Red Light Cameras

In a stunning victory for the asshat drivers of Florida, the Supreme Court of our Peninsula declared that the municipal ordinances treating red light violations as coding violations were not valid.   

The legislature had already fixed this in 2010 by permitting use under Uniform Traffic Codes, but the red light runners were all butt hurt that they got caught and want their money back.  

Plus a bunch of cheap suited lawyers saw a chance to squeeze a bit of coin so they too joined in this landmark civil rights struggle.  

Still the municipalities have the right and in my view, the obligation, to use red light cameras because you're supposed to come to a full stop.   

My guess is that in North Bay Village, we won't have the intestinal fortitude to do it though.  Protecting pedestrians and bicyclists who tend to be kids and old people from asshats driving Suburban Assualt Vehicles through the red lights while texting?  Are you kidding?
