(KPLR) – Could a red light be the solution to stopping speeders?  Here's JB, “The Way It Oughta Be”.

I'm not exactly sure how I feel about this, but some cities are trying something new in the effort to keep drivers safe.

In Philadelphia, they are testing out road sensors that can determine if someone is speeding.

The sensors trigger a red light at the next intersection.  If cars are speeding, a red light will slow them down.

I would think that light would get quite a workout.

Many drivers seem to think it's better than giving out tickets.  I'll agree with that.

I'm JB, and that's “The Way It Oughta Be.”
