How Does a Traffic Camera Work?
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     In just a few years, you will probably be driving. Maybe you are already looking forward to getting a driver's manual and your learner's permit. When that time comes, things like the laws of the road and driver safety will be very important to you.
 
2     One thing that may catch your attention as you learn all about driving is the red light camera. Some people love the cameras; they say that red light cameras make driving safer. Other people hate them; they say that red light cameras are an unfair way to ticket drivers.
 
3     Red light cameras take pictures of drivers running red lights. The drivers are then sent tickets in the mail.
 
4     There are three main parts to a red light camera - the camera itself, triggers that are built into the road, and a computer to control the whole operation.
