Leave the traffic cameras in place

There is nothing wrong with speeding cameras in town or on the interstate. You seldom hear or read this, but you don’t get a speeding ticket in town or on the interstate unless you are going 13 or more miles per hour over the speed limit. If you are, you certainly deserve a ticket and should not be complaining. If a police officer gave you a ticket for going that much over the speed limit there would be no complaining. So, shut up and support the speed cameras.

And I say that any politician who votes against them should be voted out of office. So pass the OK for the cameras, stop complaining and pay the fine you deserve.
