Red Light Cameras

The government claims that red light cameras are necessary for safety, but our national anthem declares America as the “land of the free” and not the land of the safe. Liberty and government cameras are diametrically opposed. Before government installs another camera, we should first reword the anthem to the land of the used to be free. Otherwise, we just look more ridiculous every time we sing it. And the only ones laughing at us harder than the rest of the world are the arrogant politicians and the camera vendors. These cameras are a betrayal of our nation and our heritage. And they’re a betrayal of all those who gave life and limb in defense of freedom.

If government were truly concerned about our safety, it would provide education before regulation. The lack of any legitimate public awareness campaign demonstrates that government must have an ulterior motive. Most people believe that the cameras are about money, not safety.

Besides, governments lie about safety as the cameras appear to be more dangerous. Driving has turned into a game of Russian roulette. At every yellow light we’re now forced to make a split second decision to slam on the brake or the gas. And as we approach lights we’re distracted by the search for cameras.

But government’s biggest betrayal is that the cameras are unpopular. And government knows they’re unpopular. Not only has government betrayed our nation and heritage, but it’s also directly betrayed the people. We have a name for betrayal of country. We call it treason.

Government’s best kept secret is that legislators hold power with only 3 percent of the electorate. If you’re concerned, explore landoftheusedtobefree.com, share it and join our growing voting block today.

  1. If the government were actually concerned with safety at traffic lights, they would NOT forbid cities to set yellow intervals at most lights to be long enough for at least 85% of the drivers. Before July 2011 that was required by the Florida Department of Transportation. After September 2013 it became forbidden.

    Florida residents need to call and write their state Representatives, Senators, and the Governor to politely but clearly insist that House Bill 6007 and Senate Bill 178 to totally ban red light cameras become law. Let each official know you find the cameras to be unacceptable and that complete removal is the only acceptable solution. Contact information:

  2. Red light cameras are government-run for-profit rackets that require giving most tickets to safe drivers for harmless technical fouls that do not cause crashes. The cameras need to be made illegal in every state, as they are in some already. They are essentially highway robbery.
