He may soon get his wish.
The city of Roanoke has asked the General Assembly for permission to install photo red cameras at intersections.
They would be used to snap pictures of any vehicle that runs a red light.

The cameras typically work like this.
It takes three pictures, one of the car's license plate, another of the car going through the intersection, and a third of the red light.
The car owner's then receives a ticket in the mail.

That is exactly what localities that use this technology want to hear. [GRAPHIC]
Take Wilmington North Carolina.
Since the red light program began 4 years ago, the number of daily citations has dropped by nearly 50-percent.
The number of angle crashes at intersections is also down by 23-percent.
It is proof the cameras are effective but some wonder if this is an invasion of privacy.

Critics also point out the cameras are a money maker.
Wilmington North Carolina for example makes more than 180-thousand dollars a year through red light citations.
But city leaders point out that money is then used to make safety improvements on the roadways.

Jean, the bill that would allow cameras in Roanoke has passed the Senate. It now goes to the House and if passes would then go to Roanoke City council but not before a public hearing.

((STEVE MASON:THE CAVALIERS HAVE 10 ACC GAMES REMAINING BEFORE THE CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT MARCH 11TH. 5 FRESHMAN ARE SEEING MINUTES THIS SEASON AND AVERAGING 30 OF THE UVA'S 76 POINTS A GAME. HERE'S A CLOSER LOOK AT VIRGINIA'S BRAT PACK. ))
((Former Roanoke Catholic product J.R. Reynolds became the second UVa freshman to season to earn rookie of the week honors after scoring 26 points and shooting 64 percent from the field in two games last week. But J.R. is encouraged most not by individual stats but by the chemistry UVa's freshman five are developing. ((:))
Gary Forbes leads UVa freshman in scoring with 9.9 points each time out. But Dante Minter has also been impressive. His hustle and defense are two reasons UVa 's leading scorer Elton Brown has spent a little more time on the bench of late. ((:)) T.J. Bannister's brings an incredible quick, slashing style of play to the line up. The development of his leadership abilities among his freshman teammates is crucial consider floor general Todd Billet is a senior. ((:)) ((:))
The Cavaliers are OH and 3 in ACC road games this season and will look for that first win Saturday at Wake Forest. Steve Mason for your WDBJ-7 Atlantic Coast Connection.))

The Patriots are still the favorites, but don't try telling that to the "Minster of Defense" Reggie White.

After retiring from the NFL in 1999, White unretired for the 2000 season and came back with the Carolina Panthers for one season. That year he became very close to Panthers' owner Jerry Richardson - and for no other reason than that he's pulling for Carolina.

White won a Super Bowl with the Packers, and he says the way things have been in the NFL the past few years - anything in possible on a given Sunday.
