Say goodbye to red light cameras California

This from Calwatch:

While the state collects millions of dollars from red-light cameras at intersections, a few California cities are starting to question whether the safety benefits are worth the high cost to their own coffers.

Other cities have rejected automatic ticketing programs as well, including Union City near San Jose, Yucaipa and Costa Mesa, Cupertino, Compton, El Monte, Fairfield, Fresno, Fullerton, Indian Wells, Irvine, Maywood, Montclair, Moreno Valley, Paramount, Rancho Cucamonga, Redlands, Roseville, San Carlos, Santa Fe Springs, Santa Maria, Santa Rosa and Upland.

Sadly neither Pasadena nor Baldwin Park make the list of California cities reconsidering the cost effectiveness of red light cameras.

  1. So why is this scurrilous, money-grabbing, pocket-picking intrusion not a violation of the equal protection clause of the Constitution? True, the 14th Amendment started out as a guarantee against unequal justice being meted out by “State” governments but has since been expanded to include the Federal government.
    Why, then should local governments get a free pass and be allowed to rob it’s citizenry under the most transparent rationalization(s) imaginable.
    I can’t think of anything that cries out more for “protection” than from the tax happy bureaucrats that steal from us under the ridiculous and patently untrue cloak of “public safety.”
