Albuquerque's Red Light Cameras Must Go
Frankly, I am flabbergasted by the idea that the Albuquerque City Council thinks that if voters decide that Red Light Cameras must go, it still has the final say so on the matter. What are these clowns thinking? I am getting a really bad taste about this city council...First they come up with this Scam against the Residents of Albuquerque, now they want to overrule the voice of the people.
Wait just one minute! Is this America? Or is this China? Am I to understand that my vote that I used to elect some of these jokers was a waste?
It is time to start a grassroot movement against these incumbent city councillors, and throw them out of office.
As one of the individuals who personally felt extorted out of $600 for two violations, I was subjected to threats. These threats to law abiding citizens were very onbecoming. Why don't they get their act together and start coming up with creative ideas on how to solve the city's problems?
The City Leaders have tried time and again to defend this program, that it is a great success; in reality, it has been an abject failure. What have we learned from this experience? This program is operated by an out-of-state firm that basically hires temporary workers and pay them minimum wage. It does not provide any benefits to its employees, yet for some reason our city council thinks it's a great source of revenue.
Question for the city council, Why was it necesary to change the duration of the AMBER Light that caused many motorist to be caught in the intersection? Is this what you call Increasing Public Safety? The best use of taxpayers' money in my opinion would be to hire more uniformed police afficers and let them do random speed traps across the city. There is no reason why money from residents should be used to hire an out of state contracters. The Red Light Camera has lived it's useful life...Let's defeat it om October 4, 2011
