Miami judge rules red-light cameras break state law. Will it help you beat your ticket? (Miami Herald)

Good news. Righteous ruling. Here in St. Augustine Beach, red light cameras were proposed by City Hall burghers, led by SABPD Chief Robert Hardwick, who had police chiefs from other jurisdictions come and present unreliable "testimony" that was not worthy of belief. The late Robert Kahler, Tom Reynolds (a/k/a "Who the hell is Tom Reynolds?) and I led the forces opposed to red light cameras. Defeated. Done. Gone. ATS has now changed his name, but remains a vicious viperous cancer on the State of Florida. Even rebarbative retromingent St. Johns County" Sheriff" DAVID SHOAR opposes red light cameras, a stench in the nostrils of our Nation.

Red light cameras are for-profit revenue devices, not safety devices. At most camera intersections the Florida Department of Transportation forbids the cities from setting long enough yellow intervals for the actual conditions. The yellows which are often short by 0.5 to 0.9 seconds give most tickets to safe drivers who make inadvertent split second violations because the yellows were left or set slightly too short.

Almost every ticket for a slow rolling right on red turn goes to a safe driver as well. Research by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in a Report to Congress showed that right on red turns - including those with or without a full stop - were involved in only six one-hundredths of one percent (0.06% or 0.0006) of crashes with injuries or fatalities. The cameras should be banned by law statewide.
