PLEASE DON'T ARGUE THAT RED LIGHT CAMERAS AREN'T JUST ABOUT GENERATING REVENUE FOR BROKE-ASS KANSAS CITY!!!



Don't get it twisted . . . It's not like I'm arguing for stiffer penalties (nullus) . . .

Running a red light is no longer mentioned in Kansas City's red-light-camera ordinance after the city council revamped the law's wording Wednesday.

But c'mon . . . Red light cameras are a tax on careless drivers and just another excuse for more people to stay in the suburbs or avoid traveling East where so many cams are (strangely) set up.

Red light cameras are a tax on careless drivers who will actually pay the ticket. Since half the population in KCMO will not pay tickets I would suppose there are tens of thousands unpaid unless the KCPD simply looks at the auto and driver and decides not to send out a ticket.

"(6) Basis for citation. Recorded images shall constitute sufficient basis for citation and shall be admitted in evidence if, alone or in combination, they clearly show a violation of this section and the license plate and license number of the motor vehicle."

Without an officer present, the images cannot be certified as true and accurate and are not evidence. This scam still relies on bullshit, intimidation and self-incrimination.

No point in arguing the obvious.

I can not wait to get one of these stupid ass tickets. Not only have the red light tickets often been issued with virtually no probable cause, we now have a city official communicating the new ordinance was written to avoid the necessity of probable cause and adequate evidence in court. Can't wait to get this one in front of the S.C. and then sue the shit out of the city. What next? The state reclassify sodomy as following too close in order to improve the conviction rate?

Wonder when the City Council will be concerned about the murder rate rather than their contractor making a few bucks off careless drivers?

I've always wanted to put duct tape over the license plates of my truck then me and some of my buddies jump in the back while my wife drives and runs those red lights, then when the camera catches that violation, me and my buddies drop our pants and the camera can get a nice 8X10 glossy of our bare asses. That would be a great way to kill an evening.
