Outstanding work by our #1 OPD! These folks that run lights are the ones that cause the accidents later down the road. This type of enforcement is necessary to gain the respect of the public for the red lights and stop lights!

I would have to agree. There have been times where I have seen someone run a red light and think to myself, man I wish I was the police. Its either their not paying attention or their in a hurry and just don't want to stop. Don't be one of those people that says man I should have stopped, when its already too late.
