Milwaukee alderman Tony Zielinski is calling for red light cameras.
“We need to be able to do a better job of deterring people from running red lights at all times across our city, and that’s why I am pushing the state Legislature to allow Milwaukee to put in place a citywide red-light camera system.”
Zielinski’s statement doesn’t say how much it’ll cost or how the city would pay for it (but we know, don’t we, Tony).
Lots of flaws in this proposal.
What if the car is being driven by someone other than the driver?
What if the car has no plates?
What if the car was stolen?
Ironically Zielinski admits that the plan would raise revenue. Pardon me for being cynical but that might be the primary motivation here as opposed to greater safety.
