Temple Terrace, FL "SCAM ON RED WEEK"
The City of Temple Terrace and ATS and KNOWN SCAMERA FUNDED "GROUP" National "Campaign" (you mean of Camera Vendors Campaign Don't ya) Stop RLR is up to their yearly propaganda stunt.
I left following post on this site.
(Unlike SUPPOSEDLY BANISHED ATS VP Bill Kroske, I DON'T HIDE THAT I POST.
More info on Kroske: http://www.banthecams.org/Taking-on-the-Government/ats-claims-of-cash-qsavingsq-from-rlc-believable-as-a-post-from-w-howard.html and http://heraldnet.com/article/20120726/BLOG48/707269979/-1/NEWS01)
Here is my post.
THE RLC DO NOT WORK! In fact the videos these vendors POST SHOWING RLV crashes IRONICALLY CAPTURED BY A RLC PROVE THE RLC DO NOT WORK!
Why don't they just call it "SCAM ON RED WEEK"
That is about what this is.
Do you know that National Campaign to Stop RLR WAS FUNDED AND FOUNDED BY CAMERA VENDORS???? http://www.motorists.org/red-light-cameras/biggest-supporters
Quote: "Far from being a group of grass-roots safety do-gooders, the organization is actually in the business of selling expensive red-light cameras to communities.
The national campaign is run by a Washington, D.C., public relations agency that was hired by the nation's biggest operator of traffic surveillance systems."
IN Fact ATS FUND THEIR OWN FRONT GROUP National Coalition for Safer Roads. http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/35/3585.asp
Documents incorporating NCSR Inc as a nonprofit entity in the state of Missouri confirm that NCSR is anything but the independent campaign of "victims, parents, medical professionals and first responders" as the group's publicity material suggests. NCSR's board of directors instead consists of three individuals: James D. Tuton, ATS president; George J. Hittner, ATS General Counsel; and Charles Territo, ATS spokesman.
RLC ARE A FRAUD!
Heck in ATS St. Pete a former FHP (Officer) FOUND THE CITY's 60% "reduction" FALSE!
http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/38/3827.asp or http://www.thenewspaper.com/rlc/docs/2012/fl-spanalysis.pdf
Quote: In the "before" period, there were a total of 6, 12 and 10 accidents in 2008, 2009 and 2010 respectively -- for an overall average of 9.3. After the cameras were activated, there were ten crashes total. At five intersections, accidents increased. At four intersections, they decreased. The remaining intersection stayed the same.
"Utilizing the data from the city, there is no way to arrive at a 60 percent reduction in crashes caused by red light running," Henry concluded. "However, the director did not say crashes caused by red light running, he used the term 'red-light related' crashes. This parsing of words is of little relevance in light of the factual data obtained and analyzed. The statement of any reduction cannot be supported with the data available, which shows the average increased post-camera by 7 percent."
AS for the "violation" claims REALIZE THAT VENDORS LIKE ATS HAVE BEEN BUSTED MANIPULATING that in the past.
Quote: "Baytown, Texas is easing up on issuing red light camera tickets in the hopes of diverting momentum away from a planned effort to place a photo enforcement ban on the ballot. Resident Byron Schirmbeck and a team of volunteers expect soon to turn in a second petition forcing a referendum. Statistics show that, in response, city officials and American Traffic Solutions have deliberately issued fewer citations. The program rejected 29 percent of violations in July 2008, but documents show the rate of rejections climbed to 54 percent in December."

FIGHT THE FRAUD!
Ban the CAMS!
Here is ATS (by use of a Front Man) latest game, DENYING THE PUBLIC A RIGHT TO VOTE ON BANNING RLC! http://www.banthecams.org/Court-Decisions/democracy-denied-in-murrieta-ca-by-ats-front-man-ats-still-qdeniesq-they-are-involved.html
(BILL KROSKE IS A SUPPOSEDLY LET GO VP in 2011 who still seems to HAVE A ATS EMAIL IN 2012!)
Quote: On March 27, Murrieta Police Corporal Jay Froboese emailed Kroske to let him know the city manager decided not to extend the city's red light camera contract with ATS in light of the pending referendum vote. This infuriated Kroske, who immediately contacted Murrieta Mayor Douglas R. McAllister.
"We had thought that we were in accord to help defeat the initiative in November as it is a bad policy to have for certain city decisions, such as public safety, decided by public vote," Kroske wrote. "In Washington State, we have fought this approach in the courts and at every level -- attached is the latest decision. We attempted to have a discussion on such an option for you, but could get a conference with your attorney or city manager."
Kroske referenced the lawsuit against the Mukilteo referendum that he filed using the name of a local resident to disguise ATS involvement in the suit. ATS counsel Vanessa Soriano Power even told the Washington Supreme Court that the company was not behind the suit, even though Kroske's emails from July 2011 suggest that is not true.

I have been trying unsuccessfully for some time to get a simple response from a REAL person or a REAL phone number. i have suffered a horrible experience at the hands of our local Gestapo - heavy fines - lost my civil rights - been subjected to mass incompetence,harassment and more after gettinf one of THOSE letters. I have proveable FIFTY FIVE year FLAWLESS driving record (or at least had) before this.
I believe the camera scam is one of the greatest threats to American liberty and freedoms I have seen in a while.
I SPECIFICALLY am alluding to the next logical step for these reptiles to take. A similar camera in every street on every city and town ( with associated increse intaxes) in America replete with HUGE back breaking fines that will impoverish a large percentage of family heads - criminalize those who cannot pay and cause the greatest resentment towards corrupt law enforcement I have seen since a child.
The fines I paid were such that the money would have fed me and paid my gas and half of my utility bills for at least two months! I was totally disenfranchised fromany contact with the judicial system. My licence was suspended and even my boating rights taken away. My story needs to be shared with others.
Even though I lost my business and part of my life savings in the economic collapse of 2008 -I could afford the extortion - many decent struggling families can NOT! No deaths or even property damage was involved. What we see happing here are NOT simply 'fines' - it was EXTORTION GREED and CORRUPTION based on lies and fraud!
I would REALLY like to use my talents and get involved. If only some REAL person would give me a phone call. I am intelligent resourceful credentialled and motivated. As I mentioned - my driving record was pristine for a half century. I was STILL treated like so much street trash for weeks!
