Victory in MO! Red Light Cameras Turned Off

Breaking News:
Three years after going online, the technology is turned off after a unanimous decision by Missouri's Supreme Court. And the city says this is more far reaching than slipping through a traffic signal.

It started at a Springfield intersection and ended up in front of the Missouri Supreme Court. In April 2008, Adolph Belt was sent a $100 ticket for running a red light. Instead of paying, he went through an administrative process that ended up putting him in front of Missouri's highest court.

"I think the right thing has been done and I was confident it would be done,"
says Belt.

Belt's case garnered a unanimous ruling from justices.

"When you start violating people's constitutional rights by setting up a process not according to statutes of the state, it needs to be corrected," says Belt.

I'm proud to say that last Thanksgiving, friends and family of mine staged
a mini protest of these cameras-now watching this is tinged with VICTORY!

More info:

In a unanimous ruling, the state's high court ruled that Springfield city code is wrong when it requires red-light tickets to be heard in what's called an "administrative proceeding."

"Violations of municipal ordinances such as this one cannot be determined administratively but must be heard in a division of the circuit court ... The administrative proceeding is void, and (the) $100 penalty is vacated."

But we NEED cameras, to be safe

It's important that the people are kept under the watchful eye of their keepers.
Not only should there be a camera on every street corner.
There should be on INSIDE every car, keeping an eye on the driver, like a little plastic Jesus.
OH, and one inside our refrigerator too. A ten dollar fine, every time we reach for PIE, instead of a carrot.

The bathroom too..Wash your hands, citizen!

Ha Ha - I know exactly what

Ha Ha - I know exactly what you mean. For safety we need to have cameras pointed at the desk, in the car, and on the activities of every person on the public payroll. They are our employees and we need to make sure they are doing their jobs and not harming citizens and committing unlawful acts. That would make us a whole lot safer!

Fantastic!

I'm sitting over here in China where there are literally cameras dotting damn near every half block...traffic lights or not.

Its folks like you guys in MO that are leading the way in making sure this does not become standard business in the Land of the Free.

That's Encouraging!

Keep up the fight!
