I am wondering if village vehicles are exempt from the "red-light cameras"? I am also wondering why bicyclists that blow stop signs are not stopped and ticketed? If they were stopped and ticketed and publicity given, bicyclists would not be blowing through stop signs!

Williams Drive in Palatine is particularly dangerous. This is a stretch that has many 4-way stops. At Anderson and Williams, on Sundays, with the church traffic parked up to the stop signs, it's just a matter of time before an accident involving a cyclist happens.

Not only do the cyclists deserve tickets for blowing through the 4-way stops, the churchgoers deserve tickets for not parking 10 feet from the stop signs! These would be legitimate safety concerns that would deserve citations; not some red-light ticket minutia.

Six months ago, the police were notified of this concern ... today, the problems still exist. Perhaps the location of Anderson and Williams would be a good location for a camera.
