Lots of interesting comments from readers today about the story in this morning's paper:

Leone "Le" Moore, who lives in the Summerfields area of far north Fort Worth, wonders why cities don't put more visible signs around the intersections ... or at least attach an orange flag to them. "Those signs are smaller than a speed limit sign. If we really want to stop these red light runners, and prevent accidents, then why not make them more visible?

Jim, who didn't leave his last name or phone number, challeged the assertion in the story that license plate sprays, which could cloak the license plate number from a camera, are illegal. "There is no state that has such a law. Why don’t you guys just get it straight? What you’re really talking about here is generating more taxes for states. This is what this is really about."

Jim: Here's a link to the 2003 state law that made it illegal to apply any coating on a plate that obscures the numbers: http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/tlodocs/78R/analysis/doc/SB00439F.doc
