Commentary from NMA Foundation Executive Director James C. Walker

Electronic surveillance techniques are expanding faster than the means to fight them.

The anger over Suffolk County, NY’s red-light camera racket boiled over at a recent public hearing. But officials still defend the predatory for-profit racket. It will likely take voting out camera supporters among county officials to end the cash grab scam that raised crash rates by almost 60%.

A few Ohio cities and villages are ending ticket camera rackets in the wake of losing state funds in the amount of the camera loot taken in. Others are fighting the new law in the courts.
