$6.3 Million Gone in a Flash

You know, I have been seeing more and more red light cameras being put up at intersections throughout New Castle County.  I wonder if the same arrangement is in place here: a private firm that owns the cameras gets a cut of each ticket when someone runs a red light.  I’m all for idiots who speed through red lights getting fined and/or pulled over to converse with a member of our law enforcement teams, but I’m not sure a private company should be profiting off of that.  Enforcement of law shouldn’t be about profit generation for private companies.  Just my $0.02.
