“For The Children” Update

Warning Revenue CameraAnyone with a firing neuron or two knows that red light (and speed) cameras are a simple way to extract much needed revenue from the serfs without having to technically raise taxes. Apparently it took a study to prove this fact:

“Emanuel has credited the cameras for a 47 percent reduction in dangerous right-angle, or “T-bone,” crashes. But the Tribune study, which accounted for declining accident rates in recent years as well as other confounding factors, found cameras reduced right-angle crashes that caused injuries by just 15 percent.

At the same time, the study calculated a corresponding 22 percent increase in rear-end crashes that caused injuries, illustrating a trade-off between the cameras’ costs and benefits.”

A reduction of 15% here coupled with a rise of 22% there means more of what is supposed to be prevented is happening, right?

“So the question now is: If we eliminate a certain type of collision and increase the other and overall it stays the same, is there an argument that it is fair to go with the program?”

Fair? Who gives a shit about fair. It’s always about the money, always:

“…350 red light cameras and raised more than $500 million in $100 tickets since 2002.”

Mo’ money! Mo’ money! Mo’ money!
