Stopping at the red light usually works.

In taking a picture, all cameras control the amount of light allowed into the camera to expose the film, or, with digital cameras, make an imprint on a light sensor. SLR or DSLR cameras allow you to control the exposure of the film or sensor with controls like the Aperture and Shutter Speed (the size of the opening and how long it is open, respectively).

i do not think we should have them

At most intersections, you will see little cameras at the top of the light. They look like little tubes. These are not red light traffic cameras. They are sensors used by the traffic light to control whether its a green light or red light. Actual red light cameras are usually bigger and are placed on the curb on its own pole. They usually have a flashlight to take pictures. They flash at night when taking pictures.
