Zombie DJ: Whoops! Wrong thread.Anyone know where the library is?
ilikeracecars: One of the schools in my city closed, but the 20 mph sign in front of the school kept flashing during school dropoff hours. I saw a guy pulled over in front once, but I had no way of knowing if that was the reason he was pulled over.
"One Prince George's legislator's attempt to extend the operation of county speed cameras to nights and weekends is drawing criticism from opponents who say the cameras are intended to aid school safety, not generate revenue after school hours."
I pity those fools!
zimbomba63: Shoot them! Not the cameras, the politicians.

INeedAName: zimbomba63: Shoot them! Not the cameras, the politicians.Good to see someone came in to advocate violence. It's not a thread about the government impoings taxes, tickets, etc. unless some idiot comes in and calls for people to get shot.
lack of warmth: ilikeracecars: One of the schools in my city closed, but the 20 mph sign in front of the school kept flashing during school dropoff hours. I saw a guy pulled over in front once, but I had no way of knowing if that was the reason he was pulled over.Reminds me of the time I failed a driving test for speeding in a school zone. It was the school I went to, I got out of school at regular dismissal time, walked home, got with mom and drove back to the DMV located next to my hs. I took the test about 2 hours after school was let out, but because I was going 35 and the 25 school zone sign was still flashing, I failed and had to retake the test later. To add further insult, the city cops in that area couldn't even write a ticket for less than 11 over without the court tossing it out. She failed me for something everyone else did on a daily basis.

It's for safety, citizen.
You need more safety.
Much, much more safety.
Do not question us.

95BV5: Washington's Supreme Court already ruled on this bullshiat argument. Children must be *present* in those zones here. Common sense rules the day.

EdNortonsTwin: How great would it be if virtually everyone didn't violate a traffic law for 6 mos straight.I know, I know, dream big.
ReapTheChaos: There used to be hoards of kids walking past my house going to or from school, these days it's 8 or 10 at most. Lazy bastards.
Enemabag Jones: LinkNot only were no other companies brought in for the bidding of the speed cameras, but Baltimore County accepted ACS' profit split which would give ACS 85-90 percent of the revenue generated by the citations, while the county would keep only 10-15 percent. Five other jurisdictions in the state currently keep 60 percent of the profit generated by its speed cameras. If this is Baltimore County's evidence that this is not a revenue generator, then the question becomes, if we are going to have the cameras, why would we keep such a small part of the revenue?This particular deal is in Baltimore, but even if this was split 33/33/33 between state/fed/corporation, it still seems more about payoffs and corporate profit rather than construction funds or safety.Why are corporations even allowed to setup speed cameras in a for-profit model.
Radioactive Ass: ReapTheChaos: There used to be hoards of kids walking past my house going to or from school, these days it's 8 or 10 at most. Lazy bastards.More like a combination of helicopter parents and schools not really wanting kids to walk home unattended because of those same helicopter parents. The kids who you saw walking probably had to get a bunch of waivers signed by their parents to allow them to do that, or at least a face to face with the kids teacher to get that to happen.
