namatad: Stone Meadow: So, you still have nothing to say about their info being used to improve traffic safety, eh?WTF are you talking about?are you saying that the data can NOT be used to improve safety?
Bungles: They generate money.... from people breaking the law. Screw those people.

penthesilea: FTFA:...the City Council ordered the Arizona company to shut off the data-collecting cameras.....American Traffic Solutions left the sensors inside the cameras active for months to collect the data without the city's knowledge.The city may not legally have the right to remove the company's equipment on their own or shut them off, but they can damn sure cover the damn things so that they can't keep recording. Grab some black trash bags, duct tape, and a cherry picker. Problem solved.
namatad: so no one drives better when they know that they might get a ticket automatically??LOLOL
Bungles: Are you suggesting speed limits have just been randomly chosen by moon-goblins to irritate you, as opposed to vast amounts of global traffic statistics over 50 years?
Bungles: Drivers who whine about traffic cameras are usually terrible drivers, who think they're unique and special snowflakes, who have an innate sense of which traffic laws are unnecessary.They're usually the same people who scream at bicyclists running red lights. Just after they went 60 in a 30 zone.Luckily we're only a few decades away from when cars automtically are locked from exceeding the speed limit in an area.
skinink: " American Traffic Solutions, and another red light camera company, unsuccessfully backed a lawsuit challenging the petition drive, and then again challenged the ballot measure after voters approved banning the cameras by 57 percent.This month, a Riverside County Superior Court judge ruled that the voters do not have the right to dictate traffic management."Wow, the establishment really doesn't like voters there, do they?
