LOL! I had completely forgotten about the van. You hit the nail on the head about voting these knuckleheads out of office. Hire more cops to serve the citizenry and forget the RLCs! I've got an idea for those who support red light cameras,...................................Next time your waiting on a cop because you REALLY need one (and fast), remember he was replaced by a camera so the city / county / state could make and or save a little money. Pitiful! H/Uany of you old timers around here remember the "radar" van that LaMarque parked on the side of the Gulf Freeway that did exactly what the article describes? I think it cost every politician in that city their job before they removed it. We really need to stand up against things like this. The red light camera on the freeway in League City routinely backs traffic up for over a mile because people won't turn right on it. We need to hold our elected officials responsible for things like this that make traffic worse than it was.
no $ incoming from fixing potholes JR. it's all about money...what a waste of tax money. Need to fix what we have already, like potholes. Not waste it on more **** we do not need.
I hate it when things such as this are used as a method to raise money for a city/state. This is bad, and will only get worst. The US will be a police state if not stopped.
Very true,no $ incoming from fixing potholes JR. it's all about money...
Well if the Lawyer who taught my Intro to Law class was truthful he told us that those tickets are worthless as the paper they are printed on and only suckers pay them and even citied us a case to use if we ever had to go to court to defend one.So what do you think red light cameras do? Not ticketing the driver, just the owner of the car.
what's even worse in baytown, city council wouldn't recognize the petition cncman (2cooler) put together. it seems like they think they're kings and queens...untouchable. no wonder baytown is a bassackwards city with it's only claim to fame is humble oil. even the people that live there shop and dine out in houston or beaumont.Vote the Aholes out of office, thats the best thing to do to them. Irks the fire outa me when people like that go after your money after you vote them in office for telling you how THEY GONNA HELP YOU AND YOUR COMMUNITY!!! PUKES! With this site and the community here there should be more than enough info. pass through here to be able to pin point who to vote for and who to vote out of office. Oh, T1TGA be careful what ya say! never know who is reading this stuff.
O K, little help for those of us who don't know what to look for.
Here in Kingwood, some time ago (shortly after some type of camera was attached to a long pipe-like support was affixed to the cross-arm supporting the traffic lights) the local newspaper,The Observer, ran an article stating that these cameras were to assist in the flow of traffic, i.e., electronically control the timing sequence between red and green, depending upon traffic status.
Now I don't know if these described cameras were actually traffic assistants or traffic police. However, in the last few days I have noticed that the mounted cameras appear to be different...so, I too am wondering if Kingwood now has "mounted police" to generate $ for the City of Houston??
Anyone have a photograph of what these different cameras look like?
