Commentary from NMA Executive Director James C. Walker

Facial recognition systems are often flawed, can be very easily abused, and we need to fight them at every opportunity.

We are slowly winning the red-light camera racket battles with one system gone in AZ and another in CA. There are only 28 active red-light camera rackets in CA, a state that once had over 100.

839 of 898 violation warnings at one intersection in Colorado Springs new red-light camera racket is pretty certain proof the lights are deliberately mis-engineered at that location.

New York’s 2,000 “school zone” speed camera racket with cameras operating at times NO kids will be present shows how desperate NYC is for camera racket loot. I won’t be going there anytime soon – especially with the new congestion fee rip off.

Maybe Tennessee will be the next state to ban red-light cameras, they already made right on red camera tickets illegal.
