Wait a minute MB, this is *exactly* what we were talking about: an
of a camera being set up and eventually resulting in a relaxation of a
that suddenly became much easier to prosecute.

The article talks about a red light that was routinely being run, a
camera went into operation, $10k a day being generated by the city, the
city acknowledging that the intersection is designed illogically, the
government deciding to stop fining the light runners. This is EXACTLY
what I would have expected, or rather what I hoped would happen.

Transparency may end up being the libertarian's best friend. spike
