PinkDome gripes about Cameras at the Red Lights

PD, after, apparently, a hard night of drinking Veuve Ciquot, is on a tear. I guess he thinks there are other, higher priorities. Specifically:

  • Drunk drivers leaving downtown at 2 a.m.
  • …idiots driving 50 mph on MOPAC and IH-35. (I think we should shoot to kill these people)
  • Failure to use turn signals
  • Speeders on surface streets in my neighborhood.

My personal opinion:

If folks can’t be responsible enough (Folks like this person, for example) to stop at red lights, I say take their picture, fine them, slow them down.

Before they kill someone.

Like my daughter.

(There is an alternative to posting cameras at red lights – put more of the existing police force at red lights, or hire more cops and station them at red lights. I suspect the cameras are more cost efficient.)


Tell me what you're thinking...
