Well, right off the bat… how do you like our new look? We’ve been diligently working on this new concept and we’re not done yet. Yes, we would like your input since you; the reader is the one looking at it, what do you think? What can we do to improve? Please let us know. We always like hearing from you.
We’re working on lots of new “stuff” so this week I’ll be brief… the red light cameras in the City of Los Angeles have been shut down. We can only assume they will stay dormant but if anything changes, we’ll let you know. The next step is having the damn things removed from the intersections so that we really know they’re gone… we’ll see if and when that happens.
Remember though that the cameras in many other municipalities are still active and doing business as usual so be careful out there. The most “popular” red light camera ticket is the right turn on red… I slowed down… I thought I stopped (but probably didn’t) citation… they keep on coming.
And to touch up on a previous subject that we talked about a few weeks back… remember those two officers that sued the City of L.A. because of the quota, the one that didn’t exist, you know, about handing out a specific number of tickets that no one wants to talk about, yes, that law suit. Well, ten more LAPD officers have followed on their footsteps allegedly citing punishment for not writing a determined number of traffic citations. They claim that their supervisors retaliated against them for refusing to follow orders and meet the previously mentioned non existing traffic ticket quota.
So, then… red light cameras in your town, traffic ticket quotas in your local PD… have any suggestions? Am I the only one talking? What about the red and gold colors for the blog? Too much?
