Regarding your story on the red-light cameras, I truly feel this is a money grab by the city. Indeed, the American Traffic Solutions contract was extended because the city has already budgeted the funds squeezed from its citizens.

The red-light cameras are an abrogation of due process and our rights as citizens. Anyone who has had to deal with ATS knows the frustration of the loss of our access to due process.

I will not vote for any politician who votes for, or otherwise supports, the red-light cameras.
