Just because you’re paranoid

Doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you. Via Ace of Spades:

Some random clicking led me to this NPR piece on red light cameras which was interesting.

What’s the point of a red-light camera — to make intersections safer or to generate revenue? That’s the question prompted by researchers at the University of Tennessee, who say the cameras are sometimes used in ways that are more likely to make money than to improve safety.

Real shocker that something sold to the public for “safety” would be perverted into a revenue maker that might actually compromise safety, right?

OK, you’re done rolling your eyes now I suppose…moving on…
