Another article to "fix"... I'll just include snippets to avoid the wrath of the "copyright police"
Suuure.... read on...“Simply we started this to help reduce accidents,” said Don Kenney, Deputy Chief for the Toledo Police Department.Planned on collecting a certain amount? Right after saying "we started this to help reduce accidents"Former Toledo mayor Carty Finkbeiner planned on collecting $2.5 million in fines in 2009.What a bunch of retards. People realize they're being fleeced and they'll get TOWED for it? It's not like they're hogging a parking space here.“We want to be able to tow a vehicle for two or more unpaid fines after the date of the appeal has past,” said Kenney.Once again, proof that REVENUE is the motive. But then, if it was about SAFETY, they would post a real LEO at the problem intersection and not a camera, and he would issue WARNINGS.Police officers met with the city council today to discuss that and other ways of collecting the money from drivers who ignore the ticket.Revenue goal! (Man, this is more fun than the old "punch buggy" game!)They have a goal to collect $1.2 million this year from people who get caught by traffic cameras.I'm sure the speed limits are underposted, and what do you want to bet the yellow lights are too short too?? And I'm sure they have "no right turn on red" in places where it's unneeded too, and issuing camera tickets to "violators".“I don’t think they’re criminals, I just think they’re people who don’t want to part with the money, but they know it’s there, they know the speed limit, and they know to stop for a red light.”
Man, if I lived there and I got "booted" for a camera ticket I'd be hacksawing that boot off and shoving it up the mayor's... well you know...

If I'm passing you on the right, YOU are in the wrong lane!
If speed kills, how come I'm still alive?
