oh, a mistake you say ??
couldn't possibly be that she was targeted
for one reason or another ????
disgruntled co-worker, maybe ??
yeah, i know, the story doesn't say so, so it must be a mistake
... i sure hope you aren't that gullible in RL.
excuse you, the machines were BROKE and
human error exacerbated the problem ... but like i said, the machines are working as intended ... they
are ripping-off as many as possible.
i have no paranoia but you can think it all you want.
won't change the facts ... the system is completely flawed.
oh, and since you want to dissect each incident ... here are several more ... enjoy.
There's new criticism of some of those red light cameras placed in Seattle. It's not coming from citizens, but from the City’s traffic
New documents obtained by the KING 5 Investigators show the city knows judges have been throwing cases out of court but has continued to issue

Assistant city attorney Greg Narver says the city hasn't shut the cameras down because it believes the judges are wrong.

After KING 5 began its investigation, the City Attorney’s office said it has started working with the municipal court to get more consistent
notification about these cases when they are dismissed. That way it can appeal the dismissal and have the case heard in superior court.
it seems the pass-the-buck syndrome is alive and well in Washington.
don't ya just love the lawyers
and from the other side of the country ...
Of the 830 tickets challenged in Broward from July 2010 through May 2011, DeLuca and Traffic Hearings Officer Tom Wich upheld just 44 of
them, the Sun-Sentinel reported.
Lawmakers nearly overturned the camera law last session after enacting it in 2010. But a Florida House bill that would have pulled the plug on the
cameras was stalled in the Senate Community Affairs Committee by chairman Mike Bennett, R-Bradenton.

State Rep. Richard Corcoran, R-New Port Richey, who carried the repeal measure and co-sponsored a bill to lengthen yellow lights, disputed the notion
that the camera issue is settled at the Legislature or in the courts.
"The complete opposite is true. Cases in Arizona [corporate home of ATS] are being thrown out on the basis of the equal protection clause,"
Corcoran told Sunshine State News.
Pointing to "myriad complications" and a "lack of uniformity" in enforcement, the representative said the fact that lawmakers are looking at
setting a statewide standard for timing yellow lights suggests "a complete breakdown" of the system.
so, am i the only one who got the heebie-jeebies when i realized the vendor mentioned above is known as "ATS"
and one more for good measure ...
In a court case that resulted in the dismissal of nearly 300 tickets in 2001, a former employee testified that Lockheed Martin IMS, which
operated the San Diego system, regularly scouted intersections in some cities based on high traffic volume, not locations that were most
accident-prone. Documents revealed that officials sought locations with steep gradients and short yellow-light times.

They found that rear-endings had gone up nearly 15 percent after cameras were installed in seven cities, with injuries from such accidents up 24
Right-angle crashes declined by 24 percent, with injuries down nearly 16 percent.
