"Obey the rules"
it only works in a controlled unrealistic environment... there are times for my own safety and the safety of others that I have broken the law. At least 2 times if I had not broken the law someone would have likely died.
The big issue I have with the red/speeding combo camera is that people are going to be slamming on their brakes now and causing rear end collisions. The natural instict when a light goes orange is to have the evaluate the situation...
- is someone on my tail
- is it safer for me to go through the orange
- do i have enough room to go through
If someone is a local and aware of the red light/speed combo on an intersection they are likely to just slam on the brakes now without making a correct assessment of the situation.
I think it is just another step towards a false hope of a "Safe" society... life is dangerous... always has been, always will be. People get sick, people catch germs, people make mistakes, people die, people get injured, people break things. IT IS ALL A PART OF LIFE!!!!!!
Trying to get rid of "danger" from every part of life is stupid it's all part of the mass fear campaign that rages from those in power... create a need for your being in charge because you can protect the people from "danger"!!!!
Be scared of the enemy (german/japanese/russian/korean/middle eastern), the cold war, the hole in the ozone layer, the global warming, the terrorists, the $$$ meltdown... blah blah blah...
how about they just piss off and let me ride
Man I am a conspiracy theorist! :)
I agree with you HQ... cameras in school zones and that should be it... WONT SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!
