Richard Retting is perhaps the most skillful salesman for red light camera companies we have ever seen. He is employed by the camera company Brexford and has worked for others. He has worked for the IIHS whose member insurance companies make money with surcharges in some states when their policyholders get camera tickets.
It is interesting that anyone concerned with their reputation would agree to work with Redflex after they were thrown out of Chicago in a $2 million dollar bribery scandal. And please note that it takes a LOT to get thrown out of Chicago for bribery and corruption.
There is a long list of studies and investigative reporters articles on our website showing drastic reductions in violation rates with longer yellows, rates that stay down over time. Increasing the yellows by 0.7 to 1.0 seconds typically drops violation rates by 60% to 90%. Anyone objecting to huge reductions in violations with longer yellows is likely in the camera revenue stream. http://www.motoristslonger yellows is likely in the camera revenue stream.org/red-light-cameras/yellow-lights
