    Will the growing use of private, for-profit contractors (such as red-light camera companies or data gatherers using automated license plate readers) for local traffic enforcement lead to more corruption cases like the Chicago/Redflex scandal?

    It seems to me that somebody needs to remind the government that here in America. . . traveling unmolested is a right… Not a privilege.

    As long as the people allow the gradual errosion of fundamental rights then the corporate democracy will take every inch it can get.

    The increased use of red light and speed cameras needs to be reversed. It has been repeatedly shown that the primary goal is to increase revenues, not safety. As citizens of a free Country we should not have cameras following every move we make on public roads.
