Photo Ticketing - PSA

A bill has been introduced in the Colorado legislature to ban the use of cameras to enhance municipal revenues hand out tickets. Leftie* or rightie, you should support this.

Dear Rep. -----
Please support Rep. Stephen Humphrey with his bill to outlaw photo ticketing in Colorado. 10 other states have already done this and we would be well advised to join them.

Wails of anguish from municipalities that would see the gravy train miss their station can be safely ignored as the total population of Mayors and councilmen in Colorado is less than the grateful population of your own district.

*Unless you're an elected municipal politician of the sort who never saw a constituent problem that couldn't be turned into a revenue source without fixing it. That would be most of them to my observation.
