ticket for running a red yet!). At $75 a ticket, you'd really want to make sure the equipment you use is being as close to 100% accurate as possible!
