Newly installed red light flash box installed at Cedarhurst Avenue and West Broadway targeting north bound traffic without any signage. School crossing guard waived me through the intersection after the light had turned red. I proceeded without knowing that there was a flash box there,caught my car and $80 later, I am informing all to beware of so called "offical traffic crossing guards" waiving you through an intersection.

It seems that these devices are not being installed to either improve the flow of traffic nor to make for a safer traffic flow. It does appear that they are being used to generate income for the local area and for the company that installs them. Would suggest that the various towns, etc, try regular traffic enforcement by their traffic enforcement division.

I disagree. Having received two tickets our family is more careful about red lights. I'd like to see more well marked intersections.
