      I work with heavy trucks. Unlike most motorist the braking time to come to a complete and safe stop, for the vehicles I drive daily for work, are significantly longer. Increased notice of lights and cameras would give me extra time to safely come to a stop. I have paid these tickets way to often not due to negligence but because the 3 second yellow lights on the 30 mph roads is not enough time to safely stop when under heavy load. This is extremely the case when it comes to lights at the bottom of hills. I feel yellow lights should also be extended to help prevent these events. Lastly, although beneficial to the cities coffers, these cameras are financially hurtful to me. I live just above the poverty line, as do many other citizens of Yonkers, and slapping fines on my already overly taxed pay check due to lights that are not calibrated to the SAFE braking capabilities of ALL vehicles on the roadway seems unfair (if not a blatant strong arming by the city).

      The cameras are just a set up for someone to make a mistake. Signs could alert people to the danger involved. The cameras are just a revenue making tool...not a Deterrent!

      Do away with these lights. You can make up the revenue by having the YPD patrol the highways where maniacs drive

      and kill people. The Sprain is a joke especially when it turns into the Bronx River Parkway.

      All the City Council Members who voted for red light cameras

      should reconsider and get these camera lights out of Yonkers for good!

      C'mon Yonkers, you are making $$ on the "candid camera" program so spend some of those $$ on the proper signage. Make it safe for all, pedestrians and motorists.
