Red Light Camera Alert- Oppose HB 7005 as amended

This bill will be heard tomorrow- Friday 4/11/14 in the House Economic Affairs Committee.

This bill started out good but took a turn for the worse after the last committee amended it. While there are some good things in it such as the kangaroo court costs being reduced from $250 to $100, the really bad thing is it takes away the opportunity for a ticket to be heard in county traffic court by removing the ticketing option. The telling item is that this bill as amended was supported by government lobbyists.

This means every camera scheme ticket will go to kangaroo court, and if you are not aware how that works, then simply stated the cases are heard by people hired by the ones that stand to make money, and they cannot use formal rules of evidence to safeguard our rights.

Note that by being incorporated in a much larger bill, the chances of it being stopped decrease. This is how our current government works and how we got things such as the national ID card.

Thanks for the update. But this is what happens when the people allowed Red Light cameras in the first place while many cities are repealing.
