Governments that install traffic cameras are not out any money unless not enough tickets are issued.
Society is glued together by the moral or legal norm that we all agree to live within.
If we all came to a complete stop and waited three seconds as stated in the RCW, the cities/counties that have put cameras in will pull them as they would cost too much to operate.
Instead of screaming about the windfall to cash-strapped municipalities, let us scream about the scofflaws.
When I started driving in 1971, yellow meant “Prepare to stop.” Why aren’t we doing that?
I have driven back and forth to work in Puyallup, Fife and Tacoma since the cameras have been coming on line. I have yet to receive a notice of infraction.
I wish more people would, “Prepare to stop.”
