CALGARY Speeding drivers and the cameras that catch them are delivering a forecast $4-million revenue surplus to Calgary Police this year record-shattering fine proceeds that have attracted Mayor Naheed Nenshis eye, the Herald has learned.
The extra money, largely from red-light and speed-on-green cameras, stands to bring more technology upgrades to a police force increasingly keen on video recorders inside its cars and even on officers uniforms.
I tend to agree they are about money. the thing to remember about traffic violations is when enforced by cop they are variable. if its high noon, perfectly sunny and dry day and the highway is empty. the human might ignore you doing 75 in a 65. The computer will issue a ticket.
Cities and states tend to see the forgiveness of nice cops as profit loss. -- [65 Arcanist]Filan(High Elf) Zone: Broadband Reports
