Love 'em or hate 'em, seems nearly every driver has a pretty strong opinion about those traffic cameras that snap violators' photos and send them a traffic ticket in the mail.

Now I'm sure you've heard of speed traps before. They are usually places on the road where the speed dramatically changes and there's either an officer waiting for the unwary with a radar gun, or a camera is installed to snag drivers breaking the traffic laws.

In many areas, these speed traps are designed to slow traffic to make the area safer, like on a residential street or a sudden change from highway to a town's main street.

But in this instance, a single traffic camera is generating enormous fines from speeding tickets. How enormous? How does $2 million in fines, every month, sound to you?
