If Clearwater can end the contract with Redflex for only $54,000 dollars, it would be a terrific bargain.
Red light camera tickets strip over $100 per ticket from the Clearwater economy which damages employment and economic activity throughout the Clearwater area.
AND the cameras do not improve safety as much as simply adding one second to the yellow intervals on the traffic lights.
Clearwater should drop the cameras, increase the yellow intervals by one second, and keep hundreds of thousands of dollars circulating in the Clearwater economy over the next ten years.
If you agree, call your local council officials to insist the camer program be ended and the yellow light intervals be lengthened by an average of one second to improve safety overall.
