Cary Red Light Camera

A little NC news, for a change.

The red-light camera at High House Road and Prestonwood Parkway is one of Cary’s busiest red-light camera, dishing out more violations than the town’s other five cameras combined. All those violations have some people in the area seeing red.

In August, 308 people received red-light citations from the camera, of which 75 percent were drivers coming into Prestonwood who turned right on red without stopping.

“Stop citing people for failure to turn right on red properly. Sure, they’re violating the law, but there has never been a pedestrian or vehicle collision at that corner,” Prestonwood homeowner Clint DeGabrielle said.

Hmm. So it is ok to violate the law, as long as no one has been hit yet. The purpose is to keep people FROM causing accidents. Sure, right on red is allowed. But one must stop first.

“It’s absurd for anyone to think that it’s OK to not stop at a red light. Whether you’re going straight, whether you’re turning right, whether you’re turning left, you have a red light at an intersection, you’re supposed to stop,” deputy police chief Pat Bazemore said.

It is good to see that the Cary PD are not backing down. That intersection is located in a pretty ritzy area of Cary.

    Silly people. All they need to do is remove their license plates (, and no more tickets!

    It is illegal to drive without you plates, or to obscure your plates so they can’t be read. Mike.
