In the biggest city near me they tried out red-light cameras a few years ago -- it lasted about six months before the city council voted to get rid of them.
One of the few times I've ever seen citizens get organized and raise hell and get something done (it's possible, we really could take charge and change some things, but for some reason it very rarely happens).
I think their downfall was that they got a lil too greedy, manipulating yellow light times and ticketing people for making "rolling stop" right turns on red. All they accomplished was causing more accidents and pissing too many people off.
