CAMERAS: Stop complaining and obey traffic laws

I am sick and tired of hearing people complain about red light cameras and possible fines.

Who is in control here? It’s not the state driving your vehicle. Follow traffic laws, and you will not have to pay a dime. It’s as simple as that.

I am very glad that these cameras are policing red light runners, and if cities make a few bucks because of these irresponsible drivers, so be it.

I don’t expect anything else from Tim Eyman, but Chris Hurst? Really?

    Has anyone here have a driveway that crosses a sidewalk?
    Do you come to a complete stop before the sidewalk?
    If you dont, you are breaking the law.
    Just imagine extending the camera’s to every inch of your driving.
    How many people would be guilty then? ANY infraction, no matter how small would be scrutinized. Not one person here is 100% innocent, so they are hypocrites if they say they comply 100%.
    The main issue is Big Brother invading every portion of our life.
    If it doesn’t stop soon, where will it end?

    Just to be sure, I’ll put anti-skid in my bathtub in case the law changes on bathroom safety (accidents are prevalent here to, ya know!)

    OH MY GOD!!! And what if the Aliens come and blow up the world.

    Just obey the stupid laws and you won’t have problems.

    You ever spank your wife in bed? OOOOO, I’m telling!

    Actually….Yes and Yes.

    So, can you explain your stance? Or are you, as the majority of silly little no life clowns on these threads, just shooting off your mouth on baseless assumptions? HAA!! :D

    I simply stated fact in response. I DO have a drive way that crosses a sidewalk…and I DO stop before crossing it. It happens to be a blind crossing as it is surrounded by tall hedges and is frequented by walkers, joggers, and small kids on bicycles. Its just the common sense, safe thing to do.

    Of course I know that common sense has disappeared along line same lines as doing basic arithmetic with a pencil! HAAAA!! :D

    And I STILL question myself as to why I waste time coming in here anymore to read the insanely juvenile comments made by people I share a town with.
    Take a look at other news sources around the country where they offer a place to post comments. The commenting readership of the TNT should be embarrassed! HAA! :D
