auto tire deflators for red light runners
at a certain intersection near my home I counted one day, and in my half hour (rush hour) watch time a little over two cars started through the intersection after the light turned red, its my thought that a tire shreeder strip placed in the white line on a few intersection would make people a lot happier
to wait their turn, after all $4-500 worth or replacement tires and having to walk home would be better discouragement than a ticket

||People running red lights is a problem,
amuse. I don't like your solution much,
though. Thankfully it would probably be
unlawful for any police force to implement
||// a little over two cars //
you mean three?
||So instead of either safley stopping them before they enter traffic, deflating all four of their tires at once would make a speeding car quite the unpredictable killing machine. Or slow-moving traffic over a spike strip would result in an immobile car in the middle of the intersection. Between death missle or brick, I'll take the ticket.
||Also, traffic tickets are a significant source
of income for the state and the police.
Implementing your idea would detract
from their funds, perhaps even more than
the cost of implementation itself, due to
||A car with flat tires spinning out of control on an intersection would be a serious safety risk. - Try custard filled speed bumps that slowly expand/shrink during yellow phases and you get my bun.
