Valentine's Day Red Light Camera Protest

UPDATE, FEB. 14, 2010: See our report at "Video of Red Light Camera Protest in Chicago." Nothing says "I love you" more this Valentine's Day than by protesting those damned red light cameras. Join in the fun and attend a Nationwide Red Light Camera Protest on Valentine's Day in a city - or intersection - near you! A Facebook group, aptly named "Nationwide Red Light Camera Protest" is pushing the idea protesting the cameras. Most of the events will begin at Noon (see the list of cities below for times and locations). The Facebook group is produced by the Liberty Restoration Project, which has video from past red light camera protests. You can hold your own protest in your neighborhood. If you have red light cameras in your city, make signs, gather near a red light camera, and protest! We can supply you with information to hand out to inform drivers of the top 15 reasons why they should be concerned about red light cameras and 5 ways to prevent red light running. Our other suggestion is that you hand out contact information for all your city council representatives, ask drivers to call them, and if you have a bill in your state banning red light cameras, add that information to a flier as well!! If you decide to hold a protest, give us the location of your protest and we'll add it to the list below. Let's make our voices HEARD all throughout the country that we want to BAN THE CAMS! PLEASE be sure to add your photos and videos of your rally to this page afterward!! List Updated February 10: Here's an updated list to the cities that are getting involved and protesting Red Light Cameras this Sunday, Valentine's Day. If your city is on the list, we ask that you join in this protest. If your city is not included, we urge you to rally the troops and have a protest in your city!!
