Cameras for running red lights in PA?

Too many people are running red lights when the signal is CLEARLY already read. Not just turning from yellow to red. I live between Embarcadero Rd. and Oregon Expressway, two roads which are heavily used by commuters. I see people running red lights so often that I wonder if the city would consider installing cameras to stop them. San Mateo has them in Menlo Park and off the Dumbarton Bridge. They work well, as I received a ticket due to a camera (and I thought the light was yellow). The fine was a stiff $400 or so, plus traffic school. The offenders I witness are at the intersections of Louis Rd./Embarcadero, Greer Rd./Embarcadero, St. Francis/Embarcadero, Louis Rd./Oregon Ex. Again, the light is clearly red when they are running them.
