Some folks have had enough of the red light cameras that have grown across the area lately. Several dozen people gathered last night in Lombard at the location of RedSpeed-Illinois, one of the state's biggest red light camera providers, to protest these red light cameras.

Organized by state senate candidate Peter Breen, the event featured an appearance from state Senator Dan Duffy (R-Lake Barrington), who said, "These cameras are unfair, unjust and make hundreds of millions of dollars a year on the backs of honest citizens. It's been proven over and over and over again it's not about safety but about revenue."

As usual, the Parking Ticket Geek was all over the event and has more information (and pictures) on what went down.
