Bill Rogers opposes the Red Light Cameras

I was glad to see this from my rep on WHMI. These cameras are bad news and is a big issue in the transportation committee. Thank you, Bill.

State Representative Bill Rogers is speaking out against proposed legislation that would allow red light cameras to be installed in Michigan. House Bill 4763 has been taken up for testimony by the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. It would give local municipalities the ability to install red light cameras at their most dangerous intersections. It carries a requirement for those intersections to follow the state’s yellow light timing standards. Rogers is opposed to the bill, which he says is a way to generate revenue rather than improve public safety. In a press release, he pointed out that those caught on camera would have to pay a fine for a moving violation but would not receive any points on their license. (TD) 

I've dealt with these from personal experience - without ever being at the intersection in the first place.
