I can’t believe the Jan. 7 editorial, Red light cameras are producing safer streets.
It extolled the virtues of red-light cameras and why such an atrocious device should be preserved, while ducking the main reason they should be scrapped such as they often ticket the wrong driver.
The camera takes a picture of the car, but not the person driving it.
Every day red-light cameras result in citations being issued to the owners of cars involved in violations rather than to the driver of the car.
Under the threat of losing their driver’s licenses, many car owners are forced to pay fines for violations committed by someone else. This abrogation of due process cannot be excused under the guise of safer streets.
