Wally007: The real issue no one is talking about is WHY do our public official need bribing to help keep us safe? THAT should be the concern here.
You Are All Sheep: If those cameras were put up as a result of bribes, then they need to be removed and have the democratic process take place.
Triumph: Bribes in California, Washington, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Florida, New Jersey, Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia.The only thing that surprises me is that Louisiana, Illinois, Rhode Island and Maryland missed the cut.
Parthenogenetic: You whining hippies make me sick.1) It is THE LAW to obey traffic signals. You are all such self-centered asses that you think it is more important that you save a few minutes by blowing off a red light than it is to drive safely.B) You are always complaining that corporations should work for the good of the community. Redflex provides technology that enhances traffic safety, which benefits everybody in the community.3) There aren't many opportunities for Job Creators and Public Servants to work together to achieve a common goal that helps the community. You libtardos should be praising this public/private venture, not vilifying it.You are all just a bunch of red light-running, scofflaw, anti-business, perpetually disgruntled HYPOCRITES.
pxlboy: You make a good point, but we all know that politicians and their corporate sponsors rarely see any jail time or anything that remotely resembles punishment.
Mikey1969: Yeah, this has been known for YEARS in Arizona. The real giveaway was that if 'X' number of tickets weren't generated, then the city/state had to pay a penalty. If this doesn't scream "sweetheart deal", I don't know what does.I liked how when they "debunked" the Red Light Camera blocking license plate covers on Mythbusters, Redflex was the company doing the "testing". Nothing about that company is above board. I wouldn't trust them to show me where the sky was if we were all standing outside.
