We thought that sharing it with everyone here was the right thing to do.
I just sent this email to the Chamber of Commerce in Port Lavaca, Texas:
I recently traveled from my home in Oregon to tour the Texas Gulf Coast. When I returned home, I found a red light camera ticket in the mail from your city. It clearly shows me turning right on red with no cross traffic and no one in the crosswalk, which I believe is legal in Texas. The only options I have to respond are to pay the erroneous ticket, or return to Port Lavaca for a hearing. Attempts to contact the issuing agency have been unsuccessful - the phone numbers supplied reach the private company that supplies the cameras. Needless to say, I am not coming to your town to argue this erroneous ticket. I will also not visit your city again because of this extortionary treatment I have received. I don't believe this is the impression you want visitors to have about your city.
Sincerely, David Stone
