I don’t like Water Meters, but I hate Photo Radar. No, I’ve never been caught yet, but to me Photo Radar represents the worst of those paranoid “Big Brother” theories coming home to roost.
Arizona looks like they’ll be pulling theirs down. Good for them. Maybe it’s more of a reason to consider visiting them this winter or next depending on if and when they make the move? L I N K
“Profits are far below expectations, a citizen effort to ban the cameras is gaining steam, the governor has said she does not like the program, and more and more drivers are ignoring the tickets they get in the mail after hearing from fellow speeders that there are often no consequences to doing so.
“I see all the cameras in Arizona completely coming down ” in 2010, said Shawn Dow, chairman of Arizona Citizens Against Photo Radar“
I don’t even think most police like it much. I know that I’ve spoken to an officer or two that loves nailing a high speed racer on the 401 as though it’s a trophy hunt kill.
I know some area’s of Quebec now have photo radar and I can tell you I now avoid Quebec. It’s not because I’m a speed demon in my old Taurus wagon or Dodge Caravan, it’s the principle. To me photo radar is cheating.
I know this all sounds a bit insane, but it seems that nowadays because we as a society in so many ways have lost our compass we seem to have to legislate commons sense.
So take em all down. And I personally say boycott places that have them. I will not vacation in any place I know of that has photo radar. And if Cornwall ever even thought to implement such nonsense I’d be the first person to lead a rally against it.
