Cameras Are ComingJuly 18th, 2007 by bremerton-beat
There was nary a soul in the council audience Wednesday to protest the city’s implementation of traffic cameras to catch red-light runners and school zone speeders.
There was one critic on the stand. Adam Brockus voted against it, saying he hadn’t overcome his fears that the program was a step toward the “Big Brother” that oversaw every aspect of life in the novel 1984.
Brockus was alone in his vote against the program.
People have protested it here before, but I predict we’ll really hear about it once the cameras start shooting photos.
Assuming it follows the life cycle the program has elsewhere, it will become a fact of life, unless someone takes the city to something beyond municipal court. As mentioned in a previous post, there have been lawsuits.
