Exclamation When The Money Disappears, So Do The Ticket Cameras

NMA Article: When The Money Disappears, So Do The Ticket Cameras

disappear   
From
The Daily World in Aberdeen, Washington on January 24, 2008:


“If you don’t want a ticket, don’t run a red light,” said Councilwoman Margo Shortt, who felt safety should trump everything else and the red light cameras would prevent accidents.


“We need to try this to see if it works,” said Councilman Bob McCullough. “The key issue in all this is traffic safety.”



From The Daily World in Aberdeen, Washington on February 16, 2008:


Mayor Bill Simpson will hold off on plans to put red light cameras in Aberdeen intersections in the wake of an initiative Tim Eyman is proposing to reduce traffic congestion.


[…]


Eyman has proposed an initiative that could take any revenue the city would receive from the tickets the cameras would generate and put it into a special account to help reduce traffic congestion statewide.


“That’s not really what we were expecting when we got into all of this,” Simpson said.


[…]


Eyman’s initiative aims to reduce congestion by opening up carpool lanes to all vehicles in non-peak hours, requires traffic signals to be synchronized and insists accidents be cleared from roadways quicker.



But remember, the key issue in all this is traffic safety.
