my opinion is that i feel like i am being discriminated against and singled out because of where i live. I have recieved a few camera tickets and will agree to speeding and paid them'but i was behind a knox police car on chapman hwy. turned right onto moody and got a ticket for not stopping for 3 seconds or some bologna. I know the policeman in front of me didn't stay stopped for 3 complete seconds(is that right?). Any way i leave my neighborhood there are cameras everywhere around me(some have few or none).When i bought this house here there were none! Is that really fair? The way city and county taxes go up constantly why can't the police force continue without cameras? We pay more and more money for less and less services-just look at the conditions of our streets, WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO ???????? And one last comment i want everyone to know is if you get pulled over for speeding please ask to see the radar-i did on james white bridge and i know i wasn't speeding and asked to see the radar-the policeman gave me my liscense back got in his car and sped away! Things are getting soo corrupt and cut-throat. All policeman are not crooked but i believe this one was and i wish i would have got his badge # or name. I just want to know how many policeman have recieved camera tickets and did they have to pay them?

It is sad when your government doesn't trust it's own citizens without spying on them, and then they wonder why the citizens don't trust or like them, and why they try to get them removed from office.

In my opinion the traffic light tickets are a form of extortion. It is a private company taking pictures of folks breaking the law and then sending them pictures in the mail threatening to turn them over to the police if they do not pay their private company.
