More roadside cameras please.

My route back from the swimming pool in the morning takes me across a crossroads controlled by traffic lights. It is noticeable in the prosperous suburb of Birmingham that an increasing number of motorists seem to regard traffic lights as optional. It also seems that it is the well-to-do in their new cars and 4x4's who think that they can drive over the lights on red. These are those who ignore the law on using mobile phones while driving too.

Rather than put in more speed cameras, please could the powers-that-be consider installing cameras that photograph those who drive over red lights, so that they can be banned from driving soonest, thus protecting the rest of us.
