Hurray! If you don't want a ticket from a traffic camera, drive the speed limit. And don't yap about privacy - if you're out in public in a potentially lethal weapon I deserve to be kept safe from your choice to flout the law -

The problem with the cameras in LFP is that the money has never gone directly to traffic and public safety. It has been filtered through the general fund which has paid for all sorts of things before eventually filtering to what the money should be for. At the present, number indicate that revenues from the cameras generate over 10% of the received monies in the city.

We should ask why other local cities like Shoreline, Kenmore and Bothell have not fallen prey to the siren song of red light camera money.

We'd be better served by pulling over drivers with cell phones on their ear.
