Red-light cameras: Let the people decide | Commentary

Given the choice of being regulated by red light cameras or coming down with botulism, I believe most Americans would opt for food poisoning.

The great thing about America is you usually can decide what’s best for your health and well-being. Now the Florida Legislature might curtail that freedom when it comes to red light cameras.

Florida House subcommittee voted last week to repeal legislation that established red light cameras in the state. Similar bills have failed the past few years, but proponents think they might have the votes to ban red light cameras in this year’s session.

The would be fine by me. The problem is how we get to that desired result and who should decide.
