EDMONTON, Alta. — In an effort to make it clear that red light cameras aren’t simply cash cows, the City of Edmonton is trying to make them as visible as possible.

Local schools have been painting the cameras in bright colors, with designs such as owls and human eyes, to make sure that they grab the attention of drivers.

“We’re not camouflaging these cameras,” Edmonton police Const. Tom Farquhar told local media. “Kids are painting them as bright and bold as possible, not so we can rake money in, but to make people slow down and not run red lights.”

He says that drivers are slowing down and lives are being saved as a result of the controversial cameras.
