Speed Cam Money Went to Govít, Not Research
 
<b>Camera Fraud Article: Speed Cam Money Went to Govít, Not Research</b><br/><br/><div class='snap_preview'><br /><p><a href="http://camerafraud.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/motivational-govt1.jpg"><img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-2628" title="motivational-govt" src="http://camerafraud.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/motivational-govt1.jpg?w=220&h=176" alt="motivational-govt" width="220" height="176" /></a>Headlines like these sure cast automated ticketing in a warm, fuzzy light. Of course our favorite beleaguered ticketing vendor, Redflex, hails from down under as well.</p>

<blockquote><p>It has been revealed the New South Wales Government is now collecting the revenue from speed cameras which were installed specifically to raise money for research into spinal cord injuries.</p>
<p>The speed camera plan was announced in 2003 by the former Premier Bob Carr and the quadriplegic actor Christopher Reeve.</p>
<p>Ten speed cameras were installed in school zones across the state for the program.</p>
<p>During a budget estimates hearing, the Government said the money <strong>now goes into Consolidated Revenue.</strong></p>
<p>The revelation angered the Nationals MP Duncan Gay.</p>
<p>“The original announcement was that 10 extra speed cameras would be put in place specifically for this,” he said.</p>
<p>“Those 10 cameras are still in place, yet you are now telling us that <strong>quietly, in the dark of night, this whole procedure has changed</strong> and the people of New South Wales are being duped.”</p></blockquote>
