In the local newspapers "vox populi" someone wrote about a camera that was being put in at an intersection near my house.
"It really stresses me out to think that I might get a $200 ticket if I run that light and the camera catches me."
"It really stresses me out that someone will plow into the back of my car while I'm trying to stop to avoid getting that $200 ticket."
The county said that they were putting it in to promote safety at that intersection.
Several months later, they disabled the camera because "It wasn't making any money."
Yes Sir..... It was all about "Safety" !
"The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?"
