Kenneth Elowitz: Red-light mess

Red-light mess

It is unbelievable that the Town of Cary would subcontract out our local traffic enforcement while pocketing a whole 12 percent of the proceeds from fines.

Has the latest headline regarding red light cameras not embarrassed us enough?

Are there not enough law enforcement personnel or not enough other means of obtaining revenue?

Why not enforce our speed limits along with motor vehicle insurance and registration requirements with real Town of Cary police officers?

I’m sure we could come up with more revenue than $6 on every $50 ticket.
