If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so, Thomas JeffersonUnfortunately there are still some communities and states that have either, not yet read the studies indicating that red light cameras cause crashes, or could care less about you because they are of the erroneous belief that red light cameras make them tons of money.
In fact Florida, the home hanging chads and politicians for sale, is expanding their use. Tallahassee, Florida's cutting edge capital city, Florida, just issued a press release announcing they are expanding their use. See:Tallahassee lies, will increase red light cameras and put more citizens in danger
Of course the brilliance of using traffic signals as crash reduction devises is spelled out here by the Florida Department of Transportation:
Will traffic signals reduce intersection crashes?Note, they are not even addressing "Red Light" cameras. But then they don't have to because we do, see:More on Redlight Cameras 1 and how the state uses law against you orRed-Light Cameras Increase Crashes, Florida Researchers Find???
Traffic signals do not prevent crashes. Certain types of crashes can be reduced in number or severity by the installation of a signal, while other types will increase. Where signals are used unnecessarily, the most common results are an increase in total crashes, especially rear-end collisions. Traffic signals are not an answer for every problem intersection. A signal placed at a wrong location can contribute not only to rear-end collisions, but excessive delays, unnecessary travel on alternate routes and more congested traffic flow.
ScienceDaily (Mar. 12, 2008) — Rather than improving motorist safety, red-light cameras significantly increase crashes and are a ticket to higher auto insurance premiums, researchers at the University of South Florida College of Public Health conclude.Now the freaking funny thing about all this is the State law approving the use of Red Light Cameras was passed "after" the study by one of Florida's own University's???????? But then again, The state could not even get a ban on texting while driving in a school zone???????
Ummm, hello again? Anybody out there? Anyone know how such legislative stupidity can exist????
Easy folk, Goldman Sachs has/had a stake in one of the Red light camera systems that the state will be using, and as a senate aide told me, "these halls (capital) are full of wireless money. In other words WE DIE as OUR FREAKING ELECTED POLITICIANS WHORE THEMSELVES OUT!!!!
So of course there is only one answer left REBEL and take the bitches down or put them out of commission. Of course we are only speaking metaphorically here as we know we can not encourage anyone to commit a crime. So please keep that in mind. This a fantasy game o.k.
But in our fantasy we can see that the red light camera mounting mechanism is not all that substantial. In fact it's a little flimsy. Also we have never used a paint ball gun so we have to fantasize about the efficacy of using one of them babies. Maybe you have some fantasies too and would like to share them in the comments section.
Or hell just take a ticket to court. You have a right to defend yourself, call witnesses and face your accuser. Demand the Camera be called into court. Put it on the stand. Ask it, "Could you state your name...." When it fails to answer request the case be dismissed!
Because here's the gig o.k. We are the ones who keep electing these bastards and they keep doing it to us with out the K-Y. Now having growed up where we growed up we lern't sumptin, if you lay down and let somebody take your wallet, they are going to go through your pockets next and then go to your house!
And were not even talking constitutionality here which is like way questionable and we suspect the courts will prove that. But probably not before a whole bunch of Bikers and others are killed.
So now we have a choice and constitution and state legislators and the law be damned, KILL THE DAMN RED LIGHT CAMERAS BEFORE THEY KILL US!
