In this mornings Saint Petersburg Times headline reads City moves ahead with camera plan.It is full speed ahead to install cameras at 20 crash prone intersections.May take up to 6 months to get the cameras working could be 30 to 60 days if they piggy back the cameras.$8,000,000 could raised they say only 1 councilman out of 9 disagreed with going ahead with the cameras.
Here is the link to the full article:
If there are no point against the driver, It's all about the MONEY!!!! for the goverment.
Houston had cameras for several years. We had a referendum on the ballot in November and Houston has removedthe cameras because people voted. We can change things with a vote.

They had people speak out against this and the council decided against not going forward.One council member who was against the red light cameras said bluntly it was just for revenue.Hopefully it will die before it goes as far as getting put in place and we have to do what the citizens of Houston did.
may very well be, BUT why not wait and see what happens at these "crash prone" sites after a reasonable period of time?
Would it be all that bad if the city made money AND the public was safer?
Since I updated my red light file I keep getting this warning:
"Warning, speed limit 7km per hour? Why is this happening several times a day.
This indicates that you have loaded a POI file with a "7" in the name, such as 7-eleven.csv. POI Loader interprets numbers in the file name as an implied speed alert. Rename the file so it has no numbers in the name (eg. SevenEleven.csv) and rerun POI Loader.
Until the voting public states clearly - fires the bastards - it will continue. It's amazing to me that the public cannot discern between doing things that promote safety on the roads vs. granting a carte blanche for revenue raised thru Speed & Redlight cameras.
I guess we get what we deserve.
Activism and voting does the trick
