let me get on my soap box....
I think we need more cops writing tickets and more cops available for calls. I also believe we should double their pay and I am an advocate for additional training resources for the officers. We should also have the best resources available to officers who are injured or are lost in the line of work and for the families of those officers.
I will be running for mayor in the future for those who would like to join my campaign.

Whoa Thanks Daytona for the soap box.
I've been given warnings multiple times. It was then when i realized that giving out tickets wasnt the sole purpose in life for HPD. I've even gotten to know a few HPD and know they do more than shoot lasers at people.
Thanks for what you do.
Thank you in advance for all the "warnings" you will give to other riders out there...

America is not the same country it was in the 70's and with the population growth and issues dealing with the public and politics I can understand way our city has changed to these drastic steps.
I'm also a Victim of a Red Light runners from 2 seperate accidents. One of the drivers was drunk with no insurance and the other driver fell asleep at 50mph.
So for all you who really think this is a bad idea then move somewhere like Montgomery County but I'm sure they'll be soon to follow.

I have mixed feelings about this. I do not mind red light cameras, but what I don't like is the gradualism behind it. As previously stated, first red light cameras, then what? Speed cameras? Then what? States controlling my thermostat in my home (like suggested in Cali)? Then what? Cameras in my home making sure I'm not doing something wrong? Transponder on my car to tell how fast I go, where I go, and how frequently I go there?
There's too many what if's here. I feel that soon enough we won't even be able to breathe with out consent and I will fight however I need to in oder to ensure freedom for myself, my children, their children, etc.
So anyway, red light cameras aren't that evil, it's just what is to follow after them, IMO.
This is straight from webster:
1. the state of being free or at liberty rather than in confinement or under physical restraint: He won his freedom after a retrial.
2. exemption from external control, interference, regulation, etc.
3. the power to determine action without restraint.
4. political or national independence.
5. personal liberty, as opposed to bondage or slavery: a slave who bought his freedom.
6. exemption from the presence of anything specified (usually fol. by from): freedom from fear.
7. the absence of or release from ties, obligations, etc.
8. ease or facility of movement or action: to enjoy the freedom of living in the country.
9. frankness of manner or speech.
10. general exemption or immunity: freedom from taxation.
11. the absence of ceremony or reserve.
12. a liberty taken.
13. a particular immunity or privilege enjoyed, as by a city or corporation: freedom to levy taxes.
14. civil liberty, as opposed to subjection to an arbitrary or despotic government.
How are we free if big brother is always watching us and taking measures to control our actions? With freedom comes responsibility, yes, but soon enough, at this current rate, we won't even have the choice.
Just my .02.
