A thumbs down to red light ticket cameras

Published December 30. 2011 05:02PM

Dear Editor:

This is an open letter to all your readers who drive:

I am asking for your help to ban photo traffic enforcement in Pennsylvania.

As a motorist, you know how important road safety is when exercising your inalienable right to freedom of travel.

Photo enforcement exists to raise revenue. It does this by causing more crashes, injuries and fatalities. Money, not safety, is the goal.

Currently in the Pennsylvania Legislature, there are bills to spread red light ticket cameras throughout the Commonwealth, and to renew Philadelphia's failed red light ticket camera fiasco.

Please write, fax, email, and call your Senator and Representative, and all members of the House and Senate Transportation Committees, remind them that cameras cause more crashes, injuries, and fatalities, and demand a permanent, statewide ban on red light ticket cameras. HB 1232 is up for a vote on January 3, 2012. Tell them to vote it down.

The life you save may be your own. Thank you.

Sincerely yours,

Tom McCarey

Berwyn, Pa.
