In College Station we protested these bitches and had them removed in less than a year.

It was proven the bastards shortened the yellow, and that fender benders increased due to people panic stopping as soon as the green was gone.

This is something that ALWAYS comes up when any redlight camera system is implicated. Every study shows that at every intersection with them there is a significant increase in rear-endings. So not only is the municipality getting revenue from the redlight runners...now they're getting revenue off writing "following too close" tickets.

I am with Hustler. These are unconstitutional. They put them in back home in TN and a mob of people loaded up in a truck with a shot gun and blew the hell out of all of them and ran them over within a week. Then the redlight camera company wanted the poor broke *** local municipality to pay for them for not securing them correctly. Needless to say the remains of the lights were removed never to be seen again.

the Constitution isnt a document to deny power to state gov'ts. It was expressly written simply to outline what the federal gov't can do. Everything else is left up to the states to decided for themselves. If you don;t like it, you need to get a gang mob together and make the change locally.

On a similiar note to the OP, I ******* hate toll roads. Specifically the 183A in texas. I've paid this same ******* toll violation 2 times now. I paid it.. then a month later got another letter saying I still had to pay... it was $3 so I just paid it again to not have to deal with BS. Now today I got another notice, this time for $16 + the toll fee of $3... Now I've had enough of this BS and it's worth my time to fight it.

I do have a .500 S&W Magnum that's perfect for open carry but typically go for the .40 Glock concealed.
