For those following this blog, it should come as no surprise that I'm not a fan of Red Light Cameras. I believe they are much more about revenue enhancement than they are about safety, and I think they serve only to further the growth of the Police State. So, I was pleasantly surprised to find a politician advocating for their specific ban. Of course, this is in New Jersey, so it has no direct effect on me, but I believe in praising the praiseworthy.
Senator Mike Doherty of New Jersey has sponsored legislation that would make the Red Light Cameras a thing of the past in New Jersey. This is one politician who seems to get it. Good job Senator Doherty. Keep it up.
